The link I gave you ( was a pretty good price, with a rebate. They were $150 each there for the 235/55/18" V-rated tire. I needed the tires yesterday, so I just got them locally from a small repair shop. The ones I had on my Tucson GLS were 225/55/17" T-rated and were $140 each mounted, & balanced, plus state tax, with a $50 rebate.

The Sportage tires 235/55/18" V-rated were $175 each, mounted, & balanced plus state tax, I just missed the rebate there.

I was actually going to put the same size as the Tucson Limited 225/55/18" T-rated because I figured they'd be cheaper, (I figured both vehicles would be the same size, & weight, because they are twins, so it shouldn't matter?) But, then I erred on the side of caution, also because the speedometer would read a few more mph higher.

You may find these locally for even less, plus a rebate, but either way they are "heads above" the Hankooks, and even better then the highly rated Michelin Harmony as was described in the Motor trend test link.
