I too am looking to purchase some Hunt wheels (probably the Hunt 40/50 Aero Disk Wheelset) around May, providing they have some in stock at that time. These will be imported into the USA and shipped to Washington State, The price of the wheels in US dollars is $1031 according to Hunt’s web site. Via their website link I have searched the US Customs web pages to attemp to discern what the import fees might be (beings they’re over the $800 duty free tax limit). This was a two hour investigative task which I could not find anything definitive regarding import duties on imported bicycle wheels. I found things on derailleurs, bar tape, etc. though.
So for those of you in the US that have purchased Hunt wheels, what was the approximate duty tax you had to pay? And I’m sure you had to pay state sales tax on top of that?
Were there any additional fees or charges you had to pay such as shipping costs?
