I had a set shipped to me by Yellow Freight. He put the set of four (4) 35x13.50x18's on a pallet. Shipped from PA to Tx...was $200.

I ship a lot of things through UPS, Fed Ex and freight companies and I think that you will find due to the overall size and weight of the wheels you will not be able to ship for under $150.00. Your cheapest option will be Yellow, Conway etc but the price will be over $200.00. I learned this the hard way myself not too long ago.

Greyhound will probably be your best bet.

Ok so Greyhound is a no go. Maybe you can find someone headed in that direction that has room on their truck. Whatever you do don't use the UPS store or FedEx kinkos. They up charge big time. If you use UPS or FedEx go to a hub not s store. Maybe create a account on uship.com.
