way more vibration through the steering wheel and body of the car than I was last week with my 18" all-seasons.

I am not looking forward to having to call them back.

(And yes, I re-torqued the wheels the day after they were installed.)
Based on personal experience and what I’ve read, the Hakka R2 is a very difficult tire to balance correctly.

I purchased my car used from Craigslist. The rims are wheel locked and the seller never gave me the key.
Can Costco or other places take off the tire or do I have to go back to Honda to get them removed?
Think you can get the wheel lock piece through the dealership. Keep it safe!

Still gonna call them back. I didn't pay $100 for installation and balancing only for them to do a shit job of it.

My Nissan dealer suggested firestone winterforce 2 with rim and installed for$900 plus taxes. This is for my nissan altima. Is this good tyres?

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.
Where are you getting the info that the Bridgestone is going on sale in December? Are you sure, or speculating? Thanks,

Happened to me too and I had to go to a Dealer to get it removed. Costco couldn't

I ordered those for my Accord. Don't have them on yet, so I can't comment personally, but the reviews are quite good. They are in lot of the 10 best tire type lists and seem to be very good bang for buck, much like the General Altimax Arctic (which I had on my last car and can vouch for).

Not quite as good as say an X-Ice or Blizzak, but not nearly as expensive either.

That's just the word in this thread. No idea if there's proof, or just speculation.

I booked an appointment with Costco to change my all season tires with new winter tires on Dec 4th. I am driving Honda odessey 2017 Ex, and I want to buy Ws80. Would it be possible for me to buy WS80 on Dec 4th? Or do I need to buy the tire through online on Dec 4th and wait for 1 or 2 weeks for Ws80 to arrive and book an appointment again?

100% expect you to. Heck I went back three times before they got it right.

Wow that would be something I would expect from CDN Tire who hires highschoolers, but not from Costco as everyone raves about them. Does Costco hire the same inexperienced people too?

I got mine installed at Kal Tire; they're one of only two places that carries Nokian in the GTA.

I think you have to buy them first or make sure they are in stock. I thought I remember they said they only install tires you buy from them
