"My part of the bill was $1000.13.
$675.55 plus the taxes and $148 mounting fee."

1000.13 minus fee 148 ------852.13
852.13 minus tire 675.55----176.58 (Sales Tax----26%????)
Federal excise tax is charged on any truck tire with a maximum load capacity of 3500 lbs. or higher. The higher the rating, the higher the tax amount. This is in addition to sales tax. Still, 26% does seem high.

The rough road was just west of West Memphis, Arkansas. The tire I shed the tread on was coming up on eight years old. It had good tread with a slight scallop on the edge from being a steer tire when I had a loose wheel bearing. I posted this to find out if I had been hosed so maybe it wasn't that bad of a deal. this is the complete cost for the one tire:
WHEEL POSITION D1RO Item Cat Product Code Description Price Tire 756306050G670 RV MRT 245/75R22.5 (G) $675.55 Labor - MNT 01 ERS (REG hours) 1st Tire Mount$148.50 Labor 000 000 Large Tire Disposal (17"-24.5")$15.00 Product T39E Sonsio 3Yr Warranty 19$43.50 Product 041 210 000 Brass Valve Stems$10.50 D1RO Totals $893.05 TOTALS Description Price Tire / Wheel Total$893.05 Federal Excise Tax$11.06 Sales Tax$96.00 Grand Total$1,000.11The tires I got in Wichita Falls were Toyo M154 245/75 22.5 . Cost $280.10 each. Total cost including all taxs, mounting, balancing, disposal fee and new valve stems was $1538.69.

The big bummer is the $675 Goodyear in my garage that's only got 500 miles on it and is worth only $100?

I'm surprised RVs don't have a spare mounted on the back, like a Toyota FJ. There's never anything there except the stupid ladder (which nobody ever wants to use).

You forgot there is FET on the tire, so two taxes: sales and FET.

Also as Wes listed above, the old tire disposal fee, the new valve, and the warranty.

I'd say you got screwed, a little, but it's not easy to shop prices on the side of the highway. My one 19.5" side of the road replacement back in 2012 cost me $500 while the year old tire it replaced was $250.

If you have room somewhere in the coach save the tire for next time. Wrap it in the heavy shrink wrap packers use to hold a pallet together and store it. Although un-mounted it still weights a bit its manageable. Otherwise post on Craig's list for $300. $100 is what you probably could have got for the aged out Toyo's.

Too heavy. my 19.5" tires mounted on a rim are close to 80 pounds. 22.5" are over 100 pounds. At that weight getting it on a rack is difficult if even possible unless you have two men and a strong teenager. Below floor storage is premium real estate most owners may not wish to give up for a tire.

I use my ladder all the time. Easiest way to check the roof plus makes a great flag pole hanger.

I forget the manufacturer. There is one who makes a carrier that plugs into the hitch receiver and has a lifting mechanism to reduce the tire loading effort.
