Here's the scoop. My local BFGoodrich dealer wants $707 CDN including tax, balancing and install for a set of these tires. www.tirerack.com
wants $248 + 86.06 shipping which is about $494 CDN. Then add $34 UPS brokerage fees, a 2.5% disbursement fee of ~$10 and $36 GST(I save paying our 6% provincial tax for buying out of province) for a total of $574 CDN. I can install and balance these tires myself for free at my dads garage.
So it looks like I'd save about $133. I could save even more if they would just send the tires to me through the mail. I wouldn't have to pay the brokerage and disbursement fees. I'd also save $20-30 on the shipping cost as well.
I was just wondering if there are any costs involved that I don't know about. I contacted Canada Customs and they said that anything that is made in the US or Mexico won't have any duty or tariffs applied.
