Where to buy Bridgestone tires in Canada?

Hey guys!

Found a bubble in the sidewall of the Bridgestone Potenza Runflat this morning on the 18" sport package wheels on the 330i (225/40/18)

Where do you all get your tires? 1010tires.com had them for $415.00 Canadian, each. I don't mind waiting for them in the mail.

This sucks, because I was hoping I'd replace all 4 with something cheaper, and local. I get FANTASTIC deals on Toyo, Falken, etc. with a work discount, but nothing for Bridgestone ... of course.

Thanks for the help, guys!

ZB.

www.tiretrends.com I have bought 13 tires from them, however....


I buy all my stuff from www.tirerack.com now. Even with the exchange, duty, and shipping, it is still cheaper than anywhere in Canada.

Tires I have shipped to my house, wheels/tires I have shipped to my drop box in the USA and go get them.

Tire 23 will be the best if you are local in Toronto.

Tirerack use UPS, which you will be expected lots of fees on top of your stuff...

I recall I ordered a 2000US rims + tires and UPS charged me $500 on top.

Last I checked, tirerack was very canadian shopper friendly. They list exactly the amount of duty/taxes,shipping and brokerage fees you would pay when you check out your items so theres no surprises. LLBean does this too, btw.

Swap to continental RFT you won't believe the difference. The Bridgestone RFT are crappy.

Trust me that wasn't presented on my checkout items page.

Only msg I see is "there will be custom duties depends on your location".
