Shipping tires/wheels from USA

Does anyone have experience shipping tires/rims from the US?

What are the fees involved?
I am interested in a set from Velocity motoring .....the VB3 (CSLs) cost is $1299 for tires and wheels...plus taxes, shipping and exchange

If they are made in the US, then there would be NO (6%) Duty on them.

Shipping with USPS is the best as they don't rape you with brokerage charges.

If you use UPS, FedX etc... you will get charged the following:

Brokerage Charge, 6% GST, 8%PST when it hits the border.

Thanks, I hope Velocity motoring ships via USPS.....I am just worried about brokerage and customs keeping the rims/tires in their warehouse.

Tell them to write MADE IN THE USA on the package. The %6 importation fee is not fun, specially if the wheels are a little more expensive then your regular wheels. Too bad I found it the hard way when they shipped me 5 wheels with boxes that said "made in Germany" bigger then the wheels brands logo's.

ship it to somewhere in detroit, and go pic it up from there, when you cross its hit or miss if your paying. or have them make you up a shipping receipt for like 200 bucks for the rims

What if the rims are made in Tiawan or some other place, could I still request them to put made in the USA?
