Off Topic, Kinda.....

Recommended Posts

How many kms are you putting on it per year?

 

15-20000. More than half in the summer. I have a couple seasons left on my winters.

If you want cheapest, Costco is probably your best bet but you get what you pay for with tires.

 

I’d recommend Going to Kal tire and getting some Michelin Defenders for that size (its a common size in a lot of mid size SUVs and mini vans. We sell a bunch of them for the cx5. Michelin product code is 404402). Price should be around $750-800 installed for a set of 4. If they are charging much more than that, they are ripping you off. Call a few different stores and price match if you have to. Good for 60-80k and won’t kill you if you get a spring snowfall after the winters are off.

I have Defender's on my Jetta. Good tires.

 

I bought them last year at Canadian Tire and they gave me $100 in Crappy Tire money instead of the usual rebate. Shoppers Drug Mart was selling Canadian Tire gift cards at a 10% discount as well so I bought $500 of gift cards and saved another $50. I bought the tires there and took them to my own mechanic to install. I'm lucky that the Uncle of a good friend has a 3 bay shop and they are really good and really honest.

Random Q.

 

Does anyone know where I can access polling numbers for specific districts for the upcoming Alberta Election? I need to know whether the UCP is going to win in a landslide in my district or if it is close at all.

Never mind. Found the results from the 2015 election. Looks like the PCs and the Wildrose got a combined 75% of the vote in my district. NDP got less than 20%. It’ll probably be 80% UCP in this election. Guess I’ll throw a vote to the Alberta Liberals.

 

All the idiots around here are going to need a new boogie man to blame all their problems on after Notley and Trudeau are gone and nothing changes.

Got my Defenders put on today, thanks again Dubey!

Also got my MVI and other minor work done. Only unexpected problem is they said my e-brake cable was toast and needed replacing (don’t think I have used my e-brake once with this vehicle) which was $90 for the part and $150 all-in.
