As far as I know the charges for bring ing stuff in if you get caught is
21.5% of (the cost of shipping plus the cost of the item) plus a fee for collection of the customs charge.
with an post this charge is around a fiver, with UPS or any of the courier companies it could be 30/35 euro so it's in their interest that you get stung for it.
If the value of the items is under a certain threshold, there is no duty due. I'm not sure what this is.
I have gotten wheels twice from these guys
first time the value of the wheels marked down as 34 dollars without me asking. Second time I made sure to ask, but it may have been marked down anyways without me needing to ask.
hope that helps.
