For those of you who have tried ship wheel+tire to other states.

What is the best way to ship the wheel with tires? Did you pack it up yourself?

thanks

Ive shipped them two diffrent ways...the first individual boxes with packing peanuts and fedex ground..which cost around 30 with the box and to be shipped halfway across the country...

So the second time my friend did it for me and put 3 in one box and 2 in another and ending cost around $400, but it was because it was shipped with reg fedex 3 day not ground and the boxes were so heavy...

I covered the wheel faces with cardboard cutouts, then wrapped the wheels in cellophane packing wrap. Then I taped the shipping invoice to the wrapped wheels.

you dont even have to do all that, just use packing tape and tape two tires together, and put the packaging slip on the tape....thats wat i did, and if you ever order tires from tire rack, thats how they come

I just called a local freight forwarding company. They shipped my 19" wheels and tires for $150 from LA to NY. That price included them boxing and protecting the rims too.

Just use Fedex ground. Get boxes that fit and put some extra cardboard on the face of the wheel. You can put some on the rear if you feel like it.
