Just an update for this thread -
I ordered a set of rims and tyres through BarvarianX, door-to-door via UPS.

Yet UPS is still demanding customs brokerage fees despite paying for Door-to-Door delivery:
Customs Brokerage charge = $125.00 (if you elect to utilise UPS brokerage service)
Terminal Transfer on Airport = $110.00
Import Service Fee = $99.00

This is before CV duties and such.

So it seems door-to-door delivery does not always spare you from Customs rapage fees.
