Do you mind referencing where this is from?

Is it regardless of whether they're mounted on your car, or if they're in your trunk?

One more question to add.

Do you declare the value of the tires only or the shipped price??

Hmmm, I couldn't quite find the exact reference (I may have misquoted), but this reference should suffice. From CBSA's website under "repairs/alterations to motor vehicle/vessel/aircraft"

Quote:
Repairs or alterations to your vehicle/ vessel/aircraft

If you intend to have repairs or alterations made to your vehicle/vessel/aircraft outside Canada, check with the CBSA for information before you leave. Under customs legislation, the CBSA can no longer consider your vehicle, vessel or aircraft to be Canadian-made if you increase its value, improve its condition or have it modified outside Canada. As a result, you may have to pay duty and the goods and services tax (GST) or harmonized sales tax (HST) on the entire value of the vehicle/vessel/aircraft when you bring it back.

No duty will apply to the value of the repairs or alterations made to your vehicle/vessel/aircraft in the United States, Mexico, Chile, Costa Rica, Israel or another Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement beneficiary when it is re-imported into Canada; however, the GST/HST will apply.

Emergency repairs can be made to your vehicle/vessel/aircraft while you are travelling outside the country to ensure your safe return to Canada. However, to be eligible for this special provision, be sure to declare the value of all repairs and replacement parts when you return to Canada with the vehicle.

Transport Canada also has requirements for vehicles that are extensively modified. For more information, contact Transport Canada's Registrar of Imported Vehicles at 1-888-848-8240.

So what defines an alteration or repair in the eyes of the CBSA? Does the vehicle have to be out of commission initially for the change to be deemed a repair?
And alterations? Does that mean the tires have to change the manner in which the vehicle operates?
I always thought tires were just wear-and-tear items.

Hmmm and they mention the word "re-import." I'm not sure if simply driving your car across the border, then coming back counts as re-importing. Sounds like you have to export your car first to count as a re-import.

The store that I usually go to is this one:
Discount Tire Co- more info

2721 171st Pl NE, Marysville, WA, United States
+1 360-652-3198 () ‎ 3.9 mi N

It's the exit right before the Seattle Premium Outlets.

I'm actually thinking of doing a road trip to Portland over the next long weekend to pick up the tires (save on taxes!!) Group buy? LOL
I wonder if they carry Continental ExtremeWinterContact...

And why don't you use the one from Bellingham?

918 Lakeway Drive
Bellingham, WA 98229
(360) 647-0583

Looks like they don't have them but may be able to order them...

Any specific reason why you use that one instead of the two closer ones?

Does anyone know what kind of taxes I'm going to have to pay if I buy tires from Discount Tire Co?

*Edit:
Found out that tires are tax exempt. Excellent.

Very nice.

Hahaha and you're right, I should specify. No taxes when you buy at the shop but will probably have to pay taxes/duties at the border.

Looking at both TSB shipping and The letter carrier, TSB is just pure rape if I ship my tires/rims there.

Do you guys have any problems the TLC when it comes to shipping tires/rims? Their prices seem very attractive.

I was at Discount Tire yesterday and I paid taxes on my tires. Was I not suppose to? Didn't pay any when crossing the border back though.

Here's the PDF explaining taxes:
http://dor.wa.gov/docs/Pubs/ExciseTa...etailSales.pdf

Hmm now I'm a little confused. I think if you're shipping you're exempt from taxes but if you're not, you'll have to pay taxes.

Did you go the one in Bellingham?

If it matters, I went to the Discount Tire in Burlington, not Bellingham.

AFAIK, BC residents are not exempt from paying taxes in Wa. state. http://www.bellinghamherald.com/2010...exemption.html

Don't like the fact that TLC may leave your tires outside... and that they are quite disorganized. What's an extra $2 per tire?

At the time i bought my RT615's from them (February 2010)... the only credit card they accepted from Canadians was American Express. So shipping address was to Pt Roberts and billing address was my home address in Burnaby.

Out of curiosity, did you have them install them as well?

If so, what was the cost?

Yea, I had them install it. $16/tire, $64 total.

Tirerack has my tires $10 cheaper. I'm wondering if I can call DT and have them price match and return the difference over the phone.

I just called them yesterday to see if they could order me some tires. Dealt with a guy named "Ricky" who said that he'll call me today morning. I hope he calls back before 12 otherwise I'll have to go follow up.

They are backordered until like mid Nov. Lame.

Time to call the other three.

Just FYI,

They discount tire co takes into account shipping when price matching.

And I ended up ordering form the Burlington store since the Bellingham store said it would be Mid Nov till I got them but Burlington said it would be 3-5 Business days.

They do not carry them per se but they can order it for you.

I was quoted 560.10 for all 4 tires + install. I gave them a 50 dollar deposit. Did the tirerack 97/tire match then they included shipping of 12 dollars each. So like 110/tire.
