I have been using my TM2 tablet for school. As such it has been in and out of my backpack multiple times per day, and in the constant pulling out/putting in my backpack the rubber feet have fallen off and become lost.
I have been looking through http://hppartsurfer.com for the replacement parts but have been assured by the support staff that the only way to purchase these feet is in the part # 592963-001 which is the whole bottom plastic piece for $110.
It wouldn't be a problem for me if the missing feet were not angled, and now that they are missing my laptop constantly rocks back and forth when I touch the screen.
Does anyone know of another way to buy these, or have you possibly had the same predicament?
Any help would be appreciated.

I found a Rubber parts kit you can buy
592966-001 SPS-KIT RUBBER LCD/BE
it is still $52.25 so I know you were looking for something cheaper but that's as cheap a kit I can find that has what you want.

I have the same issue. One of my rubber feet is missing.
Clearly this is a design flaw and HP should address our complaints and send us the rubber feet free of charge. The complete rubber kit (592966-001) costs $60, no way I am going to pay that.
I will call HP customer care and see what they say.

Just got off the phone with HP support. Although my laptop is in warranty they have to charge me fir the ubber feet.
So I wonder if HP strategy to profitability is as follows ;)
1. Design ok product with flaws such as rubber feet falling off and sell them with relatively low margins.
2. When an issue pops up, then HP makes up by charging outrageous prices (i.e. $60 for a piece of rubber)
Well, I have to say goodbye HP and welcome Apple. I used to be a big fan of HP (bought 3 laptops, 2 printers), but this is ridiculous! Never had a problem like this one with Apple products before.
BTW: this post goes on twitter, facebook, yelp, etc.!

Rubber feet for HP Touchsmart 2 (TM2) are available here:
Worked for me, HP support did take too long for me and are not gonna help you when your warranty period is over. When you warranty is over you have to order a kit which is over 40$
