... the house, I just realized I should have responded that the time it takes me to bring the stacked tires in and out of the vehicles is almost 1/3 (or even more) time it takes me to do the changeover. Reason being depending on the vehicle, there's a certain way of loading the tires in the trunk ...

tires

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?

winter tires

Tis the season to start swapping the winters off the cars, but I have a silly question. Would tire suppliers/installers have discounts on last years winter tire inventory going on right now? Or do suppliers ship their extra inventory back to the manufacturer? Or do they order tires per customer to a...

Hi, I live in Burlington. Want to knowing anyone knows any good tire shops in the area.

Tire swapping noob here, I'm about to attempt a swap myself but just wondered if there are other steps I should take while I have a wheel off. I read some people like to put a little anti-seize or grease on the hubs to reduce rust and make future swaps easier, but then I also read of people putting ...

I think it is criminal that they charge PST/GST on top of the eco fees for both tires and batteries ! $3-$5 tire and anywhere from $15-$20/ea automotive batteries. Tax on top of a tax and on top of another tax ...simply ridiculous !

Wondering if there are any good Canadian retailers I can order some wheels from? If not, please share suggestions for good places to get it shipped from the US! I'm mainly looking for Enkei wheels. May also get some tires too if I can get a package deal for cheaper. Thanks!

winter

Just swapped back to the summers yesterday. Taking off the winters got me thinking ahead for next year, and if these are good for another should be replaced. They are model year 2011, one has a puncture and plug near the side, but despite all that they are in great shape. Tread compound is still sof...

rims

not lucky today. My wife hit a pothole and one of the leased bmw 330 tires blew out. called the BMW road assistant but still had to pay 200 buck to tow the car home. The free BMW road assistance only covers towing to the nearest bmw dealer, not home. The dealer won't fix the tires because I just rep...

winter tire

Hi, I want to know per years, how much it usually cost when I change winter tire. I want to know the price difference if I just get winter tire and mount them on the current factory rim, or if I get steel rim + the price to reprogram the sensor every time. Winter tire on OEM Rim : $$ Winter tire + S...

question

I want to swap my winter tires to my summer ones. I am wondering if it matters what tire goes where. I do not mean in terms of threadware because I know the tires with more thread go on the front. I am referring to the direction of the thread of the tire. The winter tires have arrows on them which I...

This is what Costco told me but I can find little information online to confirm, any negative to buying the Costco version of this tire compared to an actual Defender?

wheel

My vehicle is an 06 Audi A3, and my current wheels have an offset of 56. They do seem like they’re very deep into the car, but they are the factory wheels. I was looking at a set of wheels with a 42-46 offset and was wondering if it would cause issues with rubbing. Image attached even though it may ...

Hi there. I'm the primary Costco member and hubby has the spouse card. We want to buy our new tires at Costco. Would it be a problem if I ordered the tires online with my account and then he brings the car in to get installed? Obviously, he'll have his spouse card with him at the time of installatio...

Need rims and tires for the new ride. Looking for suggestions I on what tires and where to get them, live in Burlington

how

... it is. I obviously don't really want to pay $450+ tax (editted, not $350+tax) at Mercedes. I think when this happened, it was right at the edge of 1 year warranty by Pirelli, but not really expecting anything. Should I just go to another tire shop and get them on?

can

Were in my shed for two years. Came from a 2001 Jetta. Just taking up space now and have no use for them as that Jetta was scrapped. What do you think of the condition? All four about the same. I would of course wash them. Thanks for the suggestions.

I'm surprised there doesn't seem to be a thread on coilovers/suspension at all on here? Anyway I'm looking to get a set of KW V1s. While I could get them from the US, there's always the tax and stuff to worry about, I've seen there's some online Canadian parts sellers (tdotperformance is one that co...

Hello, I have a Ford which is due to be returned from lease shortly. When I leased it I was given 4 summer tires with rims and 4 winter tires without rims so 8 tires. Do I have to give both set of tires or only one? I figure if they gave me two sets of tires it means I paid them during my lease, did...

I installed the summers with the ...
