Bought new rims- Tire suggestions/ Place to buy??

I just bought m3 reps, square set up, 18/40/8.5. Where is the best place to get deals on entry level tires in Durham/GTA? Also, any recommendations on tire size?

Thanks

please just dont stretch your tires ... get a 225-235 wide, I went to Buffalo to get my tires after I got em off tire rack... as far as the other dimensions, its up to what fits, there are tire calculators online, I kept my overall size the same when I upped my rim size

Would recommend also going to the US, you will save quite a bit. Tire prices in Canada are retarded and the selection even worse.

that will fit too but cost more ... ... but seriously the 50$ in gas it will cost ya and the 4 hour drive, you save money ... and bonus points with a lady friend as she can go shopping ... my apologies tho I dont know of a place in the GTA i have to check too many places every time I look ... If you start with what tire you want you might narrow down your choices

TireRack ships to a recomended installer, I had them mount the tires while I took my former lady shoppin ... I also made a Craigslist ad for someone in buffalo who "bought the worng size tire" and " just wanted to get rid of em" just incase 1000$ in tires ... less moeny in taxes

Tire Rack is also very good in Reviews .. always look at the best and the worst, ususally the people who give the worst reviews have had better tires and will let you know how thay compare ... the General Tire UHP or somethin has a 8.5 rating but its a piece of crap

8.5 * 25.4 = 215 ... You could prob goto 235 but it depends how big your sidewall is ... See if you can pm stance factory their good with that kinda question
