I bought a pair of Douglas Xtra Track tires at Walmart 2 years ago. On the wife's Camry, about 15K miles later, I haven't had any complaints.

Hate to be a nuisance, but have been quoted $416 (Canadian) plus tax for four installed, balanced Kelly Edge All Seasons. Anyone with experience with these tires????

thanks again

No experience, but here's a review, maybe will help.

Based on your needs, the tried-and-true Traction/Tread/Temperature ratings are always a good decision assistant. I also sometimes give serious consideration to noise and LRR (Low Rolling Resistance)factors, but again, what best fits your circumstances.

I see 15 inch tires for my Aerostar are $50 each.

It only has 288000 miles I might want to try for 300k.

Needs tires is all.

How much is Wally World installation per tire?

From their site:

At $12 per tire, Walmart offers quite an affordable installation rate that will include mounting, valve stems, and lifetime balance and rotation after every 7500 miles, plus a lug re-torque after the first 50 miles. If you add another $10, this gets you a road hazard warranty. On selected tires, you also get a warranty for tread wear.

FWIW, the last few sets of tires I've bought were from my local Chevy dealer. THE BEST initial price, warranty, etc. PLUS, free rotate whenever I want. As they also have the best oil change pricing, I get oil and tire service every 5,000 miles.

I would go 7500 but if you recall my engine saga...

BJs came in $50 cheaper for four 21570r14s.

Installed with warranty and life time rotation + new stems.

Another marginal contribution from The Nostril...

I wouldn't hesitate having Firestone/Bridgestone on my trucks. I've gotten great life (over 100,000 miles) without issue on the last few sets I've owned.
