You definitely have to declare it, but whether or not you have to pay taxes is up to the discretion of the officer you deal with.

6.1% duties
have your private seller write up an invoice for the wheels
if you are paying by paypal, print off the receipt of the payment for extra support

i bought a set of used wheels from the states from a private seller - the customs officer just looked @ the receipt, wrote up a slip and off I went to pay it off.

if you had to pay for shipping, make sure that shipping costs are indicated as well, b/c many customs officers would take off the shipping costs while calculating duties + taxes.

No you have to pay total 18.1% so 362 in taxes.. depending on your currency.

6.1 + 12 taxes = 18.1% total
write a lower value on the wheels if you want - as long as the customs officer thinks its reasonable they wouldnt care

i wrote 950usd for 18" volk ce28s (used) with brand new tires.

I wanted to buy some Honda HFP wheels from the States, but after shipping, exchange, duty, and taxes the costs really add up. Ended up buying a set of aftermarket wheels locally.
