Best tire provider------winter and summer
I need to buy some new tires for my Dodge Caravan. Ive saved a bit of money so Im thinking of purchasing both winter and summer ones in one go-----this helps with a bit of a tax write off too, if not I would spread it out.

Without traipsing all over the city to check, Costco, CND Tire, OK Tire, Buddies Tire etc.

Who do people generally recommend for the best value.

I live in Halifax, but i'm sure its pretty much the same Canada wide?

Thank you.

But if want Nokian tires and you live in BC, you need to go to Kal Tire to buy them.

My dealership got me tires at manufacturer cost to them, so I reckon I got a decent deal out of that. if you do regular services at your dealership and they know you ask them and see what they can do.

Costco seems to be a good place if they carry the size you need.

Last time we used Fountain Tire, $108 per tire if I recall. kumho solus which are fine for year round in Vancouver, while they are legal for highway winter driving in BC, I wouldn't try to climb mountain highways with them, but we don't leave Vancouver in winter and for Vancouver they do fine in winter.

2 weeks after we got the new tires, we ran over a screw, and Fountain replaced the tire with a brand new one even though they didn't have to, so I thought that was good service.

If you don't want the bother of phoning around then Costco. You aren't going to lose out particularly & likely get a good price.
If you want the absolute lowest price then spend half an hour phoning around. This is one of those things local rather than national.

OH generally finds tires (and rims) on Kijiji, but you do have to know what you are looking at as descriptions of wear and tear can be quite random. A lot of people sell their summers/winters part worn as they have no where to store them or have just bought a new car and the tires/rims won't fit on the new car.
