Shipping APO/AE

Does anyone know if wheels can be shipped APO/AE? know there is a 70lb limit, but i was wondering if anyone had done it before.

I ordered a 17" winter wheel/tire set-up from TireRack and I recieved it with no problem.

Like Jive said, Tire Rack will ship the complete set by pairing up the wheels to make one package so that they don't exceed the 70 lbs limit per package. That's how they shipped the tires to me.

I think I've seen your car down at Spang. I'm there every other weekend to get fuel and food.

There are several people here at Aviano that have had wheels and tires shipped here via USPS. One guy with a jeep even had his 36" tires sent without problem.

Yes wheels can be shipped. For normal pricing on shipping each individual package/wheel has to weigh less than 70 lbs. After you exceed this weight, the price goes up and it goes up fast! I have shipped several sets of wheels too and from the USA. My last set of wheels were!

Everyone that I've talked to recommends Tirerack. Alot of friends have bought from there without no problems.
