Title: What's the best way to ship a Rim/Tire?
Post by: kwells on May 09, 2008, 10:49:38 PM
I've ordered tires online a couple times now and they just band them together and drop them in the mail.
I'm thinking I need to box this up though. 

Any suggestions?

 :) It is partly to help keep mailing costs down...a box with tire's in will measure more than the tire's when banded together!!! Just use cable tie's on them, shrink wrap and ship out...

hmmm...will have to see if I can locate a shrink wrapper.

It is the whole rim/tire combo complete with the rotor.  you think shippers would take issue with that?

I picked up a discarded shipping carton, from a furniture store and cut it down into a suitable box.
The disc will need some protection anyway, they will bend if the wheel is dropped. Ask me! UPS tosses my stuff over the fence all the time ,if the gate is locked.
