Hi All,

Picked up a couple of tyres on ebay UK, need to get them posted to NZ but the seller said the cheapest option in about 45 GBP ? - there's got to be a cheaper way,

any ideas?

cheers

Nope. International shipping is based on volumetrics; that is, both the size and weight are taken into consideration and the package will be price on either the physical weight, or the volumetric weight, whichever is greater.
Tyres are light, but bulky, so unless they can be folded or twisted up to take up less space, expect to get fisted on the shipping.
