    Hi there, wondering if anyone has shipped these cross country before and would have any particular methods of shipping they recommend? I tried going through Shipnex air, but it seems the weight of the rims/tires is beyond what is allowable.

    Would air/ground freight be a better option? Open to folks advice who have done this successfully. I am trying to ship them from Oregon to Arizona.

    Thank you!

    The last time I received wheels + tires shipped from The Tire Rack (admittedly, it was a long time ago) they came via UPS. Card board cutouts covering the front and back of wheel/tire secured with heavy duty straps.

    Looked just like this:
