I was afraid of that. seems it's terrible prices up here. I do not live close to the border eitherI'm running 18's for winter but I did not (nor would I ever) purchase them up here. Ridiculous prices for rims and tires up here, which is consistent with pretty much everything else.
I had them shipped to the border (Sweetgrass, MT // Coutts, AB) and went and picked them up.
True Enough. If you don't mind me asking. What did you pay for your tires and rims? I'm trying to keep it under $1500 but looks like that might be me dreaming. LOLThere are always ways to meet someone part way. Even paying fuel for someone else to pick things up and bring them half way to you would save 25% or more
Thats very reasonable. Well within my 1500 budgetTires : $473 US delivered
Wheels : $629 US delivered
Just did a quick "shopping spree" on TireRack.com and the tires have gone up a little. If you get them to add the 433 MHz tire pressure sensors and mount and balance them you come up with the following (before shipping):
Tires: $92/ea == $368
Wheels: $142/ea == $568
Sensors: $43/ea == $172 (and mount and hunter road force balance the tires)
Total: $1108 + $150 shipping to Sweetgrass, MT 59484
