Tires are probably one of the most important part of the car. They are the only four contact patch connecting you and your passengers to the ground you drive on. Any turning, stopping anything to do with grip it is all on the tires. With that in mind ask yourself do you really want to rely on a $29 tire? Michelin, Bridgestone, Continental are expensive for a reason alot of money has gone in to testing those tires to offer the best performance under all driving conditions.

Should be better than any all season tire in the winter and being sold in Canada through Walmart these have to have certifications such as DOT to sell. If one is on a tight budget, I'd ride these over all seasons.

If I didn't already have winter tires I'd be running to square one to pick up a set.

They also spend a lot of money on advertising, racing programs and rebate programs.

Any certified Winter tire will be better then "any" All-season you are most likely running.
This deal is not for me but I want the person behind me in winter to be running these tires at $29-$87 each and not running All-season or Winter tires under 4/32.

True but that is also how they advance and improve their tires by pushing tires to the limit

Also some of these tires are older designs retired by the major brands.

Probably... but they also do a lot of R&D with that money.

I used this brand on for my Camry, got them for similar price last winter from Walmart, and my tyre guy said they were great!

Never had any issues with the grip throughout the winters, great for GTA roads… best deal!

Pretty cheap tires.. Considering I prob spent almost $400 each for my winter Pirellis.

Good enough I guess if you have an older ride.

You are mostly right, but just be aware that there have been tests showing certain all-season models outperform certain very low quality winter tires in winter.

This seem to be a good deal, but I am sticking with highly rated winter tires myself at a much higher cost. Tires and brakes are not the place to save money, to me.
