I want to keep my 14" factory style rims and I am finding it hard and expensive to find the size tires that I want 26"x14"x9or8" wide I found that Hoosier has 14x9.5-14 with these numbers but they are going to cost me $700.00 for the pair Canadian.Thanks for your help guys!

Hosier QT pro 26x9.5-14's are $161 in the summit catalog. DOn't think that would be $700 Can even with the exchange rate. Will Summit and Jegs ship to Can? Jegs is the better deal for tires right now, no shipping charges.

Other wise MT makes a 14" slick, ET Drags, 26x8.5-14 for $163. But it recommends 8" wide rims where as the QT's say they will fit on 6" wide rims.


So if they'll ship to Can you should be in buisness.

I priced these tires from the Canadian Hoosier Distributor and they are 350 each and for me to get them from summit is about the same price if you add GST PST Brokerage and any duties that it would cost plus the exchange rate.GST is 7% PST 8% and duty and brokerage fees are not cheap.I have all ready tried that route and it ended up costing it more.

Boy that really bites. Is there some other way to get them into the country? Maybe you could by them "used" from someone in the USA and avoid some of the fee's? I really have no clue how that all works. How far are you from the US boarder?

Yes it really does suck to see parts in jegs or summit and then my cost is almost or more than double. The only way to beat it is if you know someone who is going down to the States and that will save you the brokerage fee. I don't live far from the boarder about 3 hours Toronto Ontario Area.

Maybe you need to go to the Ford swap meet in Columbus OH this April and while you are there, get a set of tires from Jegs which is just across the street fromt he Ohio Fairgrounds.

ship to someone you know close to the border then go across and pick it up, you should only then have to pay tax, no brokerage if it's a made in USA product. my buddy and i did that for his tube bender, but if you have to drive 3 hrs, it might still be worth the $$$ you would save.
