One of the most convenient ways to store your winter / snow tires in the summer is with the Tire Rack Tire Storage Rack. I have two of these mounted on the back wall of my garage. This allows me to store my second set of tires, as well as my wife's set in the off-season. We both run Blizzaks in the winter due to the lake-effect snow we receive here in South Bend. However, we needed a better solution for storing them once the warmer temperatures arrived.
With a weight capacity of 400 lbs. the adjustable rack quickly attaches to wall studs to provide a convenient and safe storage method. And while storing in the basement may be a more ideal solution, this well-engineered solution helps me organize the garage and keep extra tires and Tire & Wheel Packages out of my way. It has freed up space on our garage floor so I can store more in my garage than I used to be able to.
Keys to storing your tires:
- Keep them off the ground
- Store in lower humidity environments
- Away from direct sunlight
- Away from electrical motors
