    I sold my old avus and shipped them using http://www.parcel2go.com/ for around £40.

    Can't remember the weight right now but did post it somewhere on the forum once, will try to find out.

    Thanks guys ! sorted it out anyway now.
    The sellers sorted it out using royal mail ! :S ... haha so to make things easy ive took him up on his offer.

    And for anybody's info... so ive been told anyway, he said they weight 22kg all together with tyres.
    so roughly 5.5 kg a wheel, with tyre .

    Ill prob get corrected by someone now but please do it would be interesting to know ! :) haha

    5.5kg...don't think so :)
    Team Dynamics PRO1.2 in 7x17 weighs around 7.5kg so i'm almost certain that the avus is heavier ;)
