2008 Astra XR
Default If you need 16" winter tires - decent deal for US Astra owners

I saw this on one of the deal sites I monitor. Discount Tire/America's Tire will usually match the deals from their online store. I have my snow tires and summer tires from Discount, and the best savings in my mind is that they will swap my wheels and tires for free (assuming you have them mounted already on a spare set of wheels) in the spring and the fall.

I've had winter tires for 2 years now, and I can't tell you how much better and safer the Astra is in the snow and ice with a good set of winter tires - plus it lets me run summer tires in the summer.

Anyway, under $300 for 4 decent winter tires seems like a great deal.
They are General Altimax Arctic 205 /55 R16 for $96 each, plus $40 off 4 and a $50 rebate off 4.

Default Re: If you need 16" winter tires - decent deal for US Astra owners

These are the tires I run. I did alot of research on tires when I bought them 6 years ago, and these won hands down. I drive in extreme winter conditions up here on the east coast of Canada and I mean extreme. These tires served me well! I would pay full price for these so on sale is an even better deal on a great tire if anyone is interested thats my opinion!
