Just a consideration.....if you are using the "stack" method with rims, place two 2x4 pieces of wood on the bottom before stacking.

So it's time to take my winters off and put the normal tires back on.

This is the first time Ive had a winter set needing storage.

Since I'm going to use the method found here in this thread (stacking with rims) I was curious if anyone has an opinion on whether or not to "condition" the tires before storage.

I will clean the steelies and the tires thoroughly and dry completely prior to storage and placing in some storage bags from TireRack. Alternatives? Large debris bags ?

Is there a best practice you folks follow that includes Armor-Alling the rubber? Use a tire cleaner specifically designed to condition the rubber for long term storage?

I'm open to all suggestions as I'm unsure of the efficacy of slathering a chemical on tires while in storage.

So...

1 Should I condition?
2 If yes, what should I use?
3 What are the thoughts of storage of said tires stacked and covered in the rafters of a garage as opposed to on the floor of the garage. I'd prefer rafters but tell me what's wrong or OK about it. Too hot? Tires dry out quicker? etc.

Appreciate any and all opinions since I'd can't find anything in the 12 posts here that answer my questions. Even TireRack doesn't specifically answer my questions.

TIA

Mike

Other than the method of storing (stacking, standing or hanging), I can't imagine leaving tires in storage for 8 months at most will have any adverse effect on them. Just leave them as they are.

Thanks for the reply.

I did find a page on the TireRack site that bolds the words

DO NOT APPLY ANY TIRE DRESSINGS. Tire compounds are formulated to resist ozone cracking or weather checking.

should about cover it.

This pretty much covers it.

Now I gotta put my tires sideways after I get off work. Thanks for the tip.

I don't think I did a good job storing my old tires(that I am getting rid of anyways). I had them put in big plastic bags at Kal Tire after I got my new tires on, then just stacked them together. I didn't check for a long while until I found them blown into the neighbour's yard due to the winds and the bags slashed by the raccoons living nearby. I think there is also water in there as well. I truly am terrible at this.

By the way, how hard is it to sell used tires? Just curious.

You will be remembered.
