Everybody knows that if you’re looking for a deal, Costco probably has it because they sell just about everything you could think of, winter tires being one of them. Costco tends to rotate on their winter tire deals, as they currently have a deal on Bridgestone winter tires. Right now they’re offering $120 in savings when you buy a set of four Bridgestone winter tires.
One of the main reasons Costco has become so popular with its winter tire offerings is because of its cheap installation fees, at $19.99 per tire. This fee covers installation, rotation, balancing and flat repairs for the lifetime of that tire. It also includes a mileage, road hazard and manufacturer’s defect warranty. This offer is also available across Canada.

On top of the rebates, if you purchase from Kal Tire, you’ll also qualify for their Customer Care Plan. This plan covers you for flat tires, inflation, rotation and balancing every 8,000km for the life of your tires.
