[Costco] Michelin Tire Tote Marked Down $29.97 Possible YMMV?

Seen at Beacon Hill in Calgary. If you were wavering at $40, this will be a good buy for you. Still $46.99 online.

YMMV since this was spotted in Calgary. You'll have to venture into your local store to see the price dropped.

Still listed at $46.99 online.

This is a tote
"A heavy-duty shell with an easy-to carry handle slips over the tire and rim to protect your clothing and car interior from grime, while organizing your garage."
"Holds up to 37 kg (80 lb.)"

Did you think this was a tire rack?

I'm assuming he meant the weight, A set of 22's with steel rims can can get up there in weight. might tear the handle trying to lift them around maybe?

Well, I mean I want to know if it can support the weight of both as they're quite heavy. If it just rips then it's pointless, isn't it?

These can handle the weight of the rims + tires. Use these for Honda pilot rims which I think are 19".

Tires need to be stored in a *SEALED BAG*. These tire totes are fine but you all should be covering them in a big garbage bag first. Otherwise all you're doing is making your tires look decent in a tote but doing NOTHING to actually 'prolong' their life.

I don't use totes to store any of my tires - always in big Costco sized garbage bags and sealed/wrapped tight. Google it.

Why would this matter if tires are indoors away from sunlight?

I have these currently on 21” tire/alloy and it’s a tight squeeze. The material has held up so far and the handle is a bit of a godsend when transporting these

*facepalm*. Other than common sense, how hard is it to Google things. I mean, I literally put that in my post!

4. Keep each tire in an airtight plastic bag.
Aside from sunlight, the next leading tire deteriorator is oxygen. Some things in storage require airflow to breathe and stay in good condition. Tires, on the other hand, do better when they are vacuum sealed in plastic. An airtight space prevents oxygen from reaching the tires, slows down the oxidation process, and prevents the oil from evaporating and drying out the tires. Remember to wrap each tire individually for the best results.

Heck, take it from Continental themselves!

2. After cleaning, place each tire in its own large, airtight plastic bag (lawn and leaf bags work well here) for storing. Avoid any moisture in the bag and remove as much air as possible. Close the bag tightly with tape to create a personal space for each tire. This helps to reduce oil evaporation.

Right up there with not doing brake fluid flushes. Anyway all this to state I don't get why people on RFD buy these tire totes. They serve no purpose. Might as well stack these tires bare one on top of another. It does the same as using totes.

It is very sturdy. I have been using them in the past decade and I have 16", 17", 18" and 20" rims, though 20" is a bit too big for the totes.

I purchased them from Canadian Tire and it has a lifetime warranty. If it broke, you can take it back and ask for a replacement, it is written somewhere on the box. So it may apply to Costco and others retailers selling them, but I am not sure.

The price is not bad. I got them from $20 from sale at first, then inflated bit by bit to $25 that I last bought more than 5 years ago.

I've been using these with 19" rims for about 5 years or so and they have worked with no issues.
