I have had a ton of friends go over the boarder and get some tires and they have saved anywhere from 200 to 400 dollars.....That's a pretty good savings however people need to becareful. In a few incidents the licence plate was called into boarder services about the vehicle receiving four new tires..... Just FYI.....

I use AtTheBorderStorage in Sweetgrass, MT. It's $5 per package and they'll hold items for 90 days, so I send a collection of things to them then just head down on one of my days off. Worth every penny since I just got billed $46.97 by FedEx on a $60 package. One tank of gas and a day of driving is worth it to me.

That seems like a great deal and to hold it for 90 days is awesome!!

Hello sporty11,

I have had items shipped to the US/Canadian border quite often including many sets of tires. I have the items shipped to a company called the "Montana Shipping Outlet" in Sweetgrass Montana (www.montanashipping.com) and then go to pick them up myself. The drive to Sweetgrass is 1 Hour from Lethrbridge so this is your closest border crossing. The MSO in Sweetgrass is just a few minutes past the border crossing to your right and up the hill from the Sweetgrass Gas Station and Duty Free Shop. A fellow named Zac runs the place and he charges a very nominal fee for holding your items until you pick them up. You can contact him and register on his website - they will inform you by e-mail when your shipment has arrived.

When you bring the items back across the border to the Canadian Customs, make sure and truthfully tell them you have only been out of the country a little while and that you picked up items at MSO. Declare the full amount and they may or may not make you go inside and pay your 5% GST. Also, there is no $4 Tire Recycling Tax charged as you would be if you purchased in Canada!! So, you save a lot as there is no brokerage.

Biggest thing you should always consider when buying from the USA and comparing to Canadian pricing is to take into account the additional cost to mount & balance + Road Hazard Warranty (if you want it) + your costs to go to Sweetgrass to pick-up your items.

I have purchased many tires from the Tire Rack and brought them into Canada this way. 9 out of 10 times the pricing is better this way even considering my Gas to drive to Sweetgrass. From Calgary, it is pretty much almost your whole day as I try to make it to MSO by 10 a.m. on Saturdays when they open. Note: They are only open the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of each month. I then have Lunch in Lethbridge on the way back home to Calgary.

If you need any more info. just PM me
