Jas , start the biddin at bout 175 & put "buyer pays all Courier/Postage costs at the approiate rate"

Also put " My reserve is not that far above my starting price so get yer bids in NOW"


(And set the reserve at bout 250 ish )


Ok ???

Starting price etc depends on how much you expect / want to get for them and what condition they are in. If you set your start price too high no one will start bidding. Often best to put a fairly low starting price to attract interest but set your reserve at a more sensible price.

It would be a good idea to contact a courier for delivery costs as this could be substantial - they will need to know the weight of the wheels. Normally the wining bidder pays for delivery / postage. It is usually better to display the expected delivery charge in your auction when its likely to be expensive so buyers know where they are.
Or you could recommend buyer collects - local buyers only perhaps.

or you could just sell them as collection only and offer a small discount off the postage encourages people to travel for them
