    That sounds reasonable for a shipping cost. Unfortunalty it should have been made clear during the ordering process.

    Then why delete the contents of the post??
    (Besides that your title and immigrant jokes are both in poor taste and ill informed)

    Wheelers charges you what it costs them to ship what you order....That's pretty fair considering most places overcharge for shipping-and if you were order wheels....Big and heavy are two words that come to mind.

    That's interesting...Jokes are usually funny. Those both sucked.

    It's not a pissing match until you make it one assclown. Wheelers is a good company that has done some pretty nifty things for folks around here. Throwing out an accusation like that and then deleting you post is a piss poor showing.

    Now- Pretty much any one who reads your post for "info" won't get anything out of it cept you are a whiny lil girl.

    If you PM me the ZIPS on both ends and the weight of the packages, I will run the charges through my corporate account so we can see what a typical charge would be.

    Oh boy...here we go...I must have hurt your feelings....All I wanted to do was inform people of what Wheelers charges for shipping and then they leave it out when informing you of the total...

    Agreed.

    Agreed.

    Agreed.

    And I think we all know that it costs much more to smuggle a person than it does to ship a set of wheels. :devil: :crapstorm:

    I think he was trying to raise awareness of human trafficking. I got here after the deletion, so I'm not quite sure.

    Nope- I don't give much of a fuck what you have to say about...well..anything.

    If that was your intent you probably oughta have posted that up....and maybe backed it up with some info (Like what the charged you and what it would have cost else where...)

    Did you ask what the shipping charges were? If not, then it's kinda your fault. I had them run the shipping charges before I ordered from them and the charges were quite reasonable.

    Hence, my offer of comparison.

    Depends on the method and the smuggler. If you want a more indepth PM me- I used to work in federal LE doing this exact thing.
    Edit: Doing this exact thing is the wrong wording...Working AGAINST this exact thing is more apt.

    If you are talking about technical threads here- Your theads have all been kinda lame really. Cause they have all been about your rims...and they've all been answered before.

    Plus none of those had offensive titles or your d-baggery...
