Good tire shops in GTA

Guys... I'm looking for a good tire shop in the GTA area other than Simply Tires (bad experience) and tires 23 (no complaints with them)... Any suggestions?

Thanks

GoForTires (Esna Park & Denison) I had been and purchased mulitiple sets in the past few years. Good price & friendly service.

However, they don't have Hunter machine for balancing, if you care. As for mounting, they had been real careful with my rims.

Speedstar in Markham has been good for service and price. They can be kind of slow during weekends though.

I am surprised you had a bad experience with Allen.

What happened if you don't mind me asking.

Went in simply tires and booked appointment a week in advance then to find out the night before that they can't get my tires and that I have wait 3 weeks or more for them to order it... I need them ASAP as I'm riding on a spare

I called tires 23 and they said the tires will be in on Monday and they were around 50 bones cheaper all in...

I've used simply tires before an recommended a boat load of people to them.... It's just a shame..

So far tires 23 haven't let me down...

Have you tried Firestone at all?

They normally have decent pricing on their performance winter tires and they know well enough to be careful with your car. Their bread and butter comes from labour, so essentially most people are only charging $5-15/tire over cost.

Balancing and mounting is another story. Again, this is "labour"

^ Although the E class is 4matic, you should really put on some real winter tires. DWS may be alright for dusting of snow. Just my 2 cents.

Thanks... All 2 cents are much appreciated... However, I've had all seasons on the car for 8 years with Michelin energy ... And the car has been absolutely phenomenal all year round. Also, the 4matic system is 4-wheel drive vs. all wheel drive system... Big difference

On the flip side, my 335is with stock potenza is scary at temps below 7 degrees... I put on the conti ts810s early and they handle great..

I found Wheelz2go a good place to deal with. Las and Gary are good guys to deal with.

Exactly. They will NOT stop as well as a winter tire on dry, wet or snow...thats a fact. Dws wont be as good in summer as a summer tire. Why not have summer and winter?

Tires 2 3 for reliable service.

Car craze in Brampton sucks and they scratched up my rims and they truly suck at balancing
