winter tires

Hey everyone, Its that time of the year for swapping winter tires with all-season. I have a Toyota Highlander, and my winter tires are on steel donuts and all-season on factory wheels. I'm assuming its going to be a simple remove, and replace job as I've done before, however, my only question is sin...

tire

My experiences are limited to the Etobicoke location but I'm wondering if all Costco Tire Centres are as bad as that location. Besides the usual chaos about appointments or lack of them, every time I go there I see customers being abused or misinformed by (some of) the staff. Yesterday, a guy with p...

Hi. I only noticed this yesterday as I was loading car for cottage. That's before I even started loading all my gear. As you can see, rear right tire is way closer to the wheel well than the rest of my tires. Any idea why this might be? I'm actually getting all seasons put on next week I hope. My br...

rims

Hi Everyone, I have two sets of rims and tires both the same RIMS as the original XT rims. Today I took off my winters and noticed that there are these 6 dot indentations and scratches on the inside rim. Just wondering what these could be caused from? They are on all 4 of my rims all spaced out thro...

buying

As our beater cars are getting older, throwing $500-800 for a new set of tires is not so cost effective, especially if you won't be keeping the car for much longer. Used tires may sometimes represent a better deal, but buyer beware, you really have to know what to look for. I picked up a set of used...

need

After a "shady" issue with one of the employees at my local Dodge Dealership when shopping for new tires, the manager has corrected the employees not-so-honest behaviour. I appreciate that. In addition, he has offered me to purchase new tires at their cost with free installation and balance. The onl...

So membership, here's the story and I wanted to start thread. Tuesday coming home from work, I start to feel and hear what to me seems like a flat tire. My winter tires are only 2 years old. I wasn't far from home, 5mins, and said I'm not stopping to change it. Sure enough the tire was flat. Ok, put...

I am shopping for a set of new tires, and my first stop was Costco. Found the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S for $162.99 there (seems to be the cheapest as they have other expensive models online) and they said appointments could take 2 weeks to a month. So, I checked out the Canadian Tire website and fou...

good

I have a 2015 Honda Accord LX. Just looking to see if anybody knew of any good places that can swap out my winters and put my spring tires on and do a balance or alignment if needed. For a good price, of course. Any insight/opinions/recommendations is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

rim

I went for a balancing at costco, and apparently my rim is bent. Obviously they can't do much, so I'm wondering if it makes sense or is even possible for me to get it fixed? I don't see any giant bend and the rim is almost new so I'd like to see if theres anything i can do before fully replacing it?...

what

When exactly is the best time to buy summer or all season tires when switching from winters. Do stores compete around spring or do they take advantage of people. I have winters on factory alloy rims which was what I got when I bought the truck. I have worn all season tires not on rims and winter rim...

canadian tire

I just purchased a set of tires from Canadian Tire , and they suggested me to buy the Replacement Advantage which is $10 per tire. I think it sounds reasonable for the 5 years coverage. When I got home to read the details, it says it includes free installation. However, they charged me tire balancin...

So I bought a new aftermarket rims for my all seasons with aftermarket sensors from costco. Costco installs the sensors on the new rims, then few miles later the tpms light started blinking 20-30 times then stays solid. So I went back to costco and they told me nissan dealership needs to re program ...

question

Hello all, I recently balanced all my winters. I just noticed on one of the wheels, the old rusty weights are still on the rim. I was surprised as I thought all the old weights would be stripped and new one would be put on. The reason that I know the wheels needed balancing was because a strip of ol...

winter tire

Looking to get winter tires installed from Costco. My buddy who got it done last year said he got $100 rebate and free installation ($15 per tire). I've been looking online but don't see any additional discounts like this. Currently, for a set of Bridgestone WS80 it quotes me $130+$15+$3.55 per tire...
