Costco is something like $8/tire...

I think my guy does it for $10/tire. Where are you in the city?

Carling Tire is cheap, I've got it done for $25 when he's not busy for four, cash. Near the corner of Carling / Maitland, in the Sunoco garage (with all the tires in it.)

Are you talking about the dude at carling tire? What happened. I am planning on going there after my exam on friday but I would prefer not to have to deal with a morron to save 10 dollars. Especially after getting no sleep from studying all night.

Stop by see if you can get more then 2 words out of him.. Maybe it was just me but I got a bad vibe from him. It's the same place jay's talking about..

Probably couldn't get a word out of him as he only speaks the Espanol and is from Brazil. In any case, if you go to costco / cnd tire / etc, good luck with that. Most have a few days wait for appointments, and Costco doesn't take them so you have to show up at 7am and wait.

Edit: YMMV, just pointing out my own experiences.

I'd have to aggree with Dave. I tried dealing with the Carling tire guy, and he came off as a bit of an A-hole. Talked to them on the phone, and he told me to come in to get the tires installed, and when I actually went in, he said "sorry, I stopped taking people at noon. Try again another day." I was pretty pissed. Endded up going to Crappy tire...they were expensive though. So I would say give Costco a try.

If you need somebody with a costco membership I can help you out

If you go to the one on Merivale you may see the nice e60 M5 w/ the 17" winters that's always around. Maybe it belongs to somebody that works there? Who the hell drives an M5 like that in winter anyways lol....

Someone that works on Colonnade has an E60 M5. It might be just him picking up groceries. Is it silver?
