Dunno - even if one went to a pack'n'ship place, and they put each wheel
in a separate box, it's hard to figure out how they could get it up to
$50/wheel with a straight face.  unless the guy got quoted for second
day air or something.  For instance I could ship 60 pounds to CA (from
NH, much further) for just over $30.  Add a $10 box and $10
profiteering, you're still at half what he quoted you.
