Tires Crown Bus

Hi everyone I am looking to get tires for our Crown Bus, it currently has 12R 22.5 h tires. I was quoted like $2700 for all 6 not including tax and "additional" parts which can be another 5% from what they said. Is that too pricey or is that a just price? Also are these the only size tires or type of tires I can get for our bus?

Right now the 2 front steer tires are both showing some cracking all 6 tires have a date code from 2003-2005. So they are past the time, although the back ones don't look in bad condition as much as the front steer ones which have some cracking on the side walls.


If anyone with experience can guide me? Are 12 R 22.5 H tires the only size and type of tires I can get or are there more comparable tires for maybe a little less? I type that into Google and it shows me other tires too but idk which ones are compatible.

H probably stands for "Heavy", next to the H should be a set of digits like 143/M, which would be the load and speed rating of the tire.
