I bought a set for the Honda several years ago and were cheap. Now, they're $30-35 more per tire. Other brands haven't jumped that radical. So, what happened? Popularity?

Very well could be. Anecdotally, I do see a lot of folks running them, and I see a lot of people recommending them online. I was satisfied with the set I had before I totaled that car.

They do seem to be somewhat of a "sleeper" tire; maybe the price is catching up to the reputation.

General Exclaim HPX.

Wally World only. Working well for me. Probably better price point than the RT43 although I bought them last year and haven't priced lately.

I just bought some 18" RT43s (4) for $122.00 each.

Could of maybe done a little better online-but due to circumstances I needed them right away.

So for kicks and giggles thought I do a price comparison of the RT43s I'm currently running 215/50-17 (V rated). I checked many sites including Simple Tire, Tires Easy, WM, DT, DTD, all have them ~$119 each. I've had them several years now, but that's about inline with what I paid. In that instance I too needed them quickly so couldn't wait for DT/DTD promo time. Also on Simple Tire compared them to other brands I might be interested in, Pirrelli, GY, Yoko and Cooper. RT43 less than Cooper CS5, and Yoko Avid Ascend GT. Much less than GY I would consider equivalent. And less than Pirelli P4. So, doesn't seem out of line imo.

Now if one can wait for DT/DTD promo period and/or General rebate, obviously can do better.

Of course the price jumped. If you read posts on BITOG, they are used for anything, driving to curing cancer.

I always wondered how do they differ from RT43s. Does anybody have the first-hand experience with both of the tires?

I have been tracking 205/55-16 for a while and price is fixed at $96

Email General and ask.

I once ordered a set of Walmart specific General that I suspect was identical compound wise as their generic tire of the same line, other than the trend compound. General's email reply confirmed this.

It's a second tier tire at first tier tire prices.

I remember around 2009 when general altimax tires were <75$. I'd go through so many tires in high school thinking I was cool burning out in a ford ranger.

Now they're 100-120 crzy

Maybe it is a supply issue? My first set of RT43's were made in Brazil. Second set first of the year three made in France and one in USA.

I believe I paid $159 each for some 245/45r20 RT43’s with a V speed rating. So far I really like them... we’ll see how they do in snow.
