    i'm trying to find the cheapest way to ship 4 tires/rims for my car, from chandler, AZ to new orleans, LA.

    the four tires/rims weigh about 32 pounds each.

    suggestions, please?

    I shipped rims/tires from Chicago to LA. I taped some cardboard to protect the rim surfaces and brought them to FedEx Kinkos. I think it cost about $30/each? This was back in 2006 when oil was quite a bit cheaper.

    FedFex offers freight shipping now. You might want to contact them and ask what items or weight class qualifies as "freight". If they say wheels/tire are ok, then at least you can ship them all at once. I think the max weight you can ship through UPS is 75lbs.
