I wouldn't be looking for the cheapest tires you can find.It's like anything else you get what you paid for.....when your life is riding on them saving few dollars is not worth it.

He also will not replace tires that break a belt. Oh you drive too hard!!!, they went out of business, yada yada yada. 2 mths old the guys a bum!


Go to Goodyear Auto Service, 55 black dirt road. It is by the old white rose, on the corner by Twist'n Shout. Got tires a month ago comparable prices, fast and damn those tire dig. Lovin' it.

Do Yourself and your family a favour. DON'T BUY A CHEAP PAIR OF TIRES.

AS a Mechanic one thing I have learned over the years is you get more mileage and better road handling form a better more pricey pair. A cheap Pair will cost less up front but will not perform as well under extreme road conditions. It is more economical to pay more for a tire that lasts longer.

Total tire all the way,you dont have to buy new to get good tires.Total gets lots of near new tires that people get rid of because the go with custom wheels.
Sometimes you can get tires and wheels together.

So go buy some good quality used from Total Tire for your old beater. About 35 bucks each.

Total Tire is awesome. They treat you nicely and are fair on pricing. These people really know how to run a business. Are you listening Queen Street merchants?

yeah well total tire sells new and really good used tires..the used tires are with lots of tread on them...and u say the tires don't perform well...my tires that i buy at total tire are used and last 2 years before having to replace...some mechanics try to make u buy the more expensive tires to make a profit..

I am going to say tirerack.com.... ship them to weirs pick them up and you will save yourself over $200. I assume you wanted winter tires so that is what is listed above... Otherwise here are some all seasons...

Tires are just parts of the shelf, until they're installed!
