Making this post as I previously bought winter tires in August from blackcircles and it turned out to be the best time of the year for it, even though manufacturer rebates weren’t out yet.

Blackcircles has a new special 10% off code for Michelin X-Ice Snow and Continental Viking Contact 7 – VIPCIRCLE2021. These are the top winter tires for performance, and the Michelins are largely made in Canada. To enter the code, add 4 tires to your cart, delete whatever code is in there and use this instead.

The reality is tire makers often raise prices early fall that negate the rebates, it’s a classic move. COVID has added a whole other set of logistical and supply chain issues on top of that, and tires are going up in price quickly. On top of that, the noted supply chain issues are likely to cause tire shortages this fall. So the time to buy appears to be now. Michelin just announced a price increase of 8% for Sept 1 and I heard it’s in the works for other manufacturers too: https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/m ... 48697.html

Comparison of X-ICE Snow for 2020 RAV4 Limited (since RAV4 is Canada's best selling car) shows blackcircles is 23% cheaper:

Another comparison to Costco below shows a set of X-Ice Snows I picked is about 14% less expensive at blackcircles.
Happy shopping fellow drivers.

Purchasing through Blackcircles is a bit of a headache. At least it was when I purchased snowtires in 2019. The install ended up getting cancelled last minute because the shop dealing with them didn't want to anymore. Seems like they have some improving to do with the local shops who do the installations. Either way, got the tires and rims from them for my Rav4. The VikingContact 7 tires are awesome. Would recommend!

I got VikingContact7s from them as well for my Q7.

Had no issues at all with that order or the other one I've made. They've been great. Plus, Canadian company.

Sounds like your shop was displeased about something and made a fuss!

Those vikings grip amazing in winter.

I had amazing experience with Blackcircles back in spring 2020.
Ordered Continental PureContact and received them in 2-3 days after, delivered fast and price was great.
Supplied tires were freshly manufactured. Awesome

Perhaps. Or they have made their process better since 2019. I think they were newer in Canada (or at least in BC) at the time, so maybe just setting up relationships etc. Eitherway, I did get my tires. They were an excellent price and would buy again.

Yeah, that's true. I think they are a fairly new company. Probably smoother in more recent times, with more established relationships etc.

i've been tracking the x-ice snow on costco for a while. they often have $100 cash card offer (equivalent to $100 off given how much our family typically spends at costco) so price works out to be the same as this but with installation and the peace of mind of fixing nail holes for free for the life of the tires (living in montreal, ive needed the service at least once a year every year for the last 7 years).
she may be payin for dinner, but i'll be earnin it later!

Just to be clear, they charge $80 for installation, so it's not included, but I think you are talking about a convenience factor? All good.

And in two weeks the price of Michelins is going up, there is no cash back offer with Costco at the moment, it is the start of winter tire buying season, and if they ever have one it will likely be after the price increase. Plus if you want Vikings they don't carry them. So I think it's pretty valid to post this deal! But fair points :).

Costco prices are slightly higher to include balance and rotation post purchase.

My 2017 Nissan Murano will need a set of new tires by October according to the dealership when i brought it in around April. About, 60k on original tires. I'm thinking of having a set of dedicated winter set as I have 2 toddlers for peace of mind for the whole family when driving around winter time. I know Vancouver area doesn't really get harsh winter climate but still, safety issue for us and vehicles around as well.

Is it ok to buy this now, and have it installed by October? Just wondering if they will have it cheaper or a sale around that time.

Buy now b4 prices go up, install later if anything, usually it's the best time to buy tires at the end of the season as they are clearing them out.

Since price gonna increase, no pt of waiting for the rebate up to $100, the $100 would only cover the price increase, so u end up losing out in the end

id seriously consider the cross climate2 tires. i live in vancouver as well and im getting rid of my xice tires and stock all seasons for the cross climate2s. the reviews are great and it seems perfect for our vancouver weather. we get more rain than snow in the winter and my xice tires arent great in the rain

Correct, but you will have unlimited balance and rotations post purchase as long as your Costco tires are linked to your car.

Replace winter tires at 6/32 or run them one more season......that's the question.

Do the cross climate 2s qualify to insurance companies as running winter tires?

I checked with TD and it doesn't not; so do check with your company as well.
