I would say your price looks pretty good.

Sure

But actually I used to be able to send wheels for about 7 quid a few years back

Cost of shipping in the UK has gone up quite a bit in the past years

MyHermes, £6.50. Check the dimensions against their guide but I use them all the time, with and without tyres.

Think I used my hermes last set I posted, just put some guess numbers in and parcelfarce came out cheapest at £8.70, sure I paid less than a fiver last time I sent some.

If you have the wheels packed, just weigh and measure the package and pop the details in on the Hermes and P2G websites to get prices :wink:
