Blizzak WS70s ?
Called the dealer today - the steel rims they quoted me were part # 42700SZAA02, which are apparently ( from a web search ) Honda Pilot or Ridgeline 17" rims.
One of the deals they offered was Blizzak WS70 235-65-r17. The folks at Costco suggested the WS70 didn't have the proper load rating for an MDX ( 104 instead of a minimum of 105 ). They suggested the Blizzak XL DM V1 which has a higher load rating ( 109 ).
My question would be why is the dealer offering an under sized tire...
The dealer "deal" was $1540 + HST for WS70s + rims + TPS , installed, which seems about right for a Canadian dealer, but high otherwise.
Edit: checked the Tire Rack site: the WS70s are speed rating T (118mph) , while the DM V1 are R (106 mph ), so now I'm confused which one I should pick.
