No, shops here that normally don't stock those items, but since they are vendors/businesses, they can sometimes order things and have it be brought on via a bulk container to a business address as opposed to a singular item delivered to a residential address. Shipping costs between the two can be significant. Sure it is no mainland prices, but it'll be better than what you are seeing.

Have you also picked up the phone to call those online vendors? Sometime the shipping costs calculated online for HI is on the high side just so they don't lose too much to shipping. Sometime having someone look in depth can yield a better price.


Iím on the big island. Iíve tried contacting Tokyo auto to see if they had something in stock, so far no answer. Iíll probably have to call them but Iíll check Shade Tree.
Itís just ridiculous on ordering stuff from the mainland.
Thanks.
Iím thinking of getting rims from DiscountTireHawaii since they gave me a quote to ship a set of rims with tires for $320
