    Shipping Heavy Wheels?

    Bros, I need some advice. I need a set of wheels for my Jeep, so im thinking about buying them from ebay but the fukn wheels are cross country. Has anyone ever shipped something that heavy (500lbs or so, I imagine the set weighs because each tire alone weighs 76lbs). If so what was the best way to get them sent? Any ideas?

    something that heavy you are going to want to ship freight. UPS and Fed EX would be astronomical...

    I've had a lot of car parts shipped, generally by freight. Ebay, you'll have to specifically tell the seller what you want to have done, either that or he'll do it his way, which might be fine, might not be.

    I work for a Wheel company, we ship mounted tires and wheels for about 100-200 depending where they are going. You can figure the cost your self at http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/index.jsx
    Don't worry about the password you dont need it to "Calculate Time and Cost"

    But how do you go about getting all of tires shipped for so cheap? The weight limit on a package from UPS is 150 lbs. These tires are alot heavier than that combined. Seems like I would have to ship each tire as its own package. Let me know what you think.

    cheapest way is called forwardair.. its airport to airport shipping . you have it shipped to the closest airport and you go there and pick them up. tires dont have to be boxed or anything but rims would have to be boxed or crated.
