Looks like a lot of people are looking for summer tires. As you do your research... post your findings here to help out fellow members as well.

So post the store you got the price from... the brand/model of tire... tire size... price... if it includes installation/delivery... etc.

Let's leave this thread for summer/performance tires only...

You don't have to list only these brands... but some of the more popular tires are...

Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3
BF Goodrich g-Force T/A KDW
Toyo T1-R
General Exclaim UHP
Falken FK-452
Falken Zeix ZE-512
Nexen N3000


Please don't post about Moto-Master tires... :pissed:

Ordered my 215/45 R17 General Tire Exclaim UHP from Kipling Tire. Installed & balanced $135 each, plus taxes.
Did a comp store check as well. Canadian Tire has same tires for $108+30/tire installed=$138, plus taxes. Canadian Tire also offers a Road hazard warranty plan for $8/tire.

Kipling Tire told me these tires were a bit more difficult to source, and that the distributor (Continental) is not bringing these into Canada anymore.

I find a good way to buy new or almost new tires is to patiently watch the FS thread here on my.IS. I've been accumulating tires all winter. I now have a set of new Michelin Pilot Primacy's and 2 OEM Dunlops. I'm averaging $125/tire for what I consider some decent tires.

2 of them came with nice rims too...

I don't know if this is a deal but these are for sale now...

From Extreme Wheel and Tire in Richmond Hill

Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's... 215/45/17... their official price is $279... but there's room to bargain.

Are you crazy? Tires23 has them installed, taxes and everything for $540... I just checked there, but decided to go with falken-452's which were $610 all in. So i don't know where you go to get your shit, but, you're getting ripped.

Possibly more! 18" gets really pricing, and 19" is worst f$#@%^$#@ worst!

Call them and find out anyways, it'll be cheaper than $790 for sure.
