....your method (cardboard taped to the face). Think about it. All the UPS guy has to do is drop the wheel on its edge and you have a damaged wheel. This IDIOT sold me the wheels on Ebay and never came through when one of them got damaged. Mail Boxes Etc had warned him that the packing was inadequate. He claimed he had received bare wheels from the Tire Rack packaged this way, so I emailed them. The truth is that they put the wheel (in its original box) inside ANOTHER BOX, with packing in between. Find 4 sturdy square boxes and use lots of packing material. Or be an IRRESPONSIBLE ASSHOLE and do it like Peter K.

Hey guys,

A bit OT, but relevent?

I just sold my 17" rims to a fellow e30m3 owner from across the country. Question is--what is best way to package/ship them? They will not have tires on them.

Thanks,
Jack S.
