: : : Can anyone recommend to me how to proceed with shipping

I tried twice to ship inflated tires UPS and got read the riot act for doing so. They even have a sign posted showing no inflated items. I thought this was kind of stupid, but went along with their request so I didn't have to take the items home. Maybe Tire Rack has a more forgiving UPS office.
