Where to buy Used Winter Tires within the GTA?

Hey, so I'm looking for used winter tires and my summer tire size is 225/45 17". I called so many locations today in Mississauga, Brampton and Vaughan... but almost no location has 225/45 17 in stock.
I'm looking for a full set of 4 (4 tires). Tried calling locations such as Noble Tire, Tire World, Ray's Tire Depot, Car Kraze, Brampton Tire Discounter, Bramalea Tire, Z Racing, Kal Tire, New Millenium. Also tried looking for sellers/shops on Kijiji, and nobody had a set of 4 tires. Don't want to pay for new tires since it's a 2003 car, just need to get through the next one or two winters. Plus, my car is a RWD so I need tires with good tread.

Anyone know a shop that still has the 225/45 17's in stock?

Wrong season for buying decent used snow tires. They are pricey in the GTA.

Brand new tier 3 tires (no name Chinese brand) might be cheaper/ better

Yeah you're right, especially since apparently I have low profile tires. Almost nobody seems to have a full set of 4 tires. But thank you.

Find out what 16" tires you can fit on your car and look for that size you may have better luck finding used.

He would need to buy a set of 16 inch rims too.

He would be better off getting a set of new 17 inch Hercules winter tires. These were just over $100 per tire at 1010tires.com

Ended up getting used winter claws for my 17" at $420 installed.
I was looking at rims with winter tires too for 16", but they were pretty pricey. Found used tires for $200 and such but the tread was bad.
These have about 80% life on them, so I'm good. A little pricey for used but low profile is hard to find.

Any examples of this or where I can purchase these? Pardon my ignorance this is the first time I'm looking to purchase winter tires.

Tires23, Simply Tire, Joy City

There's also places that advertise new no name tires in Kijiji like Discount Tire.
