    Pulled of a 1968 but I don't know that they were original to the Jeep. Stamped 10 30 by the stem hole.
    They aren't too awfully rusty, all the same size. Two look like they were white when new. One has a decent dent in the rim on the outside but it would pound out fairly easily. All four were holding air but with tubes (as originally intended), the area around the stems on at least two has rust and pitting on the inside so would want some sandblasting and putty if one were going to go tubeless.

    I have space in Santa Cruz and Fresno, CA and happy to coordinate a meet in either lace or in between those.
    Shipping, I don't think you want to go there but I'm guessing $200 to ship them to the lower 48.
    Price, I'm not sure what's fair... $160 the set?

    I like those rims. I'm guessing those are from the early '60s; no hubcap nubs, and no safety beads.
    Too bad you're about as far away as we could be for shipping. Any chance of looking into shipping costs to Tavernier, FL 33070?

    I'll weigh them when I get a chance. With the weight and dimensions it should be easy to get a price.

    I'm guessing they weigh 28 to 29 pounds each.
    Should be stamped inside the rim directly across from valve hole.
    Either #873 or something like #50223 i forget

    I won't have a chance to weigh them for another week but assuming 18X18X14 box and 60 lbs (boxed as pairs), looks like USPS wants $121 for each pair to ship across the country (your zip may vary). Shipping from a business address in 95062 in case you want to see if UPS or Fedex are a lot cheaper, I tend to find they are pretty similar for most things.
    Still cheaper than what I paid for a set of re-pops from India back when I needed wheels for my pickup. :-(
    I have heard of people having good luck with Fastenal logistics, seems like it's risky for breakable stuff but rims should be fine. I could palatalize them for that setup if needed. Blue Lane Freight 3PL (Third Party Logistics) | Fastenal

    Is anyone heading out to Cali for the Rubicon trip? I might be...still holding out hope but it is behind a number of other priorities so its kind of uncertain - but if some ecj5 member could bring them to the Rubicon, then maybe I could bring them back for you....Would be asking a lot of the seller right now to have to wait for uncertainty, but if they haven't sold as we get closer to summer, maybe we could arrange some ecj5 transport....

    "Hey Hon - I really have to go run the Rubicon in July so i can bring back some wheels for Doug."

    ups and fedex do up to 150lbs without going to freight. I think it would probably be cheaper in one box.

    Teletech is working on boxing up 2 rims/box for me. I would think 4 rims in a box would not survive the trip at about 120 lbs.

    Could you check with the Les Schwab Store in Santa Cruz, about sending them into Prineville, OR for sand blast and Powdercoating, and drop shipping them to the Independence , OR store?
    That would get them shipped and restored in one trip. Brian
