Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius!
I have four of them in my garage that were purchased in 2013 when my truck got t-boned. The body shop was only going to replace the right rear tire. Tires on the truck at the time were pretty worn Toyo Proxies. I told them, I don't want no damn mismatched tires on a Lightning, put four on it, I'll pay for the other three. So they found four and here they sit, since I run staggered rims now, with Nitto NT555Rs in the back. They have, maybe, 3000 miles on them. I keep them garaged and covered.Damn time capsules
As far as shipping tires, couldn't they be drop-shipped? I mean, when you send rims to Weldcraft Wheels to be narrowed or widened, they require them to be drop-shipped. Place I worked at for awhile was a drop-ship company, Beaver Express. I delivered motors, tires, transmissions, etc., to residential homes in a semi truck. It was interesting sometimes, the places I had to go in a semi with a 48 foot trailer. Hell, I even had to drive over 40 miles one way, more than once, to deliver a damn box of printer paper to a home in Piedmont Oklahoma, from Oklahoma City. Big waste of diesel fuel just to deliver one box of printer paper.
