Default Shipping Tires

Anyone have any hookups on UPS/FedEx discounts? Trying to get some tires shipped up from New Mexico without spending $600 plus on shipping alone.

Thanks,

Paul

Much appreciated.

For anyone curious, it's two bundled pairs of tires, approximately 60lbs and 25"x25"x25" stacked for each bundle.

That sucks. When I bought my wheels and tires they were shipped mounted and balance, had them in 3 days from Nevada and it only cost 240 to ship.

The crazy thing is I move back here after living in AZ the past 5 years where everything is shipped for FREE. I love it here and all but shipping is a pain. Wheels and Tires for both my cars alone will be almost a grand. Im getting owned.

Some of my BMW parts were shipped via a new method that I never heard of before. They get delivered via a local shipping vendor here in town tomorrow morning. Took about 6 days to get here and saved me some serious cash.

I will check tomorrow. Can you text me the weight and dimensions Paul?

Bad timing. My brother just left Phoenix on Sunday and is on the Alcan now. If you had posted this late last week, it coulda been almost free.

Crude oil, diesel and jet fuel were around 1/2 as expensive in 2007 ($55-$60/bbl for crude). Transportation costs have gone way up in the past two years. I'm afraid this may be the new normal.

Yeah it kinda sucks, I would buy new weeks from there but the 200$ shipping they offer now is quite ridiculous
