    Best place for tires (car)

    Finally, my OEM tires are wearing thin. Looking to upgrade to better tires. Where is the best place to get them, here in lower mainland or across the border?

    Suggestions please.

    In case you are wondering, I am looking to get 4 Bridgestone Potenza RE950 205/55/HR16 tires. I called around, they range from $180 To $210 each. Ouch.

    Thanks.

    I’m not crazy, I just need to get off this island. The doctors don’t believe I invented the chocolate éclair. But I did. I’m going to burn them all and drink soup from their skulls! Happy soup! Untie me and I’ll kill you last!

    Tirerack.com

    tirerack.com has them for USD116 each.

    I bought four Yokohama tires from them three years ago and I was happy with their service and product. Don't know about now.

    Church doors are always open to whoever wants to enter, but they're only open to those who are willing to be sheep. The service of God is really service to those self-proclaimed holy men who hold the franchise. Accumulating material grandeur is the goal, not the improvement of the people's lives. Independent thought is discouraged. Raising the individual up is not part of the plan; keeping the flock docile, distracted, and deluded is what it's all about.

    Sorry, forgot to mention that I was in the US when I bought them; so no issues with customs.

    I believe you have the option of shipping the tires to one of their participating tire mounting places (instead of to yourself), when you are ordering them. You can search for the nearest one on the site. If you can have them mailed (I chose UPS Ground, I think) to some place in Washington state, you could potentially drive over and have them installed there (for 10-15 dollars a tire, I am guessing).

    you shouldnt have to pay more that 120 per tire. just get something with a high tread rating, like the yoko avid h4

    I run Yokohama Avid H4's (215/45/17's) on my import and they are a pretty decent all-season better-than-standard-OEM tire.

    I paid about $150 apiece before taxes, etc. at National Tire Warehouse on River Road in Delta, B.C. There's a guy there named Mike who's pretty good to deal with. They've got some basic performance suspension bits there too if you're looking for that. Their service is pretty good, especially the after-service.

    I don't work for them.
