awaiting an email from them to confirm if they send to NZ but wondered if some people on here might know if they or any other do in fact send internationally.

Cheers

yeah the tyres are a pretty sweet deal huh. Mine are looking to be around 77 each. How did you find out whether they shipped internationally or not?

beeker - just got an email reply from the one I sent yesterday - they do send to New Zealand. Just sent them back my address etc so they can calculate shipping. Will let you know how I get on.

Got a quote back from the guys - all up for 4 tires it and freight it will cost NZ$650 + 80 for gst = NZ$730

I was being quoted 290 per tire in NZ ex of gst so would have been close to NZ$1500 to get them in NZ.

For shipping, you might find lower rates if you have a business address, or can convince someone to let you use theirs. I find most US companies that ship bulk items will ship them cheaper that way.

If you don't mind me asking, how much was the final cost of bringing the wheels over (incl freight)?

Not a prob dude. $1500 all up including tax off $120 into the country. The guy from tunershop.com - Ingo - put on the invoice they had a total cost of only NZ$900 so then I didn't have to pay as much tax and no duty at all.

I went to pick them up on Sat but customs hadn't sent the fax to NZ Post saying the wheels were cleared - wasn't too happy about this so am seeing them today and having them picked up by my courier and delivered to Firestone in Parnell to hold them till I get my tyres.

What ya think - should I go ahead with getting the tires from the states? NZ$750 vs NZ$1500?

Here are the wheels - what ya think?
