Interested in the details as well... although I think I'll go with pure summer rubber instead this year.

Edit: Answered the exact minute I asked. Tx.

doing my homework on tires and a tire is more than just a tire my friends....ya, you can find the cheapest tire and slap it on your car....but quality is number one. you have to check out the specs, ratings and overall usage of the tire.

you have to look at:
the make
the UTQG rating
tread ware rating
traction rating
temperature rating
speed rating
and type (weather wise)

if you drive a goolie or a sundance ... then motomasters would be fine, otherwise, invest wisely.i learnt my lesson.

haha, but that depends when and how long you drive your car for...example:
i drive my car all year because i cannot afford a beater, so i have to change from winter rubber to a summer rubber as the seasons roll. now, my winters go on when i hear the weather girl say it will snow tomorrow. BUT when spring rolls around....it snows, it doesnt snow, its gets warm, it stays cool....its for this type of weather mixture that i reccomend a High Performance All Season tire...dont let the "all season" fool you. summer rubbers are good sor warm weather only, if they get caught up in this weather mix, the compound of your rubber is not made for it. they will not function properly and you could wear them out quicker.

Haha, yeah well I know what you mean about the stupid seasons and how they never really change definitely--that is a pain. I do drive my car year 'round, but I have winter wheels and tyres and summer wheels and tyres.

The winter I use stock 15" steel wheels on Motomaster Nordic IceTrack tyres (mfg. by BF Goodrich/Michelin), summer time its 17" aluminum on BF Goodrich G-Force T/A KDW tyres.

There are indeed some good all season tyres, they are a bit pricey (not that high performance summer tyres aren't more expensive a lot of the time, but they are worth it to me anyway). However all seasons are a compromise at best. Convenient, yes but if you think about it cost wise, it isn't much different (over time) because your tyres only wear for part of the year, and the winter tyres take over for the other part of the year. You have two sets of tyres but they last twice as long together, and the performance benefits are worth it IMO.

As for getting caught out in the wrong weather, yeah got caught in a light snow/ice on the G-Force T/As and I could barely control the car at all! In the dry they hold the road like *glue*, in the wet they are very good, in the snow? lol forget about it you might as well be on a sled hahaha... Evenso, a quick switch over to winter tyres and you're getting better winter safety than all-seasons.

Anyhow, good guide on the tyre selection too, hopefully people will make use of it!

That said, the Touring LXR Motomaster isn't a bad tire, for an all-season. Made by Michelin/BF Goodrich, good treadwear warranty and cheap price. It's the best tyre of the group there anyway. Certainly cheaper than a $250+/tyre G-Force T/A...

Remember to add $14 for balancing and $2.50 for disposal.

Yes you are right, you should choose your tires with care.
As for the Motomaster tires candian tire does not make there own tires, they get another tire maker to make them. I heared from a friend who use to work at [rfdlink=http://forums.redflagdeals.com/autolink ... ?linkid=24]canadian tire[/rfdlink] that some brands of motomaster tires are made by michelin. look at the thread they are the same..

You can tell them to mount them for you (free) without balancing and dispose the tire at your city's depot. Also don't forget to tell them to install new tire valves for free.

Then you take the tires somewhere like Costco for balancing for $5 per tire.

Saving of 11.5 + tax per tire, total --> $52.9.

I've had the Motomaster SE's on for a couple of years. First year I had them on for winter as well, and expectedly they underperformed. I decided to invest in a set of winter tires last year and driving became appreciably safer and less scary.
The tires themselves are fine for their price. However, looking back I should have invested more on slightly better tires. They are michelin's old design, so you can expect a minimum level of quality. But for incremental costs, I believe you can get better drivability on wet roads, better high-speed stability, and more durable thread wear than these Motomasters.
Just my 2 cents, hope it helps.

I seriously doubt that they will install them and let your car out of the shop WITHOUT balancing them. That could be a safety issue. :!:

I called my local CT and they said add $20 per tire for installation, balance, etc.
