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.

Installation fee $60
Environment fee $20
Subtotal = $649.96
Total cost: $727.96
