Best/Cheapest Way to ship wheels???

Anyone ship wheels as of lately, recommend a place to ship wheels??? Preferably a place that has cheaper prices....

I already got quotes from UPS and FedEx and I'm looking at $400+ to ship! I know everything has gone up in prices, but damn last I checked it was $100 to ship 4 wheels at least.

I always take them into a UPS store for ~$25-40/wheel

It depends what size and weight i just shipped 4 wheels. The women who measured them and wheighed them asid they were 26x26x11 which makes no sense but anyway they were each 50 pounds and the total was 160.

Haven't shipped in a year or 2, but yes, fairly recent. I don't think shipping expenses have gone up that much.
