I recently was about to pull the trigger on some Sparco Assetto Gara wheels from Tirerack, but was shocked at the appalling shipping costs to Canada! I knew shipping was pricey, but $590 for 4 wheels? C'mon. So, I resorted to looking at other sites and quickly found shipping would be the deal breaker. Then, I pulled out my last resort in Ebay. The shipping calculator quotes me at $100 for shipping to my door! Before, Rota wheels were a bit out of my price range as I was looking for cheaper wheels like the Sparcos. But after shipping was brought in to the equation, if I were to buy from Ebay, the costs would offset each other and Rotas (which are likely better quality) are more affordable!
So, my question is, what do you guys think of these amazing Ebay shipping prices? Are they accurate, or will I end up getting screwed later with a $500 bill from FedEx? Any personal experience or advice is welcome!
