FYI...hope this helps....I just went through this 2 days ago.

I have got stuff through United Parcel Service Ground and have got away with no taxes but I have realized that it all depends on where the prduct is make. If it was made in the US or canada, then free trade applys. Otherwise you will be taxed.

6% on Rims not made in US or Canada.

6.5% on tires not made in Canada.

Plus GST and PST on the reciept value. In some provinces HST.

So I would guess about 23% is a safe number.

Taxes will be charged and value in Canadian Dollars.

NEW OR USED MAKES NO DIFFERENCE !!!

Keep in mind that if the product you are buying is not made in a Country that is on the USA's GOOD TRADING PARTNERS LIST then you will be taxed to HELL and BACK !!!!

I'm not a pro at this stuff but you can call these guys for 100% accurate info....
