Need to ship some wheels, where can I get boxes?

Will wheel stores give away boxes? Or am I going to have to buy them from somewhere?

back then when I sold my 19" VS-XX it was nearly impossible to find boxes that fit a wheel/tire combo...but if you're just shipping wheels..im sure you can find some wheel companies/retailers that will give you them or sell them to you for cheap...i've had many local shops offer me boxes at the time, but sadly they didnt fit...

if you fall into the wheel/tire combo scenario..you could get some foam piece and cardboard pieces to cover the face and bottom of wheels...get some packing straps..make sure it's tight...then wrap it with those industrial clear wrap..that's what i did...and I believe a few vendors ship wheel combo's that way too

That is the best way to ship wheels with tires mounted. If only wheels, pick up some boxes at the Container Store.

I have tried a couple times to find somewhere that sells boxes big enough to fit 19" wheels and nobody sells anything close. Your best bet is to find something that is around 20"x20"x20" and then just cut it and modify it.

Go to your local public storage and buy their closet box. It's enough to fit 2 BBS LM in 19x9 and 19x10.5 with 265/30/19 & 235/35/19 Michelin PS2.
