A couple of years ago I bought 4 SE tires at $56 each. The performance is 110,000 km. A mechanic friend said they're good tires.

Balancing is $17.50 for all 4 or per tire. If it's per tire it's a scam. Next they'll sell you 1/2 a tire but you must buy the other 1/2 at the inflated price... anything to make a large number in their ads look small.

ONLY $19.99 plus, shipping, handling, balancing, consultation charge, delivery, smoke break charge, waiting charge = $100 just like the Michelins I buy.

I don't agree. There's nothing wrong with the Motomaster SE. I presume you are not cornering until the tires squeal.

The Falken ZE512 is a nice tire too. Holds the road well, and if you don't plan to keep your car for long they might be just as cheap. They do wear fast though....like twice as fast.

Like a pencil, you don't use tires down to the very end, you always throw the last part out. Something to think about.

Yeah the balancing of 17.50 is pricey. Does anyone have a sugestion of a better deal in the GTA. Have'nt really shopped around yet. Looking at 15's all season that are decent in the Winter.

If I can get something decent for under $100 a tire installed balanced taxes in I'm happy.

Also shop for a set of new tires recently and if the SE costs ~$70 (13") for each, should a BFGoodrich Control Plus ($75 each, also 13" and includes everything except tax) be a better choice ?

I had purchased 4 SE tires for my min-van before. They wear out really fast. It was interesting that one week after I bought the tires, I went back to CT for an oil change. When I picked up the van, they said they also changed 2 of the tires, no charge. They said 2 of the tires were defective, something about the steel belt.

Well, under normal driving conditions, they wore out at around 50,000km. I don't know where they get the 110k km rating is ridiculous.

I bought a set of these tires few years back, using it only for non winter driving.
There were fine during first year or so, but go out of balance quickly as they didn't wear out as evenly as the other premier tires. I saved money on the tires, and but spend on balancing them. $8 per wheel.

On on occasion, I suspected the belt in the tire was shifting and would like to investigate the possibility of warranty claim, learned the hard way that it was cheaper to get them replaced.

In my case, I would stick to Costco for tires. Free balancing for the life time of the tires is unheard of (not that I need them often)

Just my 2 cents

I've bought these before, wet traction is awful. Never had tires that slipped so much so often. I'd spend a little more if possible for something else.

used to use nothing but CT tires as they are decent and price is still good but the extras for mounting, balancing, valve, disposal of old tires etc added a third onto the price(used to be free mounting etc. a decade ago) so went to a local tire store and got a much better inclusive deal with name brand tires

Always ask CT what the total cost will be as they're getting like ontario hydro or bell telephone with a complicated formula.

I bought some Michelins at Walmart in the states recently... $100/tire installed. Saved $50/tire compared to Canadian tire price of $155 for same tire.
