so far i've been to "costco" (less selection but go service and warrenty coverage and nitrogen filled tires) and "eastern canada tire" hastings and comercial (looks pretty shaddy operation, i doubpt they have any warrenty on the tires)

A few months ago, we were talking about what would be the best "overall" tires for the TSX -- i.e. better performance without sacrificing ride or longevity or MPG. Our guy SJLee suggested Continentals (I think other people agreed), and he seemed to have good facts behind what he was saying. At the time, they cost something like $90 each.

Cost isn't necessarily the main thing for me about tires, but even so, those are what I'm planning to get for my car, probably within the next few months.

Here's a search that will give you some of those old threads on tires:

i think falken is pretty good for what you pay for.

yeah... go to that "naam fong" on hasting, good price. But, don't let them put the tires on for u if u have nice rims, unless the boss is doing it himself. The workers there can scratch ur rims pretty well. :rofl:

my friend use to put on tires all the time, he said it's not possible to scratch rims using a machine to help put them on, they never touch the face of your rims, and does is matter if they scratch the inside? i dunno? :donno:

where you recomend to mount them?

which kumo tire is good?

depends on the profile... if 18" for our car, just the machine alone is not gonna do it. (unless it is a super expensive one, but I don't know which tire shop has it locally).

Teamwork is pretty good. at least they did not scatch the lip of my wheels :)
and yes, u are right, they usually scratch only the inside, but also the lip if it is hard to install.
