I emailed Patrick (Canadian contact) at dipyourcar and he said the prices are higher for the following reason: "We can only ship the Canadian formulated Cans. The plastidip made for Canada is roughly 60% more expensive. It has to be reformulated and relabel to be in compliance. Cans are $15 each."

So the $26 Wheel kit (4 cans of black plastidip) sells for $60 in Canada.
And each glossifier costs $25 a can!
The gloss wheel kit (per the image on the website includes 4 plasti dip and 3 cans of glossifier) sells for $50.
4 cans for 1 set of wheels? I used a can and a half. $45 at the Homehardware store. WTF would you go all the way to the US for that? Spent 5 hours on the road and $25 on fuel to save $20
