Just like that, but you may wanna cut out & tie a circular piece of cardboard to prevent the wheels from scratching. That's how Tire Rack ships things, so it's good enough for me.

Thumbs up

I agree. You might also want to tie them all together so that they don't shift around a bunch during shipping, too. I believe Discount Tire Direct does it that way, along with the cardboard between each wheel.

I think tire rack does it 2 at a time tho. Something about the size vs. weight thing. You might want to price it each way and see what the results are. It'll be damn heavy with all 4 tied together...

If you are using UPS you need to keep each parcel under 70 lbs or else the rates go sky high. I ususally keep each wheel separate and tape cardboard discs on each face of the wheel.
