Question Best way to ship wheels?

To anyone who has shipped or received wheels: how do they come packaged? One to a box, two to a box etc. Any special packing material? And are these boxes available? I need to ship a set of wheels after the holidays. Any opinions on the best method would be helpful. Thanks for the help,
Robmat

best way to ship wheels is two wheels to a box. Use 2 individual boxes strapped together as one. I would recommend using Fex-Ex.

Don't know if this helps you but that has been my way of shipping wheels for a while.

My P1s came one to a box, with two boxes strapped together. The original OZ packing material of molded foam inserts for each wheel with padded plastic over that was exceedingly thorough.

I'm thinking a local wheel place should be a good source for boxes, unless someone knows if wheel boxes are some sort of standard size.
