Those prices sound about right these days, unfortunately.
I was looking for the same tire last summer. The local Firestone dealer quoted me $975 installed but couldn"t tell me how long it would take them to find one. The same Firestone dealer had replaced my other rear tire 16 years ago for less than $500, and that included some required welding repair of the rim. So I decided to go with another tire place 25 miles away, for $650 installed.
They came to my place while I was at work and installed the new tire. When I got home, I found the new tire was labeled "13.6/12 x 38" and it"s noticeably narrower than the Firestone tire, which was labeled 13.6 x 38. But they both are the same height, and it"s worked fine for me so far. I only use my tractor to push snow in the winter and pull a bushhog to mow horse pastures in the summer.
