[Canadian Tire] Clearance deals on Winter Tires Michelin, Conti, Motomaster, Hankook

Canadian tire currently has clearance deals on winter tires. Several brands are discounted by up to 30% off.

For example Michelin latitude 225-65-17 is for $145/tire, while it’s going around $190/tire at other places.

UPDATE: It appears the contis are no longer on clearance. For 225 65 17 they were 140/tire yesterday (Feb 1) but 175/tire at the moment (Feb 2).

How are those Goodyear Nordic tires? They completely changed the tread pattern but kept the name it seems.

I was planning to skip buying winter tires this year, but got it now, thanks to you. Do you know whether the price includes installation as well?

Does not include installation. Their installation costs can vary store-by-store, but the locations around here are quite expensive compared to other tire shops.

Tire prices don't include installation. It's another $20/tire or more depending on tire size. Or you can take them elsewhere for install/balance.

Hankook iPike RSV looks like a good value. $300+tax for a 15'' set.
I was checking these out a few years ago and what turned me off is that they are made in China while it seemed that every other Hankook tire (at least at that time) was made in Korea. They are also exclusively sold at CT. I had my suspicions that they were a re-branded tire. I like a good deal as much as the next RFDer, but tires aren't something that I want to cheap-out on.

I ordered the Michelin Xi3 as stocks were limited I didn't want to miss out, but just reading the reviews, some are saying it's really good and others are not so now I'm worried. I have no experience with Winter Tires, these are my first so any pointers are welcome. TIA.

Ask them in detail if you want to have them installed elsewhere..in my case, they said they won't honour the in store warranty if you get it installed elsewhere

Thanks, that's very reassuring. I ordered based on the ratings too, but some reviews made it look like they are not good.

We have those tires on our cars. Independently talking to brother-in-law, he also got the same tires from his research. Recently got those for another relative. They're good winter tires. We don't want to cheap out on tires.

No worries, they're great tires. Blizzaks will have more traction, but once the nanolayer is gone, they are not very good. The Michelins provide excellent traction in all winter conditions while having long tread life, wearing well and having good road manners in the dry. Fantastic tires. The only reason I'm using the Yokohamas on the Miata is that they are a little better on deep snow and ice than the Michelins and the Miata gets super squirrely once there's more than a dusting down.

Does CT offer studding? How much is that?

CT studded tires for my parents vehicle and I believe it was around $100. The tire itself has to be studdable though which most winter tires nowadays are not. Some tires come pre-studded straight from the factory and from I've read are generally better quality studs than the ones that get installed at a tire shop.
