Are we able to double dip? Get the Costco instant rebate and then the mail in rebate?
In certain cases "no" so better read the fine print. For instance, Pirelli's rebate site specifically states that their rebates excludes Costco, Canadian Tire and online purchases.

How do you guys select new tires? I mean other than sizing, how would I know what is a good fit for my car? Is there some sort of buying guide or do we just randomly pick something from a well known manufacturer and hope for the best?
I saw Consumer Reports used to have a chart that tested a crap load of tires for different conditions. Alas, you need to pay to get access to it. I'm stuck trying to figure out what is a decent tire with good wear life, good on gas and low noise for the warmer months.

My tires are 10 years old, should I be considering one of these deals?

Yes! 10 year old tires are way too old. Like HOLY even cheap China tires are probably safer.

Yes, i just got a car that came with almost 10 year old winter tires.. It had cracks left and right. Not safe at all, i'm pretty sure yours are the same.

Guess they don't look that closely at tires during a safety inspection. Just got the car last month.

Just read the Pirelli PDF, cannot be used if purchased from Costco or Crappy Tire.

Most manufacturer rebates exclude Costco, and sometimes Crappy (or at least Crappy Tire exclusive models like the General Evertrek or Conti TruContact).
Because Costco is given their own run of instant rebates through the manufacturers they don't often run concurrent with everyday retail consumer promotions.

What's the application? Are you in-town/hwy/rural road driver mostly? Commuter? Do you run winter tires?

I am looking for summer tires. I currently drive a 2012 honda civic EX (4 doors). Can anyone help in recommending a good set of summer tires? Looking for a good price and performance.

I've been shopping around in anticipation of this rebate period for a new set of summer tires. i've had my heart set on the michelin pilot super sports... best 3 prices i've seen are Simply Tire, Costco and Joy City. This is for the GTA. I went with Allen's team at Simply, since he's an RFD sponsor and has great client service.
