Too late for winter rims and tires?

Hi. Am I too late for winter rims and tires? Most places I called do not have the rims (16") I need. I am now thinking of going back to the dealer to buy a set of steel rims, it is $120.5 each with one week waiting due to nothing in stock. I plan to take these rims to a tire store to install a set of Pirelli Sottozero. I know its a rip off to buy rims from the dealer. It costs just as much as replica alloy rims.

Is there anywhere else near Markham you know that I can buy 16" steel rims?

Thanks!!

If you're thinking of going to the dealer of steel rims....

Why not consider these in the for sale section http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62861

It may be worth a drive.. or shipping just for the alloy rims itself.

Anyone knows if I need to pay tax if he ships them from US to me?

Thanks.

Unfortunately there will be brokerage fees at the border... you may be able to get around it by marking as a gift, since they are used.

Thanks. Do you know where they are made? The tire shops I spoke to all sell Taiwan replicas at around $125. But of course they are all sold out now.
