- $1000 bucks (inc shipping to YYC) to get the tires to the installer,
- $100-$200 spacers for the back,
- rims ($?),
- installation/+fees

Does that look about right?
Just IMHO, but I wouldn't waste money on spacers for the rear. They'll look fine without, unless you're REALLY concerned about a few centimetres...

Also, unless things have changed (and they might have, somebody please correct me if so) in Canada BMW uses the ABS sensor for the TPMS, not a true stand alone TPMS system, so you don't need the TPMS sensors in your order.
