Replied to your post on the CRVOC forum and saw that you posted here too.

I bought Michelin Latitude X-ice Xi2 tires (235/65R17) and had them mounted on 17" steel rims. Changed them myself this Friday and they are very quiet.

The price I paid was $1,106.00 all taxes included, plus I also get $70 back from Michelin with their winter promo. Went and also got some 17" hubcaps from eBay so they look a little better than just the black steel rims.

Sweet, looks pretty good! I am going to buy the Michelins....however, looks like the steel wheels are on back order. Shit.

I am assuming the costco guys installed the TPMS packages and then you had to do a reset for the TPMS via the settings on the touch screen? (Following the manual)

Does anyone know what hubcentric v.s. universal? Looking at the costco steel wheels list, there are these two options. 2 of the workers at costco didn't know what the difference was...

Just an FYI the Honda steel rims are about $20 more than the Costco ones. Less if you can swing a deal with your local dealer. Costco rims are fine but along with the long waits for installation there I went with the Honda dealer we bought our car from.

I didn't get mine at Costco. They were more expensive than the tire place my family buys their tires. Check tire places first as you will probably get way better prices especially with package deals and paying with cash.

You don't need the TPMS package at all with the 2017 CR-V as the monitoring system doesn't use the valve stems in the tire to monitor as in the previous models. All you need to do is calibrate the TPMS in the settings on the touchscreen.

Go with hub centric steel rims. Hub centric basically means the rims are using the hub to support the weight of the rims, it will fit like OEM rims. Universal rims fit many different vehicles and usually have the weight supported on the wheel studs which is not ideal. Incredible that the tire techs at Costco didn't know the difference....... :rolleyes:

I was just was looking at the Honda websites to see how much they charge...I might fill out a quote and see what the have to offer.

Buying from costco, I was thinking of their warranty.

I closed the deal on a 2018 CR-V this week with delivery end of November/early December.

I shopped at a few dealers in the GTA working to get as close to invoice and best bang for the buck on my trade-in.

This thread helped a lot so thanks to everyone! Now time to shop for winter mats, clear film on hood, rust proof, etc... I'm still thinking about the Honda extended warranty but pricing seems high.

Do the others offer something that Honda does not cover you for?

One thing that stands out is Caa and CT tows you to the location of your choice and up to 250km...something I have to verify for all three services.

Do you have experience with HRA?

Sweet deal. After doing some reading, I'm at 90% sure that I will get some winter tires. I figured this year I wouldn't or I would have gotten winter tires way back before the winter tire rush started. Now I am last minute winter tire shopping, shit.

Thanks for the response! Those X-Ice Xi2 look like they have good reviews!
I bought a new RAV4 FWD for my family in Vancouver a couple months ago.
We didn't want to deal with the hassle of two sets of tires and rims, but wanted winter tire capability.
Instead of snow tires, we opted to put on all weather tires (winter tires meant to be driven all year round) - super popular in Washington, Oregon, Lower Mainland.
Consumer Reports says they're as good as a mid-high end winter tire.

Models include
- Nokian WRG3 (kaltire only), Norman WR (kaltire only as well, basically the WRG2)
- Toyo Celsius
- Goodyear WeatherReady
- Kumho Solus HA31

Hope this help.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I currently have all season mud & snow rated tires on the CRV. However, they aren't the best in winter conditions. Looks like the Michelin Latitude X-ice2 are no longer available through costco. Yikes.

Don't get hung up on tire names. They will change the name to make people think it is something new.

Hi FilaGuy, I am also looking to buy either a 2017 or 2018 CR-V EX. would you like to share your deal with us. how much over the invoice price you paid. Dealer / salesperson, if finance, what was the rate. your Final on the road price.
Please PM me if you like.

Ya, they just came back in stock. I ordered some. However, the rims are back-ordered...although Canadian Tire has some steel rims in stock at a store nearby, so I was considering going to go pick those up.

Also, a Canadian Tire that is in a different town that I am going to this weekend has the Michelin tires in stock at their location. If they are there still, I might pick them up...the Michelin tires are $60 cheaper than Costco + the Canadian Tire money...so I figure if I go that route, I would just take the tires & wheels to Costco and get them to install them.
