Anybody have a suggestion to ship some stock wheels and tires? I got a suggestion to pull them apart and ship alone via UPS or put them on a pallet mounted. What's everybody else doing? New 20's on the way via somebody elses packaging. Will post photo if I can get the stock ones out of the living room.......thanks!

You could probably get more money out of them to sell them separately.

Otherwise, shipping would be cheaper and easier to ship them together. There is a furniture store near my house, that usally has a big pile of cardboard boxes behind it. They have some very thick and durable cardboard. You might could find something similar, cut it in a circle slightly bigger than the wheel and the wrap it up. You can leave the tire exposed. Seems like someone posted a pic of this from an internet supplier of wheels and tires not too long ago, though it may have been a different board.

I concur with StealthV's above post. Though its not necessary to wrap them in plastic.

Consider selling them to me, since I can pick them up.
I just bought a set off ebay but they need to ship from Atlanta.
I can work things out with that seller, if you would sell me yours.
You can email me here (v@eluna.info)

UPS sells boxes that are big enough to accomodate 2 f1's in each box. I had a set shipped to me a while ago from texas or CA; the four tires came in two separate boxes, and total shipping charges (I htink including packaging) were around $110.......

I can't help you with the how to part, but if you are wondering about where to ship the tires, I'd be glad to give you my home address. My original F-1's are at 12,000 and getting very very close to those wear bars.

For what it's worth. I recently shipped a set of wheels across the country and DHL was a lot cheaper than either FedEx or UPS. :bouncy:

How much less did it cost you? I will have to ship some wheels in the future and didn't know if I should go with UPS, FedEx or DHL.

Thanks!

I shipped some wheels and tires today and it was like $120 through DHL, they were the cheapest.

4 wheels shipped Seattle to Chicago were $62. I shipped two packages with two wheels (boxed) taped together as each package. For an additional $3 per package, they will pick them up at your door to save the effort of taking them to a DHL drop off point. Anyway the next closest shipping estimate was $84 for the same shipment. :thumbsup:
