Yup, that's why you shouldn't be posting personal details and pictures of your car and asking about stuff that's basically illegal because you never know who's reading your thread/post.

Because of NAFTA, you don't pay duty on tires made in Mexico/USA.

You are supposed to pay duty on tires made in Japan/Korea/Russia/Mars/Jupiter...

And you are supposed to pay HST on all tires brought across the border.

Whether or not they tax or charge you duty at the border is another topic.

As mentioned above, there is no DUTY on items made in North America, but there is still TAX.

Gas that is in the gas tank of a car is not subject to customs. Only gas in portable containers is.

Go to states on some junk wheels.

Pick up new wheels.

Have new wheels installed on car, take a nice long drive on them, dirty them up.

Drop off shit wheels at junkyard.

Buy something to declare at the border.

Roll over the border, no shit wheels in the trunk to be questioned about, and any attention is given to what you're declaring and not the wheels.

Don't forget to rip up the receipt for the wheels and drop them in the nearest recycling bin before going across the border.


Not saying that I've done it, or that it's smart, but that's how you get away with shit.

Im one of those people who bring tons of shit over the border and never pay a penny in duty or tax,

I just brought over my drag slicks and the girl didnt even care about them.

depending on the item, there are methods to get everything across without ever getting pulled over.

I think the largest dollar $ i brought back was 5 grand worth of stuff, and I didnt get pulled over.

The only time I ever paid tax was on 1 tire a few months back, because we came back to canada at night time, I couldnt see who was in the booth and I picked wrong.

The first step to successfull tax evasion is being able to pick the right lanes/border guards at the booths, look in the window and see if its male / female, and which race ect ect,


I figured it was just common knowledge by now

^It's not tax evasion if you are declaring everything legitly and the agent waves you through. Unless you are saying that you smuggled in $5k worth without declaring? Surprising to think that they didn't bother to tax you at $5k.

I have heard through the grapevine that CBSA can gain access to your credit card records to determine how legit your story is. Cash is king if you want to not have a paper trail as mentioned earlier.

As for forgetting an invoice or its only online, CBSA can just hold the item for 30 days until you bring in a valid invoice, and they can do everything in their power to make sure that it is a true invoice and not doctor'd up. They have computers there but they will not let you use it to pull up your invoice to show them. If they are having a bad day, it is your responsibility to prove that the invoice is full on legit and by the time it gets to that stage, I find most agents are pretty good at telling whether you are legit or trying to pull one on them. Back when Pt. Roberts was tight assed about everything, they have checked my Ebay invoices in the past with what is actually online to make sure I didn't falsify the dollar amt, actual item, etc etc.

All of this hassle and headache worth it to save $150 on $7k worth of stuff? IMO no.

Had the same thing happen to me too. I was bringing back some suspension bits from the US for a friend in Hong Kong. The stuff only came with a packing slip and parts number but no prices.

The CBSA guy just googled the parts numbers and used the lowest prices he found. In the end, it worked out to only $35 in taxes but it was a hassle and it seemed like he was upset cause it was cutting into his donut stuffing time.

The time before that, I bought some used from Washington and I had no invoice for them since they were private sales. The CBSA guy asked for the for sale thread to see what the price was to compare it with what I declared them to be.

Not worth the hassel IMO.

By the time you can see into the booth, isn't it too late to change lanes by then?
