Tires on a budget in Southern Ontario

I bought a new ST 175/80 D13 mounted on a new Rim and delivered for about $90 today. Same size as a radial was $10 + tax more.

The seller lives near St. Thomas and lists frequently on Kijiji in both London and Toronto. Look for Clentec on either. Chatting with him (Adam), he picks them up in Indiana, so he passes through Michigan and the real SW part of Ontario.

It looks like the 15" are on Aluminum rims.

The tire warranty is here:

Good info for folks Roy

What's the born on date on the tire you bought? Just curious if the seller is selling fresh tires...

It looks like Jan 2012, since there is a raised R2JU and stamped 01 12 after the DOT.

I told the seller about FGRV and there was a section for "commercial" postings at reasonable prices.

The tire I got was a H188ST on a rim made in China; it does not say where the tire was made. It looks like he gets them from here: Tredit Tire - Tires and Wheels for RVs and Trailers
Which has outlets across the USA

I bought it as a spare. We lost our brand new spare last summer on the interstate somewhere in Ohio or MI. The weld broke off the spare tire carrier.

Shortly afterwards Carol Ann blew a tire on the highway back here in Ontario and was able to get a replacement installed about a mile away within an hour. I've been keeping an eye out for original rim to replace the lost one and this deal was too hard to pass up with another trip to the USA planned shortly.

A new Carlisle tire alone would have cost me that much, not to mention installation. A used Carlisle on a similar spoked rim was $70 and a 1 hour drive each way.
