What\'s the best way to send tires?

Anybody shipped tires before? I'm looking for a good way to send tires from CA to MT. I've seen UPS deliver tires to the local tire shops, but it seems like they want a small fortune (like $25 a pop). There has to be a better way.


Thanks in advance,

Maybe you could find a semi heading up there that has room.

You could try a LTL frieght company, like Roadway, ABF or another. I would band them to a pallet and shrink wrap. It should not be as much $$$$.

Are you having fun yet????

I've shipped 2 different sets of 33" tires. First time cost $70, second time $81.00

They went ups, but I shipped them from work, we get a good deal from ups because we ship so much. See if someone around will ship them through their work or at least give you a quote. All they did was put tape around each individual tire and then put their sticker with the bar code on each tire.
