Default Storing tires

Well I'm getting my summer rims put on and I'm just curious what exactly do I have to do when storing my tires till the winter then vise versa, I'm gonna be putting them in my shed which is ingested unairconditioned. What's the best thing to do to avoid them gotten cracks and damages

Default Re: Storing tires

I searched "Storing auto tires".
Depends on if they are mounted or not. Stand them up with at least 10 lbs pressure if they are mounted.
I think they are assuming they are un-mounted on the sites I looked at. Stack them but no more than 4 high.
Don't put em in the shed.
Seems the most important thing is to seal them in tire bags or opaque plastic bags to protect them from ozone.

Check it out;

Default Re: Storing tires

I've been storing mine in the garage laying on their side stacked five high for years with no problems. I've been told that storing them standing up can produce flats spots but I can't confirm that.

In any case, the most important thing is to put them somewhere out of direct sun light and exposure to the weather. If you cover them, you could put them outside but make sure they are not sitting directly on the ground. Put them up on some 2X4s or something.

Default Re: Storing tires

Your shed is ok , just like Sgtsandman said stack them on top of each other .

Keep out of direct sunlight - getting hot or cold via direct sunlight or snow and ice
Flat spots can develop due to the weight and rims , as I have a friend that plows and has 2 sets of tires on rims . He stores them in his shed all the time stacking them .

Simple common sense stuff and you'll be ok ....

Mine are stacked 4 high on their side sitting on a pallet with a tarp covering them. They are mounted on wheels, and I did this last summer with my winter tires and had zero problems. In fact, I left 35 PSI in them when I stored them, and when I pulled them back out, they only lost a pound in each.

I was told not to store them standing straight up and down because they will get this going on:
