it makes no difference if someone calls customs to say you received 4 new tires if your going to customs to declare it. it's not as if your smuggling them across the border.

I think what he was saying is that they got the tires installed in the States. Then if you come back across the border and don't declare them you are technically "smuggling" them across the border.

Actually guys here a tip for you....

When using a broker (such as UPS, Fedex, etc) you can avoid the big brokerage bill by doing something called self clearing. There are CBSA offices all over the country and most can help you with this. Basically before you go to pay your taxes and duties (if duty applies), you get some paperwork from the shipper (UPS, Fedex, etc) and take that to the CBSA office. They will issue you a reciept for your goods (B15) which you then send to the shipper and you can't be charged the brokerage fees.

This works for anything that is shipped into Canada and no it's not advertised or liked by UPS very much as they make big bucks on the brokerage part but they are required by law to accept you self clearing.

Good luck!

Default Awesome!

And here I thought I was going to have to move to the states ... the inflation on some accessories is ridiculous. The grille guard Ive been looking at is over $300 cheaper down there. Not to mention rims/tires, side steps, flares, etc.

I guess Ill just save for a bit, and order EVERYTHING Ive been wanting ... Get it shipped to one of these awesome places and go pick it all up at once.

for this awesome post, wouldn't have even thought to look for such a thing.

Glad to help....gimme a few days and I'll do a write up and post it under the Canada part as a new thread with a complete how to including what documents to bring with you. In my experience there are some CBSA staff who aren't even aware of it, but I'll give you the info that's on their website (it's buried rather deep!) to bring to their attention.
