    WTB: 14" JDM wheels

    I'm on the hunt for a set of 4, or pairs of jdm 14" wheels. pretty open to various sizes, but something ssr, work, or the like is preferred.

    Im in Vancouver, and am hoping to find something local, but if someone has something and wats to ship, that could work too. (or if someone wants to help me import a set that could work as well.)

    I've used zenmarket as a broker for a full set of 19's but they charged $600 for shipping because they were so heavy, but they got to me in 2 days i kid you not. literally "overnight parts from japan". PM me if interested. they have some kinda promo to give discount for new members by referral.

    Use contact in Japan and ship via Air Canada Freight. (There are several members on here who can hook you up possibly). Then drive out to the Air Canada hanger location at the airport to pick up.

    they told me 45kg for all 4. so that's about 25lb each which seems about right. They used UPS to ship.

    I would say zenmarket is great for small items that can use EMS to ship. I got a bunch of small things for my ls400 way cheaper on yahoo japan than ebay. Like clear corner lights. $150 on ebay. $30 on yahoo japan.
    .
    ...and If anyone wants a free 500yen they can use this link to register http://zenmarket.jp/en/?affid=4123FF88

    there's a bunch of other brokers out there though. I'm still looking for one that does wheels via sea freight which would be the cheapest to ship but take a couple months.

    Rinkya will do sea freight for wheels. At least they'll quote you a price for sea freight.

    Worst case scenario, ship to my place, and I'll forward them to you via Japan Post. (Wheels only, I can't deal with bumpers)

    +1 for Aaron, I've dealt with him on buying and shipping an item from Japan. Highly recommended!

    Assuming 15000 grams per pair of 14 inch wheels, Japan post charges 8500 yen for shipping by sea to Canada. Their sea estimates aren't too bad if you have to repack the wheels.
