Good to know. felgenkatalog puts DSIIs at 9.994 kg and 10.49 kg front &rear so I figure that plus a card board box should be closing in on 50 lbs.

UPS sells heavy-duty double-walled boxes that are 18x18x18 for like $3 each. Put some padding between the wheels and you're good to go.

This looks like a good deal on some bottlecaps. He says they aren't pretty but the pix don't look too bad to me and his is asking only $100 for the set of 4.

I spent 80 on the bottlecaps I sold my car with. Came with pretty good tires, so 30 isn't too bad for just a junk set. Maybe snow tires if your region is into that kind of thing

Yea the whole set.

I paid $300 for my minty bottle caps, but they had virtually brand new Toyo Observe snow tires on them, which is why I bought them. The tires alone were worth much more.
