I have no doubt the Blizzaks are better deep snow and ice tire but Xice Snow is a better all around tire. Xice Snow perform well on wet and dry roads for a snow tire (important since I live in Vancouver) and have decent treadwear for a premium snow tire.
Blizzaks have been my go to since the WS-60. Amazing for deep snow but the multi-compound always bugged me that after 60% it became useless.

I still have an old set of WS-60s for my STi somewhere. WS-90s are an improvement (as driven in other's cars) but still feel squishy and loud on dry road.

I agree X-Ice from my experience is a way better dry/cold tire for us in 604. It's just overall more pleasant and worked very well when friends have used it going up to the interior during the snowy season.

Called into blackcirlces customer service to cancel my order...tires already shipped via Fedex...offered me a cancel fee of $15 per tire to stop the shipment, to which I declined and said I'll refuse delivery instead.

See how the rest of the situation plays out.
Where did you find the deal on the Michelins?

I'll check the manufacturing date when I pick them up, but I'd be surprised if they are very old since this is a fairly common size. Even if they date back to 2019, I'll be taking them at this price.

Canadian tire clearance as posted on the previous page of this thread.

A set of Michelin's for $220 cheaper than Vikings from black circles in my case.

The charge went through for my online order, but I will not accept anything less than a full refund if I am not happy with the tires when I see them.

The tire guy at Canadian tire said they sell tires within 5 years from manufacture date.

Good thing about buying at CT you can check the tire and check the date if the tire is 5 years old I would definitely not buy no matter what they tell you 2018/2019 okay but I would not go any later than that on a "new" tire.

The 5 year warranty of CT for having them install your tires is a 40% success rate for the customer. I had mine done at CT with one of their flagship tires the Continental Truecontact Tires and when time came to claim warranty, man, it's a PiA. After a fight, they were forced to replace my set of 4 tires. My warranty was 1 mo away from expiration yet the Tires were just under 5 years with about 90K of 144K/7yrs on spec. They had to replace because I had a valid claim, the tires were cracking/belt shifted/buckled and dangerous to use. I'm just waiting for my credit card in the mail to buy a set of winter tires from blackcircle.

Probably because larger tire size i guess. No one can beat blackcircle pricing though, called all the local shops.

I also called one of the approved installers and asked about their install price, apparently they still charge a fee to install it(even if paying for install package from blackcircles) so it's cheaper to have it shipped to home and brought to store and pay their installation fee(which ended up being cheaper than blackcircles fee by $20).
Odd - this is definitely a red flag. I just called my installer (hi tech performance auto in burnaby) and they advised no additional charges, all installation etc was paid through Blackcircles.

my criticism of the XIce has always been, they weren't that great if the snow is loose and powdery, the type you get stuck in. Hopefully XIce Snow is better for that. XIce were always great when the snow is hard packed or slushy.

Mostly, you won't wrong with any of the brand name tires. Tire makers all have extensive testing capabilities and probably benchmark their competitors.

I'm partial to Nokians and they never did me wrong, but you pay a premium.

I don't know if this is the answer but we confirmed my appt via Blackcircles. Not sure if your conversation held the same and/or they misunderstood and thought you were bringing in your own tires/rims to get mounted.

Just guessing but could be the size of the tires. Larger tires more money that is the case now for many/all tire shops in GVRD. Could be why the guy with the 19s were told there is additional cost.
