Quick Poll: Are bike tyres too expensive?

There’s an interesting debate kicking off in the Bikemagic forum at the moment, centering on the issue of mountain bike tyre prices.

A look at any online retailer reveals prices for a typical tyre range anywhere from £19.99 to £49.99. Is £50 for a tyre way too much or is it justified, considering the amount of development into tread pattern, compound and other technologies that differs modern tyres from those available 10-15 years ago?

Do you think mountain bike tyres are overpriced? How much do you pay for your tyres?
