Just got my 7 year old rears replaced yesterday. A bit more expensive than yours - $1950 out the door. Big tires - 11R22.5. The price included balancing with Equal.

Gary, I'm near you (north of Gainesville) and shopping for tires (265/75R 22.5). If you don't mind, where did you find them and brand, etc. I can get Michelin but not much else around here.

oldtimer there is a plce in ocala to get your toyos call them they will tell u who or search there site for the dealer Home | Toyo Tires

here is an old message i got from steamer the place is in lees burgh for you here hope this helps
hello hey how are you liking those toyo tires ? did you have them balanced ? where ru per say im getting a little highr price on those just curious thanks dave
Hello Dave,
I'm happy with these tires so far. The only downside is for awhile they had a strong odor like a leaking black water tank. That has finally subsided. I had them spin balanced and true shaved. These particular tire if they have an (E) imprinted are not suppose to need balancing but I had them done anyway.

I am in Florida about 60 miles northwest of Orlando in a place called The Villages. The tire company is Barrnet Tire in Leesburg about 7 mile from me.

The difference in cost could be size. I suspect your Endeavor diesel may have a little larger tires even though mine are 22.5.

Let me know if you need more info.

I got the best price at Callaghan Tires in Ocala (352-873-9005). They are a commercial truck tire dealer and carry Michelins, Bridgestone, Firestone and Continental. I went with the Continentals.

Callaghan quoted me a price per tire, mounted and balanced with Equal, that was a bit less than GCR tire wanted for the same tire without mount & Balance. That added up to well over $200 savings.
