Never shipped any myself but I bought a set of used 325/60/20 mounted on ford oem wheels when I had my 150. Can't say what it cost because he included shipping. He sent them via R&L carriers on a pallet. I was pleased with them. Its also cheaper if you have them sent to a commercial address with a dock. Thats what I did.

I'm curious to hear others experiences using different shipping services.

I recently stumbled upon this gem The Definitive Guide to Selling, Packaging & Shipping Your Wheels, Rims and Tires for when I need to ship wheels last time.

I have shipped wheel/tires trough USPS before. I have put cardboard on the wheel face side and wrapped it in plastic and put a shipping label on it.. I set up shipping online, I got a discount and they picked them up at my front door.

I used TireBuyer, worked out great. Free shipping to a local shop that installed them all for the price listed at TireBuyer. Plus the tires were $20 less per tire than the local shop could get them for. All in all it worked out pretty well. Course that probably wouldn't work in your situation.
