I bought a set of 4 used tires for 60 dollars and then I bought my tires from tirerack.com had it shipped to a recommended installer (KNIGHT AUTOMOTIVE BUICK, PLATTSBURGH, NY 12901). I drove to Plattsburgh which was only an hour away from Montreal. I installed my tires at that location and threw out my old ones to avoid any duty fee at the border. It cost me 90 US$ to install the tires there. From this experience I've learned that you should pick up your tires at that location and have it installed at another local shop nearby. It would be alot cheaper.
BTW I've ordered from 1010tires before. I saved 300$ more going across the border. I went on the black friday weekend so I had an excuse to go across the border. You might need to think of a good excuse without them suspecting you going there for tires. I wouldn't go to ST-Albans because a friend of mine got charged at the border along with a few other people and had to pay extra 15% Canada tax.
