Does the prices of alloys include the special bolts also? HR is slightly higher than other brands. If its inclusive of nuts, fitting and alignment then it may be OK. you can still bargain for something

Michelin XM1 price quoted seems to be fine. I think u can bargain a little to make it 2400 per tyre.
The two tyres u have mentioned are one of the best available 13" tyres in the market..
