We are looking for winter tires for our van and we were wondering who the cheapest tire supplier is? We have heard Total tire is the cheapest any other suggestions?

cheap as in quality or cheap as in price? It depends on the size and brand of tire. But why would you want to cheap out on a key safety feature for winter driving???

Cheap on price obviously. Because I still have to pay out my arse but even 10 bucks cheaper is still 10 bucks cheaper? Why does anyone want a better price? Cheaper doesn't have to mean dangerous...

Walmart will be cheapest both in price and quality. Total Tire on Bruce St will be the best bang for your buck though.

Is a tire for one third less, that lasts half as long, a good deal??

Even the tire manufacturers are against CT too soundbear? It's not just the parts manufacturers?

Wow, such a conspiracy! Call the evening news and blow this thing wide open!

Since you feel so strongly would you like to buy me some tires? I fail to see how asking for a place with low prices gets such ridiculous answers. I am sure you have never bought a single thing on sale in your lifetime.

Anyways, CT has them for 79.99 a tire, which isn't too bad. My fiance is going to go and look at the 2 other places before we settle.

My tires were well over $800. I payed a bit more but they have lasted way better than other tires.

Interesting question. To answer it, you'd have to check a few assumptions. First, what is the life expectancy of the more expensive ones? How long will you be keeping the car? (If you're only keeping the car another year, why bother worrying about life expectancy of the tires?) Also, say you invest the difference in cost, what is your rate of return?

Tough question SB. Very tough. Certainly difficult to answer given the amount of data provided here. Maybe it's a question we should leave up to the original poster, what do you think? ;)

And I suspect I'm a licenced mechanic (two actually) who is also licenced to drive anything on the road, and who, over 40 plus years, has bought a tire or two.

I prefer tires NOT supplied by the lowest bidder.

You suspect you are a licensed mechanic (two actually) or you actually are licensed mechanic (two actually)?

CTC is a lot higher than most places in town on tires. I hear GM has an ad on the radio saying they have the cheapest winter tires. Hmmmmm. With you're theory EVRYONE STAY AWAY!

Every ad you hear anywhere says we have the lowest priced tires. Ive worked in a tire shop for 6 and a half years. Im a licensed wheel, tire and rim mechanic. Soundbear has alot more merit to his opinions than you all give him credit for. In this case he knows what he's talking about. Stop being so judgmental and listen to the guy for a few.

DM46, if people listened to professional opinion more, we'd have less work!!! Thanks!!

Well I just got my tires from CT because (supposedly, I was not there) Wal-mart did not have them and he didn't want to keep looking around. So we got 2 tires for 220.

Across the river ,cheaper prices and installation, our dollar is on par also. No duty ,what can be easier to smuggle than tires already installed on the car. LOL . Its like smuggling a oil change.
