    Where to get parts in Canada

    Hey guys, are there any Canadians on the board? I'm from eastern Canada myself and I can't find any good places to get parts. A lot of things I can't find at all and the stuff I can is ridiculously expensive.
    I see rims on "Tire Rack.com" for $215 but they don't ship to Canada and anywhere that does charges something like $380 for the same rim. And that is just one example of things like that.
    Can anyone help me find a reasonable place to get things like Rims, Air lids, cold air kits, decals, all the general performace goodies that we all want.

    If not in Canada (or a US place that ships to Canada) then perhaps I can make a trip to northeastern America if someone can recommend a place that is likely to have good service, decent prices, and parts on hand.

    Thanks a million for any info.

    You're in NB, you are fairly close to the border... for tires, you can have them shipped to an installation place just cross the border... customs will never know you installed new tires.
    As for other parts, I ended up just ordering from the US... now with the strong CAN$, it's worthed.
    Check if there are any similar companies to these that will make you save duty$.

    I know these are close to the Lacolle border, ie, 45 minutes from Montreal... maybe there are similar ones close by your border crossing.

    btw, welcome aboard, fellow canuck

    Interesting...so there are companies that will accept deliveries and then forward them across the border, that would be a good way to deal with American companies that won't ship here.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Tire Rack ships to Canada. When they ask for your zip code in checkout, enter your postal code. They even collect taxes and duties up front so there's no COD. pretty cheap shipping, too.
