Default WoW

Well I have been on a mission the past few days looking for All Season or Winter Tires.

I called my local tire supplier and got what I thought were some good prices

$1000.00 for 4 tires I thought was a deal

then after some more reading I saw that most people with the GXP are just going with KDWS all season. (were likely not going to get much snow this year anyways)

Called my supplier right back

235/50ZR18 360.00 a tire

SO then I get this bright Idea to check Tire Rack.......



























79.00 a tire for what i was just quoted 360.00 Knowing that yhou can not use tire rack I called a few dealers just over the bridge 3 of them to be exact.

1. 129.00 installed.
2. 119.00 installed
3. 114.00 installed

So thats 1140.00 here in canada
or 460.00 US or 400.00 canadian lol almost 700.00 cheaper WTF

anyways they have them in stock and I'll get them on friday. Paul at Cornwall Tire told me t bring in my Bill from Laplant Tire so he can yell at the REP.

Oh can not use Tire Rack for price comp

I am not going to use tire rack simply for the reason that it will be so close in price and with Tire Rack there is not dealer support. And I wouldn't get my tires until Monday or Tuesday. Laplants have then and booked me for install Friday.
