    Hi,
    Anyone know how to best package/wrap a 17" Alloy c/w tyre for delivery ?
    Is it best to deflate the tyre ( less weight ) and anyone suggest means of del from Manchester area to South coast.
    The buyer will pay up to £25 , will that cover it ?

    TIA

    Best way is to get a load of bcardboard boxes and flatten them all, wrap the cardbaord around the wheel and tyre and then construct a box around it IYKWIM, parcel tape isn't up to the job so use a heavy gaffer tape or a glue gun.

    parcel2go will take it for less that half your quoted price.
