Where do you guys buy your rubber?

Tires, not condoms. In the market for new 18" summer rubber AND new snow tires. I'd like to find a decent place to get both sets for a good price. I've bought from 1010tires.ca before, but not sure how they compare price wise. And everything in Ottawa is a total rip off.

Now if only I could make up my mind on WHAT tires to get!

theres a place down the street from my house. he sells tires for cheap installed and everything. i guess he saves a bunch of money since he doesn't have lifts to pay for...they use regular jack stands.

Thanks for the replies. Awaiting some quotes now. I know TireRack has great service, but I just assumed cross-border duty/shipping would be a killer.
