Hey there, Well the shipping estimate came in at 94.13 per box (2 wheels in each box) for UPS ground, so the total shipping would be 188.26. The total price would be 338.26. The shipping is more than I thought it would be; Let me know if you still want them.... If so you can pay through paypal with a credit card or bank account to my email address . Once I get the funds, I will ship the wheels

shipping is a bit on the high side divide by 2 and that would be more like it..

Call a wheel dealer in the same area and get a shipping quote from them. Remember that big boxes that weigh a lot are expensive to ship. In the climbing world we used to have to pay close to $100 to ship a crash pad that only weighed around 13 pounds due to its "Dimensional" weight.

Go to the ups website or to the usps website estimate (high) on the weight as input the two zips. See what it comes out to and call him out if he's screwing you.It's not like you're ever gonna see the guy and if u do smack him for trying to screw you

Shipping sound real high to me. Could be because of the box (2 per box) and because it's oversize there is a surcharge.
I just got 4 steelies for my Suburban (16x8) from Summit. 4 boxes, each at 36 pounds. Shipping was free..No way would they have covered it if it was that much. Oh and they used UPS ground also.

I got 4 Titan steelies shipped from FL to LA for $60
Had another fro spare shipped from CA to LA for $17
I shipped an X steelie to mcampana for about $16 from LA to OH.
***These were all Fedex or DHL

So figure about 15-20 per wheel... if he packed them all into one giant box the dimensions may significantly increase the price.

OR.........! OR! Order them from jim at shrockworks and then you wont get them for 7 months , but you can stillpay for them up front.
I feel like you are the guy in your avatar and those bottles are going to burst shortly. I read your other post and that sucks.

yes, I agree with the rest 180 is way to much.

I shipped 4 steelies from TN to CA. Each box weighed 36 lbs each. I used DHL, which is the cheapest, for $28.40 a box.
