Tire storage

5 posts in this topic

I am very curious to see how you folks store your winter tires and summer tires? I stored some very nice tires last fall and when it was time to swap em out I realized that they are now cracked. I had them stacked in a unheated garage. I think it is a big possibility that stacking them was a mistake

I now have my winter tires standing up and there is no contact with the tires besides the concrete floor. I really need to keep these tires healthy. They are for the wifes car so I really need them.

I also am having the same problem on my motorcycle tires. They were installed last summer and I have put on 7000 miles and I just noticed that there are now cracks between the treads. I did have it jacked up with the tires off the ground.

What am I doing wrong?

I don't have any experience storing tires for passenger cars but when we store tires for our race car we take the centers out of the valve stems and give them a quick shot of wd39 too keep them from drying out. Not sure if its relevant here but it seems to work ok.

I've only ever seen cracking on the camping trailer tires and they stay outside.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
