The other numbers and letters are there but there's a blank spot where the DOT code should be. I'm not too concerned with it though. Overall I'm quite happy with them. I checked the prices again last night and they've gone up by nearly $100 for the set. Must be because of the new rebates that are out now.
Did you flip over the tire to the other side? I had the same issue. The date code is only on one side.

Read reviews for the tire. It's almost irrelevant what kind of car you're putting them on as long as the size is correct.

We're in 3rd week of Sep and still no rebates for most of the manufactures. Is it still too early?

Looking to pick up a set of Continental VikingContact 7 225/65R17's and rims for my 2019 CX-5. Quattro seems cheapest overall with installation on cheapish alloy rims that match the specs of the car. However, they give you only one choice for TPMS and it costs $52 for my car. I don't understand how a relatively simple device should cost anywhere near $50. Wish Quattro gave us a choice on TPMS devices.

After flipping back and forth I think I'm just going to go with the cheaper Blizzaks from Costco now that they have their $100 cash card back.

The continental set (after installation) are about $20 cheaper but I would rather deal with Costco than a website at this point.

I believe most will start end of September or beg of October

The DM-V2 tires? I was looking at those, they're well reviewed tires. I've never purchased tires from Costco, but do I have to get them installed there? When I add to cart they add the $100 to mount them.

That's not true. There are winter tires that are designed specifically for SUV's and light trucks. The VikingContact7 is not one of those, although it's probably adequate for up to a mid-sized SUV or CUV.

The Sorento is heavy, maybe the Viking Contact 7 is not a good choice for that vehicle....what would be ?

These are the SUV / light truck winter tires I'm referring to. There are several manufacturers offering them.

I guess the thing with CUVs is that they're in between a sedan and SUV, so you have to decided which type of tire is best for you.

Load rating is what you need to look for. I replaced my xi2 for the Viking 7 and the load rating is 106 for the continental vs 103 for the Michelin. As long as the load rating is at least what's recommended by the manufacturer, there is no problem.

I think the equivalents, I only have a hatchback so the Blizzaks I am getting are the WS90.

Installation costs are usually $20 a tire, the bigger ones I guess are $25. I'm not sure how to actually just "buy" them without the install. But unless you can mount them on rims yourself I don't think you'll really beat the install price, I think i's pretty typical.

A bit off topic but my current OEM All Seasons are due for replacement. I have a winter set that I swap seasonally so that's fine. There's a month or two left before switch over to winters.

I noticed some manufacturers have MIRs right now for certain all seasons but or course mostly winters. My question is would it be best to wait for Spring rebates? That's when all the summer/all season tires come out correct? Kind of new to this MIRs and tires. TIA.
