Yup $1,100 a tire is the cheapest I found when I was shopping for my rims&tires.

$1,149.00/each tire http://superbuytires.com/tires/305/30R26

This guy got a deal on ebay 4 new 305/30/26 Kuhmo tires for $2,025.02

last i checked dealer cost was $1079 each. SEMA is just around the corner, more companies will come out with them... Hankook and Falken have them already listed on their websites.

good news, hankook (which is a WAY better ride than kumho) , is coming out with new 26" tires, supposedly by the end of this month. (just in time for sema) and they are supposdely going to be priced at around the same as their 24" tires. (400-500) each. so if anyone is looking for 26" tires i suggest you wait till hankook causes competition for kumho and prices start to drop.

whats the ride difference between 26's and 24's?

on kumho tires, because of the hard rubber side wall, not only are 24's and 26's extremly hard to mount, but they have almost NO difference between the ride of 24's and 26's. they both ride like shit.
