I believe in Western Canada, you can only get them from Kal Tire as they have exclusive rights. 1010tire has them, but I have read that they won't ship them to if you live in Western Canada, however results have been mixed.

I'm pretty sure I saw Nokian tires in the Cdn Tire flyer this week. They were going from $50 but I believe those were for 13" tires :S

I was looking at the Vatiiva A/T. simular to the WR but non directional. but sadly not winter rated either. the WR don't come in my size.

the kal tire price wasn't bad. but they wanted $32 per mount which is ridiculous $25 + 7 for new vavle stems)

I've heard discounttire in the US can get them. (the local stores, not the online shipping part of it). and they only charge $12 for mounting with free vavle stems. if I stay down for 48hrs no cnd tax. but I'll have to pay the 8% wash tax. I haven't called down for pricing yet.

do you think kal tire would come down at all to match?

tough call, unless u can get a price in paper.

valve stems that cost 7 bucks? when i was working at advance, we had customers complain about us charging $2 bucks for each valve stem and thats the best price we can comprimise on. as for mounting tires, if its a truck size tire, i would understand the extra cost as they may need a beed blaster to do it. its not so much more effort, but comes down to just need to pull at least 1 more guy to help do the mounting (one to hold the tire and inflater, another guy to use the beed blaster)
