First time buying winter tires, not sure if some of these questions have been answered (48 page is a long read!).
Car is a 2015 Honda Odyssey.
  1. What are good tires for Vancouver with a 2-3 trips up to Whistler?
  2. Should I buy one size smaller (cheaper)?
  3. Do most of you buy rims as well?
First time buyer for me as well but here is what i did. (2014 Ody)
1. Bought 235/65R17 Blizzak WS80 104H. Heard WS80 is good for GVRD weather
2. Was thinking of buying one size smaller but the dealer recommended me to go with stock size (due to brake clearance, speedometer issue) I could be wrong any expert can chime in on this.
3. Rims are strongly recommended c/w tpms sensor. Unless you don't mind to see TMPS sensor light is on all the time. Costco don't carry 17" steel rims for 2014 ody. My dealer quoted me $110 per wheel and i decided not to use steel rim this winter and wait for the alloy wheel goes for sale for all season (also save money re-use tmps sensor) My all season tires are almost same price as steel wheels.

Blizzak ws80
My take on reading this thread and Costco's website: Michelin's are currently on sale until Dec 3, then Bridgestone is going on sale Dec 4th. So you should wait until the 4th if you want the blizzaks.

Thanks, I am not clear if the wait is to receive another $70 on top of current $70 that is being offered

The $70 MIR for the VISA giftcard (from the OP) is not eligible for costco or online purchases. So no, you're best bet is to wait until Dec 4th and buy them then if you want them from Costco.

Here's the details:
"The Visa prepaid card is issued by Peoples Trust Company pursuant to a license by Visa Int. *Trademark of Visa International Service Association and used under licence by Peoples Trust Company. No cash access or recurring payments. Card valid for up to 6 months; unused funds will be forfeited at midnight EST the last day of the month of the valid thru date. Card terms and conditions apply, seeMyPrepaidCenter.com/site/visa-univ-can.

** Claim form required. Limit 1 reward per each set of 4 eligible tires purchased; limit 3 rewards per household, customer or address. For eligible tires and complete details, see your participating Bridgestone retailer or BridgestoneTire.ca. Eligible tires must be purchased in store from a participating Bridgestone retailer’s inventory October 15-December 15, 2017. Offer excludes Costco and online purchases. Cannot be combined with any other offer."

canadian tire cares both lug centric and hub centric steel wheels. one of the listed for your car may be lug centric (usually the cheaper one). its not apparent on the website which one is which but you should always go for the hubcentric wheels. You will need to call or go in store and ask. i bought my steel wheels from costco and it was cheaper than canadian tire. you might want to look up their website. you do not need to be a member to buy steel wheels from them and they ship to your house.
Thanks. So when looking at Costco, are the hubcentric or universal better?

I purchased Alloy wheels from Canadian Tire

http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/rssw- ... 662790#srp

Does Alloy wheels also have hubcentric?
its not impossible but just more rare. usually alloy rims are designed with a big bore to accommodate as many different vehicles/brands as possible. you can get hubcentric rings to make it fit better on your vehicle

Hi,

Question for you all. I bought a Subaru Outback 2017 this year and am looking for winter tires. My all-season tires are 225/65r17 right now, and I would like to purchase Michelin Xi3. Costco suggests 225/60r18 since Xi3's are not available in 17'. If I want 17' I have to settle for Xi2 which from what I read, are inferior. Is it ok to go up a size? I checked online and the odometer difference seems minimal.. What would you guys do?
Thanks

Go for it. If you can find 18" rims that fit your vehicle 225/60r18 is the closest you'll get to 225/65r17 in available Xi3 sizing. It's only 0.4% taller which is perfectly fine.
