Checked quote on USPS shipped to Mesa, AZ and it was $54.....UPS was $88! Highway robbery.
Probably better off buying a set from STG at $326 with the $50 rebate. That's a pretty solid deal.
When I bought my Dunlop Q3+'s, they were running a $40 rebate, only took a few weeks for the prepaid $40 card to come in the mail.
I have a 2013 NC700X. Need to get a new set of tires. Anyone have any suggestions. I'm willing to spend the money on a good set I appreciate the help... Thanks Joe
Did you try getting a quote for just the tires without a box. The shipping label can go directly onto it. Might save a few $$$

Heard they stopped taking tires not inside some sort of packaging. Easiest thing to do is wrap them together with shrink wrap and slap a single label on it, but I'm not sure they let that fly anymore. Plus it would be near same dimensions, as they still charge by overall length width and height. I'm not sure how USPS calculates it, but I know UPS calculates girth = 1 x longest side + 2 x width + 2 x height.
Oh well, probably not good enough of a deal to ship anyways. If I was to sell cheap enough including shipping to make it a good deal, I'd be virtually giving them away.
I can't remember the last time I got a tire in a box; tires always come bare lately, even car tires.
Obviously commercial tire vendors get way,way better rates than you'd get walking in to a shipping center trying to ship a tire. I could order a $66 front tire like I use on my NC from AMT right now, Wednesday evening, and probably have it Friday morning on my doorstep with free shipping. They can make a profit selling the tire, plus pay for the shipping, and it's only $66. The shipping must be cheap for them.
