    Whats a good alternative for buying tires?

    Any good local tire dealers?
    Hoping to find good deal for my Mazda 5 2006.
    I usually got my tires at CT, but these guys killing me !
    For some reasons prices for this specific model are insane....

    I'm in Toronto by the way.
    Thank you in advance!

    Re: Whats a good alternative for buying tires?

    Lately I've been going to Kal Tire and having good luck.

    When I want recommendations, I've been sending emails or facebook messages to all my friends and co-worker. People really do want to help one another! (Unless you are a greedy CT Owner, LOL!)

    Lots of recommendations for alternatives to Crappy Tire, here too: https://www.facebook.com/Canadiantire

    Pretty hilarious!

    Kal Tire comes up there, too. Or Costco or even Walmart. I like to support small local shops, though.

    Thank you for the reply!!
    I tried KalTire, but the prices are far from great.... not sure why...
    Costco and Wallmart are in the same category as CT...
    I actaully anded up getting my tires from here. www.getmetires.com
    It says they get prices from bunch of local ( Toronto ) tire dealers... The price was pretty good and I didn't have to call 10 dealers sign me up.
    I'm going to install the tires this week, so I'll post how it went. I just had to pay a 5% deposit on the website, before they told me who the dealer is.
    If its not a scam, sounds like a good idea
