Freighting wheels from the USA - who to use?

Guys,

I am looking at a buying a set of wheels from the US but the freight seems pretty expensive, AUD$1200 - $2000. I don't need them that quick and would be happy to wait 2-4 weeks.

Any recommendations?

Those prices are absurd, almost sounds like a quote for a pallet, even then that's still absurd. I work in freight, just get your seller to send them in their boxes, shouldn't be more than 100 each...

Everywhere I have checked is a minimum of ~US$1000. the wheels are packed individually in boxes, but they are too big to post the rears. The front could just be posted at US$300 each, so still too expensive.
