Default Re: Tires

In 2017 shipping 5 tyres from Coker to Indianapolis was US$86.
Tubes can be sent in a box about a foot by a foot.

I wondered about asking them to put a tube in each tyre, tie the tyres together in a stack and sneeze in each tube to hold it all tight.

Ya got Buckley's on that one I think.
Got my tubes from Jegs. Free shipping to a US to Oz shipper.
Jegs do those tyres with free shipping also it seems.

PS. You may want to check out the price of good quality radial tubes too. You may want to be sitting down.

Coker has their 21'' tubes listed as bias only, but when I quizzed them about it, they said that's what they use for all 21's, don't worry. Don't recall what I paid, but seems like around 15 bucks. Center stem for mine.

My shipper charges by the parcel. If I were to have the tyres sent separately and a box with the tubes as well, that would be 6 parcels. UGGHH!

I can't remember how they were shipped. Tires are usually strapped together with nylon tape. They may have had that industrial strength plastic wrap. Also, are not Brattons tubes radial compatible?
I got 19 inch 5.25 tubes which are expensive.

I recently bought a set of 19" radials and there were 3 pieces. Tires strapped together in 2's and a box for the tubes.

How about a large box with the tyres and tubes inside as well as something else you or someone else needs...like Stipe cam or shocks or? You could then share shipping to Oz.

Where is this shipper to Oz located?

He has a depot in Los Angeles and another in Indianapolis. Hid depot here is at Lilydale - nice and convenient. To put other stuff in the ox, I'd need a place and someone to receive and repack it all, preferably in either of those places. he logistics quickly become too much.

Ask for a quote. Tell him the outside diameter and the weight of each tyre and the number of them.
