    for those of you that have mailed off tires, what have you found to be the best cheapest way? I notice if you type some stuff on UPS.com you come up with around 100 bux a tire, crazy. but like summit or somewhere like that you can get shipping costs of like 10 extra bux a tire. What have you all figured out?

    I bought 4 35's mountd on H2's on eBay. The guy wrapped each one in plastic and shipped them as individual packages. It was about $25/tire. Problem is that I can't remember if it was UpS or FedEx. either way it might work for you.

    If the tire doesn't fit in a box. UPS charges an additional $15 per tire handling fee. When I sold and shipped my 31's it ended up costing me 180 bux. I planned on 125 because they quoted me $31 per tire, but they forgot to mention the handling fee.
