Yup, I used Hagen's went this afternoon, I got 17" X-Ice 2. They emailed me and Tirerack shipped my 4 tires in 2 packages, so Hagen's only charged me for 2 packages. I saw some other tires lying around that were shipped individually, so some people might get charged for 4 packages.

Canadian customs didn't even charge me any taxes, I just declared everything and the chick told me just go and have a nice day.

You lucky SOB!

I had mine shipped in 2 packages too hence the weight of 42lbs each according to UPS.

Are you having them install it in the states?

OR are you just going to bring it back up?

If you're installing, where are you heading to?

Only asking because I'm planning on picking up on Sat.

jcwhitney.com has General Arctic Altimax which are a very well regarded winter tire, especially for the money. They price match with competitors, and ship direct to Canada for a very reasonable cost (~$40-50 usd for set of 4 tires). The kicker, their shipping cost to Canada INCLUDES HST and enviro fees and what not, no idea how they do this. But on a set of 4, HST would usually run you $40+

I can get a set of 4 in 175/65/14 for about $280cdn all shipped to my door, including tax. For reference Canadian Tire sells the same tire in my size at about $130/tire reg price, plus tax of course.

I'm not sure what other brands and models they carry, but may be worth a look for those who are still thinking of ordering.

I bought 2 sets of tires from discount tire and they ended up shipping me the wrong set. So I called them and they gave me a credit back for the price of 1 tire. I kept the set because they were similar. They sent me falken 512 instead of the 912 that I ordered.

did you try to book a time with discount tire?

there's a Les Schwab in bellingham across from bellis fair on meridian street. there's also sears and walmart, but i don't know if any of them are any good.


i don't think costco will do it, but you can always try. they told me that if you want them installed the same day it's best to go first thing in the morning. since it's really busy right now.

aite tires shipped to the letter carrier friday. The only thing i hate about letter carrier is they store tires outside. Anyone can steal your tires. Theres no gate protecting and nobody watching and plus its WET on the inside the tire.

Drove up the point roberts border, guard asked me how much the tires were (i didn't get the receipt so i just claimed $210). He looked at me looked at my passport and said OK your good to go

Bellingham seems pretty booked however Burlington has a very open schedule.

I think I'll give Les Schwab a call tomorrow and see how much things are going to cost first.

No duty makes sense because of the free trade agreement in place for NA.

Taxes though of 12%, yikes! How much did that turn out to be?

And yes, planning to go to Burlington and just install it there and shop around when they are installing.

30 cars at point roberts? that's crazy. they were so busy they probably just let everyone through.

i went to peace arch. tons of customs agents working. enough resources available.

Bump!

General question regarding tire/wheel sizes: Is there a way to find out the width of the wheel without knowing the brand/model? The wheels are mounted on 285/30zr20 tires right now and I want to know if 255/35ZR20 tires would fit on there without problem? Reason being the 285 tires are on backorder but I want to get the tires a.s.a.p.

Check on the back of the wheel, it should list what size it is.

Do you have it with you or is it being sold somewhere?

I have it downstairs. I'll check in a bit but I just want to make sure a 255 would fit without overstretching..
