    Default Canadian (Edmonton) Tire shops...

    Hey hosers...

    Bought my first 4x4 (99 Tahoe) and I'm looking to replace the tires on it. May go to 265's instead of the 245's but will probably keep the stock wheel for now. Not ready for a lift kit just yet but the tires on it will need replacing soon and I'd like to get something that is a good road/trail compromise.

    Anyone here used a Canadian dealer you'd recommend? Any specific to the Edmonton area (or Alberta in General)?

    Cheers

    I've used the Ok Tire there also, got good prices on tires there, also used to work @ Ron Hodgson in St Albert and we were the number 2 dealer in Canada for tire sales and #2 next to costco. I know Costco will not install tires that are not the same size that are coming off, I bought my BFG All Terrain T/A's there.

    I watched a CT tech try to mount a 14" tire on a 15" rim. He was at it for 30 minutes. When I had enough, I told the service manager to have him put the old tires back on my truck. I went to a tire store, and don't use canadian tire for any automotive services.
