Is there anyway to get an idea of the shipping weight on the Rakuten website? I was looking at these wheels, but it looks like the shipping from Tenso can add up quickly. Further, according to the Tenso site, there appears to be a 30kg weight limitation for items shipping to the states.
That's the thing about this process... you won't know the shipping costs until Tenso has your stuff in their hands. Expect to pay around a $100 for something like a clutch, J's or HKS test pipes, or other "medium" sized stuff. Wheels would probably be about the same for each wheel...

The upside is that you get your stuff FAST and safe. I've been very happy with Japanese EMS.

I got mine from RHDJapan, but you can probably do a little better on price by going through a vendor on Rakuten and shipping through a forwarding service. You also might want to check out ORC clutches too. Or you can just go for the HPD clutch, which is the easiest and less expensive option. No idea on it's power capacity though...
