Have the tire taken off locally, unless it is necessary
for us to see the tire. Shipping charges are usually by weight,
and a tire adds a large amount of weight to the shipment. If you
must ship a rim to us with a tire mounted, the best way is usually
to deflate the tire, cut out cardboard circles the size of the wheel,
and tape them securely to the front and back of the rim, wrapping
the tape around the entire package.
Pack the rim in a box
just slightly larger than the rim. Use newspaper or cardboard strips
to pack around the rim and prevent it from moving in the box.
Print out our shipping
invoice, fill it out and place it inside the box or in an envelope
taped to the outside. Alternatively, write down at least your name,
address and daytime phone number along with any instructions for
what you would like done to your wheel, and tape the instructions
to the wheel or box.
