Is this a good deal on new tires for my '00 e250 rwd?

I'm far from home, on the road and am almost down to the wear markers on my existing tires. Could probably get another 5K mi out of 'em, but am tempted by a BF deal I stumbled across.

Pep boys has a buy 2 get 2 free deal on the Cooper Adventurer (which is probably a similar tire to the Cooper AT3 or Discoverer). Tire is E-Rated with 60Kmi warranty. I see the total coming up to $460.94 after installation (Installation is $90.96–which seems a little pricey compared to sams/costco/walmart). Is this a good deal for these tires?

There is one other minor gotcha. I have an unused recalled Michelin LTX as my spare which I could have replaced with a new Michelin LTX (or uniroyal/bf Goodrich). Another option could be waiting until I find a deal on a Michelin tire and only buy 3 of 'em and put one of my existing worn tires into the spare position.

What is your driving profile? For general paved road use the LTXs are great, and if you already have a “free” one you’re ahead of the game. If you need an AT tire though that’s a different story and changes the equation. I have Cooper ATs on my van and they seem ok, although I haven’t put too many miles on them yet.
