I am wondering what kind of charges I should expect if I use purolator? Do they charge customs, GST/PST? Anybody has any experience- good or bad?

You will be billed for the Gst and Pst maybe a small brokerage fee.

I know UPS is the Biggest thiefs when it comes to Brokerage Fees.

Take a long weekend and drive down there if you just getting tires and make it a small holiday.

You will be raped by all those companies for brokerage fees.
UPS is the worst, FedEx once called me and asked if I want do customs duties by myself.

Buying from the US is a pain in the ass. You will get absolutely raped on shipping, duty, and the biggest rip of all... brokerage fees. I only have experience with buying detailing supplies (ie Wax) from the US. I can't imagine how much stuff from Tirerack will cost. I hope you're rich.
