15% to the invoice price also there can be duties on rims, it all depends where the were(rims) made.

I ordered a DVD player from states, I payed $300 for taxes, no other duties fees.
so u better call customs and ask if there is some special prices on the rims.

plus if it's private deal, ya can ask seller to lower the price on the invoice, BUT you will lose money if something gonna happen to the rims.
But the best thing, ask the guy to ship it as a gift, then may not pay an duties and taxes.

I spent about 3 weeks on ebay checking it for wheels every 2-4 hours. Good auctions with "Buy it Now" option end very quickly.

Name's Serge

When I got them, he had 4 different sets for sale: mine, 95 M3 10spoke, contours and something else.

I think 10 spoke ones were $499 with Buy it Now. Contours were like 400 bucks(with a couple of bids, so no Buy it now). I just snatched mine for 245. It was definitely a great deal.

Thanks
