Re: Shipping wheels???? UPS questions!
OK, but still...shipping 7kg UPS Ground from CA to GA only cost about
$17, so shipping some fairly light wheels clear across the country would
cost less than $80. I think the original poster was in WI, which is
somewhat closer to CA than GA, so even if the wheels weight a bit more
they shouldn't cost $50 each to ship.
Just my $.02
