[1010Tires] Hot deal on Gislaved Nord*Frost 5 tires at Tire Trends

A flat this weekend made me shop in advance for my next winter tires.

I know that there is a thread for winter tires but since it's now the end of the season for winter tires and the thread wasn't active anymore, I tought it deserves a separate thread.

I found a very hot deal at http://www.tiretrends.com/Winter-Tires- ... tireID=918

They have other brands but considering the price and the quality, their Gislaved are their best deal.

Gislaved Nord*Frost 5 are excellent tires, among the best you can find.

I just ordered 2 sets with no PST (I'm from Quebec)
205/50R17 : $524, shipping and GST included ($112 / tire + shipping)
225/75R16 : $470, shipping and GST included ($98 / tire + shipping)

Price per tire in stock are from $52 to $129.

I spoke to a friend that works at a tire shop, he just bought 16" inch tires and his cost was $155.

I think it worth it to buy in advance for next winter.

Be quick, the winter tires sales was supposed to end yesterday but it has ben extended until February 28.

Note that some people say you should get the freshest-manufactured tires you can because the rubber loses its cold-weather-grippiness over even a few seasons... I'm no expert, just putting it out there.

In fact I meant that I needed 4 tires right now. I was good for the rest of the winter but the flat can't be repaired so I need 4 new tires right now.

Thanks OP. I have the Nord Frost 3 (6th winter) and very happy with them.

What is approximate shipping cost?

I imagine you get them installed/balanced at a local garage. Can you say where (or if not, what neighbourhood)?

i can confirm that.

i have bought few year ago a set of 4 brand new winter toyo garit HT that have 4 years old of manufacture already. they where REALLY REALLY REALLY BAD. the gum was so hard at 0 degres. i had no traction at all at -10.

before that, i had another set of toyo garit HT brand new newly manufatured, work 100%, was very satisfied, thats why i bought another set for my second car, but i did not about the manufactured date. now its the first thing i check on winter tires, then the thread use.

i think on the summer tires, its still important, but less.

how you store the tires have also an effect on the gum longitivity.

I called them last fall when I was looking for snow tires. They do not sell to BC any more, even though they are based here. I bought my last set of tires from them when they were over in Maple Ridge but they said they don't deal locally now.

Too bad for them. I went somewhere else.

For both of my purchase, shipping was 11.50 $ and 13 $ per tire, which is very reasonnable.

Yes I'll have them installed and balanced at a small local shop. About 12-18 $ / tire I assume.

Thanked.

Early bird special for 205/55/16 was $590 installed from GFT and T23

This worked out to be $455.21 shipped. Add $50 for installation at my mech.

Great tires. These are comparable to Hakka 5's but at half the cost. I've done a few winter Auto-X'es in my (studded) set and just drove on a frozen lake yesterday with them hehehe... Between now and early-mid summer is the best time to get winters when retailers are clearing them out (and to beat the rush as well).

+1 I have nordfrost 3 and 4's on my car (ripped one of my 3's after first year and had to switch on a pair of 4's). this will be my third winter now with them. love them. very confident in them even with 15 cm of fresh snow on the ground.
