Where to Get BBS or Volks Rims Locally?

Given that our loonie is dropping like a fly against the US dollar I am not sure if its that much of a deal to head down south to get rims...

Anyone with experience know where I can get BBS or Volks locally or within Canada?

The volks come from the U.S. Anyways, so even if you buy them new locally, the dealer is bringing them up from the states

^ Yes, and their cost has gone up so the retail price will be adjusted accordingly. Good luck buying anything with our dollar

Depending on your car / specs, you can also look for used ones in other forums.

I totally want these for my GTI... but currently going through big life changes, so I can't even justify spending on wheels right now

BBS LM - 1150 shipped to west coast.
5x114.3, 17x8 et35

BBS LM071- 5x114.3, 17x8 et35 - VW GTI MKVI Forum / VW Golf R Forum / VW Golf MKVI Forum / VW GTI Forum -

Also, DriveHard sells Volks. Many years ago, I recall their prices were surprisingly good, and they had room for slight haggling etc. Not sure about now, with the USD conversion rates.

Craigslist and forums would be best bet for rims now that our dollar is crap. If you want brand new though, Drivehard in Richmond is an authorized dealer for volks + work wheels

There's a year end sale going on for Advan, Rays, some Volks, and Work wheels right now. With Work wheels our shop price doesn't really change with USD because we don't get them from the states, but everything else since they come from the states, the price definitely got jacked up pretty hard. I believe shops can either get Volks from either the states, or Japan. Not too sure how CAD -> YEN works though
