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.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
