200$ for 4 steel rims. Is that a decent deal?
15 inch. If I buy both tires and rims from CT, would they install it for me free or less charge than normal?
Anywhere between $50-80 is fine for rims. The higher end is due to the diameter of your rim.

When buying the rims, purchase Hub centric and OEM compatible rims as opposed to lug centric rims. The article below describes why.

How are those Goodyear Nordic tires? They completely changed the tread pattern but kept the name it seems.
I bought them a few years ago on my Mazda 3. They were the worst tires money could buy. My Michelin all season tires had better grip.

Thank you OP, this should be in the top contenders for top deals of the year.

If anyone is looking for 16" wheels with 114.3x5 bolt pattern, 45mm offset (fits civic, mazda3, etc.) do a search for "009-6018-6" [edit: working link - https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/0096018.html]
Shows up at $39.99, but managed to steal one for $9.99 on clearance to replace a damaged one.
11 in stock in oakville, others in burlington.

YMMV!

Looks like I can get Michelin x ice 2’s for $146 a tire at 235/65/r17.

Now I don’t have steel for them and probably would not use them until next season. Is it still worth securing now? Is this price per tire hard to find even in off season?

Thanks - needed to replace my aging snow tires. Got the Michelins for a good price. With my triangle rewards card I was able to activate an offer to get an extra $20 in CT money back and I was able to stretch the payment over 12 months.

Same, ordered a set of 225/45/18 Xice3's for a good price. Chose the 12 month 0% payment option too, never tried that before, but I guess it should be simple, just set a scheduled payment for the min balance. You can't pay it off early right?

Is it just me or does CT not send out order confirmation Emails if you order online?

I put my first online order with them last year, never got any Email. The site says don't bother going to the store unless you receive the Email saying that it's ready, so I waited. 5 days later I go to the store to see what's up and they said it was ready for pick up 5 days ago.
I chalked that up to some system error. I checked my junk mail and it has nothing from CT.

I placed an order for the Xice3's last Thursday, again no confirmation Email, nothing in the junk mail folders. I've checked that my profile information is correct. The order status says "in progress", but it also mentions available for pickup after 4pm. I decide to wait a bit. Last Sunday, I went to the store to see what's up and they said they don't even have my order.
After showing them my order via their website, they found the order, but couldn't find the tires in the store, despite the website showing they had 4. Turns out someone sold them back in Nov 2018 and didn't update the system, so they had to order a set in.

Today the store calls me and says the tires are in. I check my online order status and it still says pending.

Something tells me CT online ordering still isn't ready for prime time.

I have Nokians that have a DOT of 3613 with 5 to 6 mm tread left. So i would say yes, they're still good.
You need at least 4 mm tread to be considered a winter tire.

You can offset that by using higher tire pressure when installed. I use 36PSI at installation time, which is above freezing in autumn. In mid-winter, even with the pressure drop at low temperature, they'll still be 32-ish. It works very well.

Tires that are made to be used (even if not exclusively) in winter have a tradeoff between snow and ice. It's much easier to optimise for snow, hence the existence of M+S tires, which do well in snow and can be terrible on ice (because they must also be hard enough to turn away rocks in off-road environments that include the 'M'ud part of that designation). X-Ice tires are optimised for ice.
Man I tried from 30 all around 35, and 40 all around! it was those damn Xice3 had massive sidewall flex compared to PA4, both 235/40/18

Well, seems like it was for naught. I got them and they were manufactured in 2016 with one in 2015. Getting them refunded. These were ordered from a warehouse with the request of latest DOT number (the CSR specifically typed that into the notes for the order) but I guess either the person in the warehouse didn't care or just wanted to troll (more likely the former). Guess I'm gonna have to look around again.
