Re: Wheel and Tire storage

Inflate each tire, bag each tire in a dark garbage bag, secure the end of the bag, store/stack the tires in a controlled enviroment room away from sunlight.
You could visit MailPak, UPS Store, or FedEx, and get a desicant bag for each bag to keep them dry.

Re: Wheel and Tire storage

I have a follow up question, is it better to stack the tires on top of each other on the floor or should they be side by side on a shelf?

Re: Wheel and Tire storage

If just the tire/wheel, you can stand them upright and not worry about flat spotting.
I generally stack them on their sides.

Re: Wheel and Tire storage

store them bolted to the car. it's easier.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?

Re: Wheel and Tire storage

Black bag is a great idea, ozone in the air will also attack the rubber so its best to make sure that the bag is sealed from outside air as well.

I would NOT leave them on the car, they will flat spot. If you are forced to leave them on the car for longer than a few months at a time I'd crank the PSI up to the maximum written on the sidewall, just make sure you lower it back down before you drive it.
