I'd like a set of PSSs, but maybe buying them 2 at a time is cheaper?
These are awesome tyres. I got set of 4 staggered 18's for my M3 in for $1205 including freight and bank charges. Because the goods were worth less than AU$1000 there was no customs/GST etc. Local price at the time was more than double this.

The problem with doing them two at a time is you pay almost the same freight twice depending on the value of the tyres themselves, this may actually prove more expensive. You also run the risk of customs noticing what you're doing and sting you anyway.
