    I'd suggest choosing which tire(s) you want first and then compare prices from available retailers. It's not typical that one source consistently has the best deal available on every tire. In regards to a cheap set, I'd suggest checking out the General Altimax Arctic. Good tire, great value.

    I usually buy mine from discount tire or tire buyer and ship to my usa address and pick them up, I run firestone winterforce and have no complaints besides a bit of roadnoise. My brother has had good luck with pmctire and his sailun ice blazers.

    Simplytire

    They were very professional when I purchased my summer tires, when I need to get new winters, they will get my business. I think they may have or still do now, sponsor the audizine site.

    We only use Handler Wheels for our wheel/tire needs. You order online and they ship them to your door.

    Tire rack is always a bargain. I'm trying to remember what my last set was, but they were amazing in the western NY snow. I can go look if you need to known. I've had many a pair of snow tires

    Get mine at Kaltire. Get a really good deal through my employer. Cheaper than getting them in the US

    I had luck at 1010tires.

    Lots of options and you can really do some good price comparing, without calling a bunch of different shops

    In the last 18 months, I have ordered 3 sets of tires from www.quattrotires.com . They are located about 45mins outside Montreal. Even with shipping, the prices are great.

    this place is a big joke. I went into the shop and ask for winter package quoting, the person I spoke to directly was Dave and since I wanted a specific wheel, he told me he will contact me later. After waited out for 1 full week, I emailed him again to see the status of the wheel which resulted in no reply at all. I then sent 2 more follow up emails over the course of another week, yet again, no reply. I have since given up on this place. If this guy, Dave is too lazy to even send me a reply, then it sure looks like they don't treat their customers with respect at all
