I'm on my 4th set but always ship them to the U.S. and bring them across,you will pay both taxes,but less shipping and no brokerage.

You're looking at 13 percent of the declared value. Keep in mind they will convert USD to CAD and tax you the 13 percent on whatever it is in Canadian funds.

That being said, you could probably do some creative accounting and claim they are worth less - but you're playing with fire.

A guy just informed me of this website recently, and having just received a set of wheels from the US, I can verify that it is REALLY accurate!

My wheels were $450 US$, and shipping was just over $200 US$. Total to my doorstep was just shy of $900 CDN$.

Plug in your numbers and see ... it'll give you a realistic estimate.

Good calculator, Cap'n Pete.

Your best bet (if you're close) is to drive to the border and pick them up on the US side. You'll save time and some fees.
