Anyone have advice re ordering wheels from the states

Hi guys Iím constantly looking for wheels to buy for my M3 and I have read mixed reviews on costs , duty and brokerage etc. What Iím asking is has anyone bought wheels from the states lately and if so is there a company I should request for shipping that is better than UPS which I hear is the worst.

Cheers in advance

You can do self-clearance with UPS and avoid all of the brokerage fees:

Cheers, I guess the duty part is just a pill you have to swallow.

I’ve gone both routes, self cleared a set through ups, and had a set shipped to US address in Niagara Falls (free shipping) and picked them up there and declared them at the boarder.
Both was ended up saving me a lot of money.....
