tire-totes for snow tires

I got my snow tires from Gill today. Blizzaks on KM-11's with BMW centre caps and they look great. I got a set of Michelin Tire-totes at Costco today for $30. Those things are worth the $$$. It covers them up and makes them very easy to carry. I had to carry them into my basement and it made it very easy. I had some stupid plastic bags for my last set of snow's and they sucked to carry tires with! If you have a set of snows...go to Costco for the tire-totes!

I got them at the Langley Costco. They had a whole pallet of them so you shouldn't have trouble getting them.

I thought I can just change over my caps from my summer wheels to my winters... I got the darker (satin or so) KM-11s from Gill as well but they came with their original centre caps...
please don't break my heart and tell me I will have to drive with those all winter

Gill installed the BMW center caps on my snows. They aren't very expensive. Just get a set for him and use those. I think the set of 4 was under $20. They look very good. The casual observer would think I spent $$$ on factory BMW wheels for my snow tires.

I know the totes are available at Calgary Costco's so I would think it's likely that they are in GTA as well. I got mine through Gill when I ordered my wheels and tires, but $30 is a great deal.

BTW, picked up the tire totes from CDN Tire today. Best part is that they tell you availability closest to you.
