Tire Shipping Suggestions

I need to get a set of 5 tires and rims from DC to RI. I've shipped tires separately via FedEx by simply attaching a label, no problem, but these are much heavier and would be killer to ship. Anyone have ideas on how to get mounted tires (255/85) to RI?

Anyone heading that direction need some decent gas money???

Thanks!

Greyhound - did it once from Maine to Colorado and was the cheapest i could find.

Or the Rover express if there are board members heading that way.

Just checked Greyhound and it looks to be about $157 for 5 tires/rims. Not too bad.

Sounds about right - not too bad at all given the size of them.
