costco tires

Whats the deal with purchasing tires from costco? Do you have to make an appointment and how much are the disposal fees? I realize there are install,sensor fees for each tire. Any insite would be appreciated.

Its first come first serve. No disposal fees. They charge for balance/nitrogen. Best deal on tires I have seen in the prov.
I had a nail in my tire and my other tires were low. They couldn't fix the tire they replaced it under warranty. Took all the others off cleaned rims, rebalanced them filled them with nitrogen.Cost me $5.00.

I like can tire. They will match and beat everyone of the dealers mentioned here. Their warranty is also second to none, especially for anything awd. It nice that you're able to go over 490 stores coast to coast with no issues. You dont even need a receipt to get your tires fixed.

Costco only has 97 across canada, but their bays are alot smaller. JMO

The same stands for fountain tire, Kal tire and west end. The tires have a serial number. Fountain and all also offer free flat repair, tire rotation and balancing for life of the tire.... I would never buy another tire from Canadian tire. Their warranty is garbage because you get prorated on the msrp not the price you pay, itís Bs.

Like most of you bought many sets of tires over the years and was thinking Costco on my last but......before shopping for the winter tires I got a nail in other vehicle so went to Kal(new store close to home)....... they took off rim and fixed the hole and when it came time to pay I figured their computer was down because they said no charge have a nice day......I said thanks and they just said remember us when you go to buy your next set of tires and so I did. Sent other people there aswell.

Wouldnt it make more sense to be prorated on the msrp and not the price you pay?!?! If I get them down a 100 bux a tire, it would be in my favor right??

I like the fact that if your vehicle is a 4 wheel drive, they replace ALL the tires if one needs to be replaced. I'm pretty sure the others dont do that...at leat they didnt two years ago. I also like the fact that there are MANY can tires to bring my tires, unlike the businesses you mentioned.

As far as serial number, I dont need it. They look up my phone number and they know I bought them there. There is never any issue. I'm not sure the issues you had for the reasons you wont go back, I guess everyone has issues somewhere, but so far I've never had any (so far...)

Not sure if they still have it but Canadian tire used to have a non pro rated warranty and they would replace the tire for a $5 deductible. I replaced all 4 of my tires like this in early 2000’s.

When tires come on sale every second month why should I pay msrp? There are many of those companies across Canada as well.

Yes you need the serial number. You donít need it yourself. But they will check the tires before they do any warranty work.

Why would they replace all 4 tires on a 4wd? If they are the same size a tire thatís a little worn isnít gonna make a difference on anything. Your the one paying for them to replace them.

Last time I dealt with them they were swapping rubber over for me. Quoted me $120 to swap the 4 tires on my truck. Got a call an hour after I dropped it off saying they didnít realize my tires were 20Ē. I said so? Well itís harder to remove the tire...... I didnít think the tire machine cared. He wanted $15 a tire more. Told him to leave my truck alone. He said he was half done I said oh well put it back the way it was. And then all of a sudden $120 was enough.

Crooks.

Are you serious about the "Why would they replace all 4 tires on a 4wd?"? If you dont know, if the tires are worn enough and one is new, it could damage the drivetrain....kinda like a polaris awd system. If one tire is out of sync, the drivetrain doesnt know what to do and things could get expensive.

Do you know the amount of movement in a 4wd system? You do know that the fronts are open diffs and rear limited slip. They can move independent. What happens when you spin and only 1 tire spins?

A Polaris awd is not the same lol itís front diff locks solid when itís engaged and itís engaged by the rear tires spinning faster with use of a cage and rollers.

Idk what guy in there right mind would purchase tires from Costco. I don't even like going there for groceries. I'd honestly pay more than go into that store. People there are ridiculous the times I've went

If all four tires are worn badly, and you only replace the rear ones for example. The transfer case will load up, causing the weakest part of the drive line to fail. Either the case or a differential. The differential with the new tires will either push, or pull the other one along causing the stress.

If heís claiming warranty on bald tires Iíd understand but weíre not getting that silly are we? Assuming half tread life there isnít gonna be any issues of ďloading upĒ. Another thing is if your running 4wd on bare pavement.... not sure what to say.

SORRY FOR THR CAPS NOT SURE HOW TO CHANGE COLOR.

THIS ONE STATES TIRES SHOULDNT BE FAR APART IN CIRCUMFRENCE. NOTHING ABOUT ACTULLAY MEASUREMANTS.



http://www.3si.org/forum/f35/differe...22/index3.html

THIS ONE STATES MUST BE THE SAME SIZE....OBVIOUSLY WERE NOT DISPUTING THAT THE TIRE MUST BE THE SAME SIZE.



https://www.lesschwab.com/learn/arti...ur-awd-vehicle



http://autoforums.carjunky.com/Autom...ehicle_P74382/

ONCE AGAIN ONE TIRE WAS THE WRONG SIZE. DIFFERENT WIDTH ON SAME ASPECT RATIO MADE THE TIRE SHORTER.



http://www.weareaccurateautomotive.c...vehicle-Beware

SHOWS THE DIFFERENCE IN SUPPOSDULY THE SAME SIZE TIRE. POINT BEING THAT A TIRE THATS 1/4Ē shorter because of wear isnít gonna harm anything.



I hope you get the point...if not, its up to you. Happy reading.


I donít think I get your point. Iím not saying Iím smarter than anyone. But you canít tell me if you have 4 tires that are at half tread and one fails that you it ma me sense to do all 4. I would most likely do 2 and keep the worn one for a spare. Just so rotations can be easier. If your tires are near the end of their life thatís a different story but thatís not part of the conversation.


Research doesnít prove anything without knowledge of how a system works. I agree awd systems are tighter toleranced. Yes most 4wd drive systems are shift on the fly now and spin the front diff while moving. But itís an open diff lol they can spin different directions without harm. A posi diff wonít recognize the difference in a tire that a little bit worn. I would however keep the tires on the same axle at the same wear depth. That doesnít mean they are the same size as tires arenít all identical. I hope you get the point.

I would most likely do 2 and keep the worn one for a spare. Just so rotations can be easier. If your tires are near the end of their life thatís a different story but thatís not part of the conversation.

I read somewhere that anything different than 2/32 (could be wrong) on any of the 4 corners can wreck the drivetrain on a awd.

Look, if you dont wanna change it, dont. I just gave you five pages that say otherwise. Google it a little more and you'll see hundreds more. I like cant tires warranty for this aspect. Costs 12 bux a tire, and you know all your rubber will be replaced. I wouldnt get it for a non awd car though as their 5 year prorated is good enough.

Anyway, nice chatting. If you want to take the risk, by all mean have at er. Wont be wrecking my day or night either way. Have a good one.
