Ima go to the states and install 2 new tires soon (one of my kumho estenza's has a busted sidewall, figure might as well buy 2 new tires). I can have them shipped to my cousin's house. But where could i have them installed and what should i do with my old tires?

Why don't you ask your cousin for a recommendation as to where you can do the tire install?

As for your old tires, just junk them!
Let the shop dispose of them.

I've found that only in exotic sizing (like 35 series and down) does it really make sense to buy tires in the States, drive down there to get them, and install them there. Once you factor in the cost of mileage (i.e. not just gas), it doesn't make much sense.

Try www.tiretrends.com for cheap Canadian pricing (they ship from the West Coast too, no tariffs or PST).
