Believe leave it or not I find Max Motorsports 2be the cheapest. Its on dundas and dixie. Everytime i need tires they always got the best prices for the same tires as elsewhere. Call and talk too Ken. The number is 905 804 8822. Always worth a look.

Bramalea Tire? I've bough about ten sets off of them over the years... good prices... very busy place though... I always drop the rims off in the morning and come back the next day. Ask for Eric.

Angry Stay away from this rim shop !!!!!!!!!

Just STAY AWAY from Wheel and Tire Zone on Queensway and Islington. I could not believe how disgusting a "business man/owner" (I use that term very loosely), can be to a paying customer.

Long story short, they stuck weights on my dish and refused to change it, not to mention supposedly fixed a bent rim. I had to go to another rim shop on Queensway, west of Dixie for them to re-balance and hide the weights. I'm telling you they are not worth it, as soon as they get your money, forget about it !!!!!

I agree with Anuk... Allen at Simply Tire is awesome.

Blew out a tire on the highway two days ago, and since my tires are a retarded size in the rear (thanks, BMW) it's gonna take a couple of days to get them... He gave me TWO BMW rims with tires to drive around with until the new set (of 4) arrives.

He is a lifesaver to say the least, and a totally professional and stand up guy.
