Costco Michelin Defender Tire

It is time to change my snow tires to all-season tires. My old, original all-season tires are almost 9 years old. So I choose to buy a new set of four tires.

As a Costco member, I went to Costco Burnaby store tire department. The staff recommend Michelin Defender.

My old tire size is 215/70 R16. He said the Michelin Defender is 225/65 R16. It is OK to install the new set on the old rims.

 

Oh, there is a rebate $17.50 per tire. So the price is $159.99 per tire.

159.99X4 = $639.96

Installation fee $60

Environment fee $20

Rebates -$70.00

Subtotal = $649.96

Taxes $78.00

Total cost: $727.96

Same size tires in Canadian Tires are $663.96 before tax and fees.

Costco tire services included in the installation package:

  • Inflation checks for the life of the tire
  • nitrogen tire inflation
  • Flat repairs for the life of the tire
  • Balance and rotation for the life of the tire
