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.
