I picked up another set at the store when they had an additional 10% off last week. They are also available by phone, T30's for $149/set and T30 EVO's for $169/set, as of last week. Buying in stores has the advantage of being able to pick the freshest build date. Most I saw were '17, with some late months '16. Personally, I have no problem buying tires that are a few yrs old, since they are usually store in warehouses and are not subjected to heat cycling. But... if I can choose, I'd obviously pick the freshest meat.
The T-series has been my go-to brand since their introduction, and I have ridden on T30, T30EVO and now T31. Bridgestone almost always has a spring time rebate ($40-60), so typical cost has been about $200/set. Performance-wise, they are every bit as good as the other name brands. I avoid riding in the wet, so I don't much care for the heavily siped tires made so popular by the Michelin Road series. Bridgestone's T-series traditionally have bucked that trend and has higher land to sea ratios optimized for dry traction, especially on the shoulders where you are leaned over hard. I like that.
