I've been looking around for a while for replacement C5 tires and found some pretty good looking deals at places like Tire Rack, but by the time the exchange, shipping, taxes, brokers' fees etc are figured in, they aren't such great deals after all.

Is there someplace in Canada that sells tires that aren't insanely expensive?

1010tires.com by FAR!!! It's a Canadian site AND it's in BC!!! Your neck of the woods!!! No brokerage fees or anything... Shipping was even pretty cheap to alberta I thought... I actually ended up fiding some tires here locally for the same price but only after haggling with the guy and using the 1010tires.com price to PROVE he was a criminal :)

oh yeah one more thing... I went with the Firestone Wide Ovals for my car and have heard nothing but wicked stuff about them from ALL the research I did AND they were WAYYYYYYY cheaper to start with... In the end I bought a set of 4 Z06 size boots mounted and balanced with tax etc etc for less than $1300... 1010tires.com had them for $1200 shipped I think it was.

I found the website "2koolperformance" and they seem to have good pricing, have not bought from them though.
They are in Ontario.

anytime... like I said... i was pretty surprised by the pricing. Pretty much tirerack.com translated in to CAD $$$ without the brokerage and cheaper shipping
