OK, so took the plunge and purchased some tires from CT.

I did buy Continentals - 235/65R18 106T TrueContact tires.

The tires I bought are shown with the checkmark (in the image) and the ones I didn't buy have the X on the image. The only thing different is one is the 2018 version and the other is the 2019 version, at least that's what they told me.

Using them for the day and they seem "firmer" than the tires that came with the SUV.

The tires cost me $559.72 (all prices are CDN).

Balancing was $80.00

Tire kit (whatever the hell that is) was $9.96

Disposal fee (for the old tires) is $20.00

Somehow I bought the "advanced" warranty for $51.96 -- though the last time I bought this on my previous car, I never did use it. Probably "wasted" $51.96 + tax.

Alignment was $129.99 less 50% so $64.99

Steering & Suspension Kit $4.99 -- what the hell is that??

Total of parts was $559.72, labour was $209.99, other was $21.92, GST was $39.58 and PST was $55.41 for a grand total of $886.62.

I have to take the car in for "new tire balancing" by or before March 30 otherwise they will charge extra ($49.99 + tax) when I take the car in for "tire servicing" after 20k kms.

They said that rear brakes need to be done, cost will be $320.27 and that I would need to flush the break system -- that will be another $100.34 (both prices with tax).

I should have become a mechanic. :-)

Anyway... tires down, brakes and battery to go.

As I mentioned in a previous post, this tire is exclusive to Canadian Tire for Canada; I found out that it's available to all in the US but not in that size...Go figure! If they seem firmer, perhaps the pressure is higher by a few pounds or your previous tires were a little low on air but not enough to trigger the TPMS light.


Just curious, what tires were on your Murano from the factory? Continental CrossContact LX Sport, Michelin Latitude? Thanks for sharing!

Canadian 2017.5 Pearl White SV w/Driver Assistance Package replaced '14 SL Pearl White. Cargo net. Cargo protector (home made with carpet). Nissan black rubber floor mats. SS rear bumper protector. Draw Tite hitch. Blind zone mirrors. Wheel locks. Blizzak DM-V1 245/70/17 w/steelies & wheel covers. Spoiler under front bumper removed. H11 to H9 low beam conversion. Nissan polished SS rear license frame.

I believe they were the Michelin Latitude.

The tire is definitely firmer, two days driving and I never even thought to check the TPMS.

The old tires never triggered the TPMS except for the front right, there was a problem with it so after about 30-45 days it would drop to about 30 and I'd have to fill it up.

Hello mos2009murano, how many KMs did you put on the tires before needing a change?

Thanks

Hey - I'm just around 80,000km or 49710mi. The new tires are rated for 145,000km -- lets see if I get there; I've never had tires last that long.

My Continental CrossContact LX Sport didn't last as long.

So next "big" expense on the car will be brakes.

Took my car to CT and they said only rear brakes need to be changed. Any benefit in doing only rear or should I get both done?

Given that they will use their own products, are there ratings for brakes at CT? Rotors? They said that both need to be changed.

They have quoted me $320.00 for the brakes plus $100 for bleeding the brake system.

if you have some basic tools and knowledge, a few you tube videos, you should be able to do the brakes on your own......


and if they are doing a brake bleed, make sure it's a complete flush of the system, or have that done at the dealer, you should have already had this done at least once....



on the other hand, if it's 320 bucks for new pads, rotors and labour then that is not so bad either......


to put in perspective my Mercedes is rough 400 bucks just in parts per wheel.....ouch


good thing we do it ourselves....

Just got my car back from dealer,
Transfer case seal was leaking.
They mention need new brakes front and rear.
Quote 380 per side + $200 if new rotors. No brakes bleeding.

Got Akebono pads front and rear for about 85$ from Amazon.
Something tondo over weekend.

My experiences are that CT is the worst place for any auto repairs. i wouldn't buy tires there also. Do yourself a favor and go to a reputable tire shop to buy tires and for minor service.
Tire shops specialize in tire replacements and auto repairs. They don't sell groceries, frying pans, toys and bedding out plants.
Many repairs a knowledgeable and handy person can do.
Brakes? I don't think so.
Go to the pros for that. You either can or can't stop 2 tons of rolling vehicle.

Perhaps the ones you have gone to were bad but not all CT's are.....


My friends son is a mechanic and works for CT, he is a great mechanic, went to the same school, passed all the same courses and tests and has his certification from the governing bodies, he is the same mechanic as most others are in way of the avenue he had to go through to get his credentials and certification, there are no shortcuts to becoming a licensed mechanic.



There are good and bad mechanics everywhere, not just at Canadian Tire.....


Just for reference, the Canadian Tire just around the corner from me is one of the few Canadian Tire shops that can do the import inspection on vehicles coming into Canada and wanting to be registered here to drive on our roads, if you don't get passed by the mechanics your vehicle will not be on the road....


oh and tire shops don't specialize in car repairs, they specialize in tires....but even Canadian Tire sells most major brands of tire's......I usually get tires where ever I can find them the cheapest in price.....but get them mounted and balanced at a reputable place that knows what they are doing.....


If you are mechanically inclined and the old calipers, pads and rotors are not seized on the vehicle, most DIY guys/gals can do their own brake job, you don't need a specialist, but you need to have some idea of what you need to do....
