Subject: [CR]Help re shipping rims

i need to ship several pairs of (on-topic) rims. i only have a couple of boxes and i have to figure out how to get or make more boxes. before going out and finding a place to buy plain cardboard sheets, i thought i'd ask y'all for any alternative shipping suggestions.

has anyone shipped rims without putting them in a box? i think the post office will accept them, so it would just be a matter of wrapping them with protective material. any horror stories about this method?

if there is any other tip, technique or secret method that you can share with me, i will appreciate it.

thanks in advance
