Mailing a tire

Hi!
I got a good deal on a rear tire. The one I have on is maybe good for another 5000 miles. What are the options and rough prices to have it shipped ahead? I have got friends who could ship it when I tell them....Thinking about Central America.

Thanks!

That's a really vague question. Where would be shipping to and where from and what is the approximate weight ? I suggest you pose this question to DHL, UPS, or FEX-EX.

I bet those companies have websites.

You can shrink wrap it, but UPS will charge you extra if it isn't in a box. They charge something like an extra $15.
