Triangle snow tires

A few reputable tire places nearby sell and recommend this tire. I found some reviews on this tire and they are generally solid reviews despite some people who have never used the tire saying to stay away from it. Has anyone ever used this brand? I was quoted $168 per tire for size 235/55r/18.

If you're looking for a budget snow tire that's what these are. Won't be as good as top tier brands, but still better than all seasons.

Might be kinda bumpy ride though. Guess it won't matter if snow is thick enough to cushion the bumps.

Had these Triangle Winter tires on for one winter. It's your typical Chinese tire and was nothing special. Only got 1 season out of them as I hit a pothole one night at -30 and the tire completely blew from the side wall Speaks for the quality. Pony up and get a more reputable tire or a used name brand tire.

Are there any tires that are under $200 per a tire? I don't mind paying $200-220 per tire. The Bridgestones, Goodyears, Michellins in 235/55r/18 are all about $250-500 per tire.

Can you downsize to a narrower tire and smaller rim? Should be a lot cheaper.

Purchased 2 sets of Michelin X-Ice Xi3 (205/55R16 + 215/60R16) with steel rims ... from Premier Wheels Direct (Scarborough) .... $1700 CASH and you have $140 MIR ... which brings it down to $1560 ... $780 a set.

YOU CAN'T GET A BETTER DEAL THAN THAT!

My own 15" Falken Espia with steel rims cost $620 ... at the same place purchased two seasons ago!

Why don't you head out to Discount tire in Bellingham? Might save a bit on the size you need.
