Well I finally got winter tires for my car! What happened was I had put out on ad on Kijiji saying I was hoping to find some in like-new condition for a reasonable price. I had a guy reply and I was interested. He was selling a set of tires AND rims for $350, used for only 1 season. I thought that was pretty good. I went to the Canadian Tire website just to read user reviews on that brand of tire (Goodyear Nordic) and not only did they have great reviews but they were on sale!! They were $77 each. Times that by 4, add tax and thats about $350. But the used ones included rims. I talked to my parents and they both thought I should forget about the used ones because even though it was a great deal there is no need to have a 2nd set of rims. So I went to the store and got the new ones. I forgot there was some government fee on them, which was $5.84 each. So I ended up paying $378 for them. Which is still a great price and you know what was the best part?? I had saved up the money already so I didn't have to worry about paying that off on my credit card!!!
