I bought some used rims+tires and they were shipped face to face with carboard inbetween and wrapped in a clear plastic shrink wrap, like industrial cling wrap. Now, I am trying to sell my stock 16" monteals and shipping is a unknown. If I price the shipping with a combined weight of 80lbs for 2 wrapped as discribed above it is $40 more expensive as shipping individually. But if I ship individually I have to pack in boxes and packing expenses may easily reach $40. Anybody?

You don't necessarily have to pack individual wheels / tires in boxes. I cut cardboard rounds to cover the face of each wheel, front and back, and taped them up good. I tossed them in some big bags and sent them on their way via FedEx Ground (by far the most reasonable). This was for 19's w/ SUV tires that each weighed 80 lbs.
