How much to ship rims?

Hello folks, I've got a set of rims back home, all boxed up, ready to go, i'm ready to use them and i'm debating weather to drive home (10 hrs each way) and get them, or have em sent down.

I know no one knows the exact price for me, but how much have you guys paid to ship rims?

My Ride: reclining rear seats
Gas for 20 hrs of driving is going to cost more than it will to ship. Even if it is a draw, I wouldn't spend 20 hrs in the car to pick up some wheels.

I shipped a set years ago and I seem to recall it being about $30-40 / wheel. I'm going strictly from memory...which isn't great

It depends on who you use as the shipping carrier but it should cost around $100-$160.
