I think I paid a little over $1100....they are cheaper than the RE050's at TireRack (or they were anyway). They are a great tire, no complaints here. Just as good as the RE050's in many respects, but better where it counts in performance. Steering Response is lacking just a tad, but probably the best you'll find in a street tire. Yokohama variant is a touch better, but isn't quite as comfortable a tire. Unless you plan on road coursing it, RE-11 is a best buy IMO.
