How to know i'm not being ripped off on winter tires?

I drive a Chevy Malibu 2011 and i'm not sure exactly what type of winter tires to buy (New/Used), Brand, who to buy it from, how much it costs, etc.
I've had my car for less than one year and only had to take it for oil changes and once had my mechanic check my brakes, car's in good shape according to my mechanic.
Should i go to the chevy dealership or dealership where I purchased my car or take it to my mechanic and get his advice?
Any advice would be much appreciated!

Shop around and get prices. (Tires + installation) There are plenty tire shop around. Dont go to dealership, they will charge you much more.

You can do your reserach from tirerack. Then ask qoute around.

Costco, simplytire are good start.

Go to simplytire, they'll take care of you.

You dont want to go to the stealership. They'll sell you on things you dont need.

Simply tire has some pretty competitive prices. I would use them as a benchmark.

Easy. You know you're being ripped off on winter tires every single time you buy winter tires.

Prices are higher just before winter, which is normal. Waiting last moment, and complains for prices.

Google tire shops around your area and ask for a quote
