Good place for tires in Durham Region

Looking for a good tire shop in Durham.
Need a couple fronts 255/35zr20 P zeros.
So far seems the best bet is tire rack for 1k to the door.
Would like to deal local though, if any one knows anyone

The Pirelli's seem to be WAY overpriced. You can find the Hankook K110 Ventus V12 or the Continental ExtremeContact DW for just a little more than half the price.

Pretty much anywhere in Durham region is expensive and can't compete with tire rack prices when it comes to bigger high performance tires. They simply don't do enough volume.

Probably why he ignored your wish...

It is kind of hard to beat tireracks prices.
I will probably go through this set and then try something different.
