Fellow Canadians, where did you get your wheels?

I'm looking for a set of 16" wheels, preferably flat black in colour. Living as far north as I do my options are very limited. Can anyone suggest a retailer that will ship to Canada? I was looking on Tire Rack at these Ultra Crushers but hey are backordered: http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/resul...rSpecial=false. I like the Level 8 Guardians too but does Discount Tire ship? Their website only directs you to their retail stores...

I can't tell where you're located here are my suggestions:
1) stealth the oem wheels (I contemplated buying a different set, but once I painted the originals I liked them a lot and haven't looked back)
2) check Craigslist / kiji (I found a killer deal on my Toyos locally on Craig's)
3) call your local shops (kal, fountain, big o tire, etc)
4) go across the border (if that's an option, not sure where you're located)

Good luck.

When I bought my X, it came with 4 wheels.

But seriously, here are a few spots:
1010tires (Canada)
Action Truck (Canada)
Canadian Tire (Canada)
Coast Tire (Canada)
Summit Racing (US)
JC Whitney (US)
and a bunch other in US

Thanks, that's exactly what I needed. I was on their other website. I live in the boonies and the local Kal Tire can't get anything that will fit the X. I searched 1010tires and even checked Canadian Tire but they don't have anything either.

The factory wheels will be used for the snow tires so I need a new set for the summers (stock Rugged Trails for now...). Already have 16" tires so 17" wheels are out of the question. Kal Tire wants $837 for a set of four 16" steelies, mounted and balanced. I figure for that kind of money I may as well spend a few bucks more and get something nicer.

If you buy from a US store, make sure you buy wheels made in North America or you will get hit with duty.

Yes, I am aware. However given that we don't have a lot of choices for wheels (and even fewer if you want black) I can't afford to be picky about where they are made. Discount Tire Direct wants $200 for "Prepaid Canadian Tariff Fees", bringing my total for 4 Level 8 Guardian wheels and a set of lug nuts to $707. I have yet to find anything comparable at a better price.

Have you checked: http://www.national4wd.com/

Their website is hard to navigate at times, you might have better luck contacting them directly.

Thanks for all the input folks. Just called Discount Tire Direct and ordered MB Wheels TKOs in matte black with a set of Chaos 6 center caps and the black lug nut kit. I'll post pics once I get them on the X.
