Shipping Wheels\Tires to someone. Best way??

Anyone know of the most economical way to ship 4 wheels with tires mounted to someone. UPS, Freight, etc. Trying to figure out if I should box them up, just wrap them in something. These are Rally wheels with Firestone Red Stripes.

Thanks
Ray

DHL is the most economical way ive done, put two together plactic wrap (red line to the inside), you can drop them off at a DHL port or call them and they well pick them up from your home.

Ray,
I've used both Fed-ex and UPS to ship wheels and tires. Fed-ex was cheaper when I had time to drop them off at a staffed facility. I have not used DHL, yet. I've shipped wheels/tires with bubble plastic and cardboard covering the face of the wheel and dropped them into a heavy black 33 gallon trash bag, then taped securely with clear packing tape. This has always worked well, as boxes are not always available. Good luck.

i have used ABF freight for shipping a pallet of stuff before, dropped it off at their terminal.

Another member here just shipped me a rear seat using Greyhound fairly inexpensively. I think he mentioned he had shipped wheel/tires in the past using them.

That was me! I like Greyhound for large(r) items like seats and wheel/tires. Or Trailways.
