I was unsure where to post/ask this question. I figured since they are old school tuff's some one would have experience shipping over seas. I have a set of coaster brake tuff 1's on ebay and some one wants me to ship to japan. What is involved in shipping to japan? Can I or do I ship USPS or best choice to ship with? I don't mind looking into it but don't want to make a lot of work for myself either.

I have USPS for overseas many times. You may want to check on shiping costs for two boxes as well. Your LBS may have some wheel boxes.

The smaller the box the better, you could use one box though. My friend shipped some mags to AUS recently, he took the axles out so he could get the box slimed down more. I would also use USPS.

If you ship it using paypal it automatically loads up the correct customs form, remove axels if the buyer is ok with that it will save some money. I ship tons of stuff to japan never a problem, just make sure to pack them with plenty of padding.

oh and yes USPS is the ONLY way to ship there that is cost effective.
