Cool - might check Joy City Tires as a comparison next time. Never knew about it and quite close to home.

Thanks. Call came from "private number" and when I answered there was no reply for 2-3 seconds. I was already about to yell "fly off", when nice lady with french accent (from Quebec) informed me what it was about. I was just a second away from embarrassing myself and possibly not getting refund. She emailed me a form with consent and math question, and had to upload invoice that shows tire purchase. That was it.

I feel last year the tire deals were better.. Isn't it?

I didn't buy anything as didn't need winter tires and thought we will have same deals this years November..
Can someone please suggest if this is best deal right now or should I wait for 20 more days?

Also steel wheels are expensive on black circles for my car so wondering if any other website or store has better offer for tires+wheels

What are people's thoughts on the Conti Viking Contact 7's? I got this deal and finally have them installed, but there's a lot of road noise. Almost too much. Is anyone else getting that?

Winter tires in general will be noisier than summer or all seasons. Are you comparing to all seasons or to a previous set of winters on that car?
They're supposed to be good though. On a separate note, I put Goodyear WinterCommand Ultra tires on my wife's RWD Model 3 and they're pretty quiet, which should translate to better efficiency. So far so good in the snow.

Blackcircles price per tire $340.19 after discount + eco fee + tax. Costco would be $419.99 - 20% Labour Day discount + tax. $15 difference in the end. Nothing to cry about.
Since I have brand new rims and TPMS that need to be installed, I'm not even sure Costco would install these tires. Somebody mentioned that they will instill tires if sensors are already on rims, but not if they are separate.

According to Michelin, tires are produced in Hungary, so I fully expect last year's batch in any case.
Oh did you figure it out?
Will costco install new tires on new rims or not?
I thought they would install TPMS and will charge me extra for tpms?
Btw Is tpms really mandatory to install winter tires?
i bought tires and rims both from costco... rims got delivered at home.. tires got delivered at warehouse.

Costco will install new tires on new rims. But they will not install TPMS unless it's theirs (you can't bring your own sensors). Also, they are sometimes picky and will refuse to install tires if they are significantly outside of the specs for the car you are installing on. All in all it's YMMV and you should contact the warehouse that's doing the install.

As for my specific case, the tires are still "temporarily" out of stock at Costco, so ordering from Blackcircles was good move. Not to mention that I won the "win back your purchase" contest from Michelin and tires did not cost me one cent. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than smart.

"But they will not install TPMS unless it's theirs" here by "theirs" you meant tpms or tire? means tires have to be bought from costco or tpms?
In my case i bought both tires and rims from costco... but there was no option to add tpms...
so thats why i asked if costco will install my tires without tpms?
or will costco store have tpms (obviously asking more money for tpms) to install with tires?

great congrats on your buy back prize..

"Theirs" refers to TPMS. If your car requires TPMS they will not install tires on rims without TPMS. They will also not take TPMS you bring. But they will install their TPMS, at additional cost. At least these were all stipulations in the Costco warehouse I frequent. YMMV. It is best to phone your Costco tire centre and ask.
