  1. Make sure your wheels are clean and dry before packing them for shipping.
  2. Place a sheet of foam 2 cm larger than the wheel on each face, fold the excess and tape it to the wheel to avoid scratches.

What is the best alloy wheel and tyre delivery service for large quantities?

How can I know if my wheels and tyres will be transported by air or road?
As a rule of thumb, whenever the destinations are connected by land, your wheels and tyres will be transported by road, except for urgent deliveries that might involve air transport.

All mentioned packaging materials can be found in stationery or hardware stores. For packing wheels in boxes for shipping, you can use new or used cardboard boxes as long as they are in good condition. Please consider the weight of the items when selecting your packaging materials to ensure your wheels are well protected for shipping. The cardboard box needs to be sturdy and all materials should be able to withstand heavy items.
