    What gives with there shipping? Some people say they don't charge for it but I ordered one wheel for my 3/4 swap so i could start grinding calipers. A $40 wheel is $67 with shipping.

    Yeah, you will run into higher shipping costs with tires and wheels. They are bigger and hevier than what most companies would let qualify for free shipping.

    I had to drive to NTW in Wheeling WV to get my stuff. It was about a 2 hour drive. Try and find a place near you with a good price. If not, biting the bullet and paying the shipping might be the better.

    I just tell them I'm not paying for shipping. They will charge you a handling charge. The salesman will probably consult his manager, it just takes a few minutes.

    I got 4 wheels shipped from Nevada for free, a year ago.

    When I ordered 4 15x10 wheels from them a few years ago I just paid the handling charge..which if I recall was 6.95 back then. I think it is about 9 bucks or so now. Oh well. Where else can you get such good prices and not hardly pay for the shipping/handling and get it so quick.

    Spoke with customer service last night. I told her that I wouldn't pay $30 in shipping for a $40 wheel. So they waived the shipping fee for the oversized/weight item. But i still have to pay the $9.50 handeling fee. I can live with that.

    If you spend more then I think $100 you don't get a handling charge
