I tried to get Active Green and Ross to price match Canadian tire but they wouldn't saying non stock item. I have decided on the Winter contact Si because I believe it wont be as noisy as some of the more aggressive tread ... how is noise on Sonata?

Seriously?
LOL

I wouldn't be considering it if people weren't saying the smaller tire was actually better for winter driving since it is narrower. I also get more choice for the type of tire.... otherwise, 65 isn't a big deal.

I'm curious which side you fall on? You would keep the original tire size? Or you would get the tire that is supposed to be better for winter driving since it's narrower?

Not installed yet. Reviews indicate the Continental SI should have longer tread life and less road noise than Bridgestone Ws80s or Dm-V2 tires.

Extremely quiet on my Sonata. Bit the bullet and got winter tires this year. Went with Winter contact SI due to significant discounts (I'll post what I did later), tires were extremely quiet. WIth the (heater) fan on, I couldn't tell the difference between my previous all-seasons and wintercontact SI. If I switch fan off, there is a very slight increase in noise. I must say I'm happy with my purchase!

I'll still drive carefully in the winter but it won't be with the nerve-wracking grip on my steering wheel as I wonder if I could stop in time at junctions when the traffic light turns red.

OK thanks that's exactly what i was hoping for from the continentals in terms of noise ... I also feel confident in the safety aspect and should suit our driving need, lots of highway 70 k round trip late evening so very little traffic .

I will definitely try to line up for walk-in once my tires arrive, but the lady told me people line up 5AM... hopefully that is not true.
Thanks for the upvote! 😁

Smaller - Its cheaper and better for winter driving. The downsides are negligible.

Any of you that own blizzaks drive long commutes to work? I have been reading some reviews and most are saying xice has better fuel efficiency.

You are correct. I've have the blizzaks And the x ice. Michelin feel more like an all season tire in overall drive while Bridgestone is a more grippy winter tire. If you live in the city where roads get plowed quick, get the x ice since they'll be quieter and ice is a bigger concern in the city. If you live in a rural area get the bridgestones as they will help you "plow" through the snow better, but again, you get the noise and feeling that your driving a winter tire
Consumer reports ranks the Xice superior to the Blizzak... take it for what it’s worth

I have been trying but they kept refusing, asking for a official printed quote from costco. Costco refuses to print me one, just a handwritten note of the price.

Current Online price showing $136.47 each, should I assume on December 04, price will go up $149.99 each -$70 instant rebate?
Costco already did their rebate on Bridgestone back in September/beginning of October

I can bet my life that the price is going to jump december 16 and onwards.

That's my feeling that price will jump around rebate time. I think retailers are free to set their own prices.
Tiberius in his previous post had a good price on Continental tires from Canadian Tires that I would prefer: Tiberius, what size of tires you purchased?
I got the DM-V2 225/65r17 back in oct when they have had the rebate. it was 149.99 each and then 70 taken out from the total. right now (outside of the rebate timeframe) it is still 149.99. so, i have to disagree with you.

I'm thinking about ordering the Yokohama IG51V from Active, Green and Ross. Although I wanted a set of the WS80 from Costco come Dec 4, I'm pretty deflated about the inability to book appointments and imagine trying to get an install done there is going to be a nightmare.

Bridgestone rebate is over at Costco but other retailers offering rebate, Costco will bring back BS rebate on Dec.4, Not in all cases prices remains same before or after rebate period. WS80 (205/55R16) had a price of $149.99 in Sept., now its $136.47, just the price lowered to compete with other retailers who are offering $70 rebate.
