Wheels are inherently quite tough, QR's out, someting strong to stop the spindles busting through the cardboard.

Cut down a bike box. More expensive to post but piece of mind. Bubble wrap around hubs.

Yep, this is what I've done in the past. Cut the bike box in half. Pop the wheels in one half and then slide the other half of the box around them.

You end up with a very square, very strong box!

You know, another reason why I like this site is because threads seem to appear just as if by magic, I arrive at a quandry and there is the answer!

Thank you guys, Wheel box will be made, 'tis only a single wheel but it's going to get a box.
