it was crazy at all the wal-marts in sauga today. Kept seeing the same faces trying to score tires at different locations. Unfortunately most of the popular sizes were hard to find especially in Dunlops.

Just regular P rated 245/75R16's

I called a couple that carry tires but none in that size of comparable.
If you are in Ontario or Quebec, you can try http://www.discountsontires.com They are near Montreal. Shipping to Ontario or Quebec is relatively cheap. They have good prices on tires. Shipping out west is outrageous however. Their site is having issues right now. Once the site is back in order, check what they have. 3 years ago, I had paid about $166/tire at my door from another Montreal tire dealer (4 General Altimax Arctic P245/75-16).

These are rated as *Very Good* by the APA winter tire guide: http://www.apa.ca/WinterTires2012-PassengerCars.asp
I got the Dunlops installed today and I must say I disagree with those ratings. My old Nord*Frosts destroyed these tires in term of performance on my civic. The Dunlops don't seem to stick very well at all under hard breaking and accelerating. The do stick VERY well laterally though, and break pretty traction predictably. They have good transmission of 'feel' over all. Also they are almost all season quiet, but a rougher ride. Seem like they will do good for dry highway and everyday city since the roads are mostly clear here in Ottawa 80% of the time, and when they aren't, I reduce my speeds anyhow.

Are the Dunlop you bought Winter Tires? I'm looking to get set Dunlop set as well but I can't find it.
Which WM did you find Dunlops? I don't see it online. I called Oakville and they say Dunlops are regular priced.
Ottawa walmart, south keys. 58.18 a tire in 185 65 14.

All the reviews are stellar but I can't get them to stick to anything. The all season tires I had on the car before stuck better than the ds3's.

I'm a huge fan of my nexen tires. I'm pretty amazed at how good they are.
I agree. My Michelin harmony all seasons which are worn about 50% are only about 20% worse in stop and go. I find the major difference is that my car doesn't slide as much - or at all now really - if I take corners too fast for the conditions. Over all I'd say they enhanced my safety over 50%. I do wish I had got the Marshalls though as I can't help but feel the more agressive pattern would perform a lot better (of course with the obvious trade-offs associated with such a tire).

I probably just should have bought a used pair of General Altimax Artics for 100$ already on rims on kijiji locally that had more than half thread left and included free delivery. Would have been 250$ cheaper and likely been as good as these dunlops. Oh well :D

I picked up a set of the Dunlops yesterday at Walmart in Kitchener at Fairview park mall. For my Elantra Touring. 65.87 per tire. Since this is raWalmart sale I think the Mail in rebate should work as it does not not an Instant rebate was applied.
So far so good, much better than the kumho souls I was running, which I hated since I bought inJuly.
They were out of my exact size of 195/65r/15 so I dropped to the slightly lower profile they had in stock of 195/60/15

Any chance to get some 215/40/17? Or is it pretty much for all those who drive civics and corollas with the 15s :p

I love a good used purchase as much as the next guy, and maybe it's the Dad in me talking but unless you know who you're buying from, used tires always seem like such a safety gamble I could never justify the risk reward

Hey guys, if your WM doesn't have your tire size in stock, maybe they could print you an invoice, which you can then use to pricematch at Canadian Tire? I think you could then even apply the rebate too.

Sorry to hear that. Maybe I should try and return mine before they get installed? :cheesygri How are they in snow/slush though? They will be going on my mom's new Kia Rio, so racecar performance isn't a priority as opposed to grip in the snow.

I went to Agincourt Mall in scarborough yesterday (27th) and asked for the same Dunlop tires as OP mentioned the guy told me its regular price? 135.xx. Asked him about the clearance price and he said its for selected tires only and he said the priced was only good for the 26th. I didn't bother arguing and just got 4 of them at regular price + EHF (came up to $550ish...) Hopefully will get the price adjusted soon if I can prove to the technician that he was wrong?
