Shipping wheels & tires overseas...

Anyone have experience with this? What carrier would you recommend? I have a guy in Indonesia that wants to buy my 22" HRE's. I know there has to be some better options than Fedex/UPS... The fedex calculator came out with $2600, which is ridiculous. I am sure someone has done this before, and done it more economically. I would really appreciate some feedback/suggestions.... TIA

Try DHL. They are the carrier of choice overseas. To ship some wheels from the states Singapore was only 370USD

DHL's quote online said $3700 if I remember correctly. It is large items though- 22" wheels with tires. Weight is about 70 lbs each and boxes are like 30*30*15. I am trying to see if I can get them there for like 1-1.5k...
