Are Motomaster tires any good?

I'm in need of a new set of all-seasons and am seeing a decent deal at Canadian Tire.
Just wondering if you had any experience with Motomaster?
Worth buying or should I spent a bit more to buy a name brand?

Go for it. Motomaster tires are not made by CT, depending on the type, could be made by Goodyear, Michelin and BFG.

Also, make sure you check out the BST, normally tires there too or kijiji.

They are better then old tires for sure. Double check the date stamp and make sure they are fresh before buying.

Keep in mind at CT you may have to pay extra for install and not sure if your price includes taxes already.
You can get an all inclusive quote from Tires23 or before tax and enviro fee at simply tires or online at Quattro tires for before tax and shipping prices.
Who knows you may get some falkens,Kumho, fuzions at he same price point.

I sort of gave up on SimplyTires because they literally never answer their phones but will give Tires23 a try, thanks. Thanks.

Why would you? It costs too much.

I just quoted the Defender LTX M/S I am looking at getting from Tire Rack. $1370 to my door, and they still need to be mounted and balanced. So looking at another $300 or so on top of that.

Northumberland Tire Craft in Port Hope can have them on my vehicle for Under $1300.

It's well worth it if you can pick it up across the border. My high performance tires are $400+ CAD, and $180 USD each, not to mention $100USD for alloy rims. Bought new winter tires/rims for my wife's Q5 for $1045USD vs $2500+CAD. I bring them over duty free when a family member goes for vacation there.

If you're shipping to Canada and paying duty/broker/tax then not worth it.

Right., but considering not everyone lives near the boarder or have family that goes south, this doesn't seem like an option for the masses of Canadians though.

I didn't say it was worth it for everyone, but many Canadians live within about an hour of the US border. Even if you don't know someone, you ship to a shop and they install for you. The more expensive your tires the more it's worth it.
