CDN Tire...It's cheap as hell, and they're only winter tires. No need to spend lots of cash. Summer will be here soon enough and you'll want the $$$ for mods

Re: Winter tires (GoLfT)

Not sure how much they are new BUT I got a set of used (one season) Eagle Ultragrip's and they are EXCELLENT. Very quiet, lots of grip even in dry weather (better than my worn out Yokohamas!) and have a nice unidirectional tread that is very agressive looking. Got mine for $400 Cdn including 14" alloys!!!
Try the classifieds - I'm sure you'll come up with something.

Re: Winter tires (soo1)

If you have the money buy a good set like Nokia Hakkapelita's or the Michelin's they will cost more right now but in three to four years you will still be driving on the same set of snows. I have also heard that the new Good Year Tire is good. Check with your local VW dealer they have packages they get from VW and sometimes they might have a used set or two kicking around.

Canadian Tire "tractor tire specials" for me. When I get a real car, I;m sure I'll be able to justify a set of Nokian Hakkas...but till then... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
