Default Import duty on Wheels from US

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me how much duties/fees I will be charged if I import
a new set of wheels from the US?

I would like to buy a set of RIMS off of EBAY, but I need to know how
much tax I'll pay to determine if it's a worthy proposition.

Do tricks like getting the sender to state that it's a gift or
understating the value of the wheels help?

And if customs detect your treachery, they will confiscate the wheels
and fine you.

You will certainly pay GST & PST and you'll pay any applicable duties.
If the wheels were manufactured in the US and there's proof, they may be
importable under NAFTA.

Check with CCRA for the likely percentage duty.

If you're having them shipped *DON'T LET THEM USE UPS* ... they ALWAYS
charge over $30 extra for brokerage.

That won't happen.

What does this have to do with importing? It's a sold item that can
be shipped anywhere. It's like buying something from an American
company .... they'll ship them Timbuktoo for you if you want them
there!

You will not have to pay PST on this purchase. Only GST.

No duty.

Anyways.

I bought wheels and tires from tirerack.com. I paid $600US and then
shipping on top of that. I think it worked out to $1295 CDN as the
final bill.

Of course they'll ship them anywhere.

You *may indeed* have to pay PST depending on the province you live in.
Customs do collect PST for some provinces - and for some provinces GST &
PST are combined as HST.

Why? If it's manufactured in N. America, they may be admissible at 0
duty under NAFTA, but if manufactured elsewhere, they could indeed and
probably are dutiable.
