Best place for aggressive pricing on tires...

Hello team!

I am shopping around for pricing for Continental Conti4x4SportContact tires for my Range Rover Sport. I need 275/40/R20s....

I have been quoted between $360-499 per tire..... the range is absurd and I KNOW a couple of shops were attempting to gauge me based on the fact that I rolled into the parking lot driving my car.....

Where would you guys advise I go? I have reached out without luck to some of the site's sponsors without getting response...

I only need TWO tires.... any ideas guys?

I say across the border too. If your tires are bad just switcharoo them over there.

I'm really shocked at the delta between tire prices in Canada and the US. I understand pricing distinctions in many categories due to scales of economy and how densely populated the US is .... but the difference in tire pricing is absurd.

I always buy my tires from the states. Get them delivered to a parcel service across the border, and save LOTS of money.
