Send a message via MSN to 1GR
Discounttiredirect.com. Most of the time, it's cheaper then what I even get with my discount being a technician.

The Canadian dollar is just about par, even slightly stronger than the American these days. Good time to buy south of the border if you want a deal.

Not sure, but they factor it before checkout. I seem to remember around $200 +/-

that is a smart way for them to sell tires. A good way to buy tires now would be to go down and buy them there. If they are under 800 bucks you can roll em home duty and tax free.

My understanding is that the duty free limits were raised a month ago or so. If you are south of the border for 48hrs your allowance is now $800. I will see if I can find a link....here is one:

Yeah but 48 hours means you need to stay there for 2 days. Thats $100+ for a hotel...

Yep. I travel to the U.S. several times per year, so I would just go as it conveniences me. The way I look at it, if I am down there and save a couple hundy+ on my tires, that easily covers my hotel.

I dunno about that. I mean if your already going and have a place to stay or camp, sure. But gas plus hotel and food would be more than the $200 duty...
