It comes in various models and sizes, all similar in appearance; the sizes range from 15-16.5" in diameter and 4-8 " in width.

You state that the item will be imported into the U.S., pre-assembled, through the Port of Detroit, Michigan.

The applicable subheading for the Cam Brake Assembly will be 8708.39.5050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Parts . . . of motor vehicles . . . : Brakes . . . and parts thereof: Other: For other vehicles: Other . The rate of duty will be 2.6% ad valorem.
