For all those who are looking to get winter tires.. where are you looking? what brand? size? Are all-weather (not to be confused with all-season) tires the way to go?
I have a set of winter tires used for 1 season (barely) that fits a 2020 sedona 235/65/R17 that I'm willing to sell.

I live in the GTA, Ontario area.

Also looking to pick up Winter wheels and tires. Tire Rack doesn't have any information yet. Would like to go with dedicated wheels/tires for ease of swapping out each season.

Does anyone know which wheels fit without modification?

I ordered the Michelin Michelin X-Ice Snow winter tires from Costco (top rated by consumer reports). Will have them installed in December. I do not plan to buy wheels, but instead have Costco replace them for me twice a year (the ROI of wheels over paying for installation twice a year is over 10 years with Costco). Kia sells Continental that are comparable (and similarly rated by CR) to the Michelin but they charge $144 (at the dealership near me) every time they swap them. Costco had a $150 off on a set of 4 when I bought them, so I ended up paying $864 for 4 including 6.25% MA taxes. Now they have it on Bridgestone...
Michelin were out of stock online since I started looking in September, but at the warehouse they can probably order them.
Regardless of what you decide to buy, I suggest to everyone thinking about winter tires to order them early considering the supply chain issues all around, especially if you are interested in a specific tire brand.

Those Sedona tires will fit your Carnival, if it is barely used then what's the point of getting new ones?

I actually picked up some Blizzaks from Costco when they had the 20% off sale during Labour day and they are mounted on 18 inch Kia Seltos SX wheels. I believe Costco is having a deal right now on Michelin tires...if you want to go that route then I would get the Michelin X-Ice snow (used them on my BMW and they were great).

I've also dealt with discounttiretoronto.com in the past..they are located in Scaborough and Oshawa I believe...but they have really good prices for tires

I am glad to see another Carnival owner in the GTA...I'm in York region

I asked the service rep at my dealership and he said it wouldn't fit. I will be looking at the costco deals this week..
I'm not sure why the dealership said that....please see below

The tire size on your 17s are fine. Maybe they are referring to the wheel? If that's the case then all you need is to buy new wheels and keep the existing winter tires
