    Where can you get these at? The plastic half inch wide ones that are melted together or the metal half inch wide ones that require a special tool to clamp down. I took a set of rims into ups the other day and they said that tape and small rope was not good enough, yet they had no solutions except put them in a box, which i don't have either, and they are already taped together so i would rather just find the straps. Or if you guys have any other solutions, write them down. thanks

    Office max/depot possibly one of those Mailboxes etc. type places? :shrug: Or you could try using one from a lumberyard.

    you can get generic metal strapping from like kragen or pep boys. it uses a bolt and nut to tighten down the metal straps.

    Try the Packaging Store line of franchises. They have better supplies than Mailboxes Etc. See what they have for that tie-down strapping.

    thanks for the fast replys and ideas guys. i think i'm going to run out to the lumber yard and see what they can do for me, cause i'd like to send these rims out today and i can't find anyone else locally that has these things
