You learned the trick on SuperEvil last year. Buy your tires in Oregon. No sales tax, and far cheaper. Just call and order in advance.

How much did you save on your truck tires? 6-800 or something?

Here, canadian tire, when tires purchased you can add a few more dollars not much to get free repairs and if the tire is unrepairable you get a new tire and the only charge for that tire is to get the insurance again which i think is only 14 dollars

At the tire shop Pdad bought his truck tires at, road hazard warranty is free. But they don't have a store in Canada.

That quote was from Kal Tire, very popular out west eh.
Oh sure I'll call around yet, might even save $40 or $45 ....maybe?

My point of the post is what Bill said, I saved $800 last summer buying my truck tires in Corvallis than getting them here.
When it comes to car parts the States has us beat hands down.
Firewood on the other hand is free here and they want $8 at the koa in Corvallis for a grocery bag full.

Hey!!! I'll drive down with a load of blocks and trade for some new skins

Firewood is cheap by the cord. Expensive by the bag at KOA.
