    I shipped to Toronto using UPS. And from sask using greyhound.
    Never had any issues, as long as the wheels are packed nicely

    make sure theyre packed really good with something covering the lip. even if they seem tight in a box theyll still move a bit and the lips get box burned.

    If you ship greyhound it will be alot cheaper.

    I shipped wheels from Huston Texas. wheels came in 4 business days and were in great shape!! However shipping, duties, and taxes were quite expensive

    I have used DHL, Canadapost, and greyhound. Greyhound was the cheapest, did not have a problem with anyone though

    Package the **** out of them, or pay the shipping company to package them.
    If something is damaged, the shipper will try to push the blame on whoever packaged it saying it wasnt done properly.. If its them that does it you are safe! (From personal experience with UPS)
