    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.

    Ship it to a reputable moto shop...... find refrences on ADV or Horizons Unlimited.

    Or ship it to a reputable hotel...... one who is moto friendly

    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.
