i need discount canadian rims!

http://www.wheelmax.com/Wheels/exel/e2-hblack.htm

The above rims are $99 USD SHIPPED to the US (thanksgiving sale) ... they want $150 USD for shipping to canada and i'd get screwed with customs and taxes on top of that

Where in canada can I get rims at good prices?.. online? 50% christmas sales?

wheels direct in scarborough
look em up in the phone book for the number, but they're one of the largest rim/tire dealers in the city. They're kinda difficult to deal with because they're always so busy (so expect to wait to talk to someone), but you always get a really good price on things there and the service is quick. I get all my tires changed there too 'cause they haven't scratched a rim of mine yet.

btw, the rims i mentioned from wheelmax.com ..

99*4+150 = 542 USD is what they ask
lets say i get screwed by customs (assume 1.3 conversion rate, 60 bucks to tell me how much customs and taxes, 15% taxes, 6% duty)
542*1.3*1.15*1.06 + 60 = 918 CAD
thats $229 per rim , delivery and tax included...

still cheaper than what i can get in canada.. but because im in canada, im getting penalized by twice the price!!!

What is wrong with having a rim named after a chewing gum Miguel?
