[Canadian Tire] Michelin Premium Tire Totes $19.93 YMMV?

Unadvertised sale at my local CT. Regular $39.99, I just bought a box of 4 for $19.93. It's not in the flyer and shows full price on the website. I've been waiting since last winter for this. These are very good totes..

When I bought mine 2 years ago I think, they were on sale for $21.99, it was a no brainer. I picked up 3. Still have 2 BNIB sitting in garage still.

These are good if you keep your tires vertical. If you stack them horizontal and you don't get the tightest fit possible, you can't pull it up by the handle, you gotta grip the whole tire.
Still makes carrying them cleaner.

Why are they discounting this product? If it ain't broke don't f---ing discontinue it.

These are seriously the best wheel covers you can get.

I would be buying my second set if I could find some.

Costco sells similar tire totes. Can't remember the price and not sure if they are in-stock. Saw them in-store a month ago.

Saw the similar ones at Costco yesterday. They were about $32 for the set of 4. Too bad none of these completely cover the tire+wheel. I would still keep them sealed completely, then using these, when storing.

Your reason for keeping them completely sealed?

helps reduce the oils evaporating from the rubber, hence extending it's lifespan.

You can also buy felts to cover your wheels http://www.kurgo.com/kurgo-categories/a ... pack-of-4/
I find if I store them properly, I never have issues with alloy to alloy contact. I never have a problem taking them off the stack with the handle, either. I've used them with my 19" Venza wheels for 6 yrs/11 change overs now.

Makes sense.

Do you guys also clean the tire with soap/water and let it completely dry before placing it in the bag? Vacuum tight the bag?

Is this really a problem for most users? Most tires wear out from usage.

winter tires tend to get less mileage depending on your region, so in this case, you want to keep the oil in the rubber compound. Any tire that's dried out regardless of wear becomes useless.

CT is clearing out michelin felt covers for $12.93. YMMV, but I picked up a set yesterday in Richmond BC, still had 5 sets left.
