Walmart has some very low prices online for this tire, in selected sizes. For example, a 215/45R17 91W is only $58.46 !

The tire was introduced to the market early 2017:

Price is good for a quality tire. My reservation would be if they have an XL load range. Which means a very stiff sidewall. Kind of gives it a hard ride when hitting bumps/pot holes. Not much flex. No way will I make that mistake again. Look for one with an SL load range which are kind of hard to find with Nokian.

Great prices! It's interesting that only one size -- 205/55/R16 -- is available for 16" wheels. Smaller wheels must be becoming a thing of the past very quickly.

My Nokian Hakka 7 winter tires are XL marked for load. I don't find them awful stiff but then again, I don't expect much comfort out of 1) winter tires in general and 2) 2014 Mazda5 van. smile

Can't say I have ever noticed a difference in ride comfort when going from a non XL to an XL tyre. That was on a Ford Galaxy that had non XL tyres fitted when which wherw changed for the correct XL tyres. Both sets of tyres had the same load rating so I don't think there would have been much difference in sidewall stiffness.

Nokians have a decent reputation from what I have read but I have never used them.

But at the price quoted you can't really go wrong.
