Usually if I'm storing wheels for the winter, I drop them in a trash bag and stack them wheel upon wheel on a hard surface. eg garage floor. I seperate the wheels with peices of particle board. Usually a square peice, just a bit bigger than the tire does the trick. I got this out of a HotRod mag and have been doing it for the past 5 years. I don't know what kind of difference it would make without the particle board inbetween. Maybe its just superstition

Cool

I stack them on top of each other in the kitchen & put 2 big cutting boards on top. Great conversational item.

Just don't stand them on end, especially if they have tires mounted. Lay them flat.

"On end" = "On tread"?

I keep my race wheels and tires stored in their original boxes in the basment for the winter. Layed flat nothing on top.

I keep my snows stacked in a shed unmounted.

Two are under my TV and the other two make a table in my living room. Put a board on top and a little table cloth(to keep girlfriend from comlaining) and you have a perfect little coffee table..

Question How do you guys store extra wheels?

I know there are bunches of members that keep multiple sets of wheels/tires for winter/rallying/autox/whatever. I'm curious how you store the set that's not in use? Do you just stack them and forget them? Use any conditioners/preservatives on them? How about keeping them covered?

I'm thinking of investing in a seperate set of winter wheels and wanted to get ideas on how to feed and care for them

moo.

Trash bags are the best. Stops bugs from nesting and keeps the rain away. I've also been told that it preserves the tires by protecting the rubber from UV.

I had put mine in my wife's horse's stall, but that only lasted a week. Now they are stacked up in the old barn. =) Living on a farm has its advantages.

If you are storing them over the winter or just in between events, give them a good cleaning, put them in black trash bags, and stack them in the corner of your garage. You shouldn't need to take any extra-special precautions.

Thumbs up

That's using your head. Who needs to buy a table when you can buy an extra set of wheels! At least the wheels can be put to some use!

My spare wheels are still at my brothers house they have been their for the past five yes five years. Everytime I go round he ask's me to take them with me, I just laugh and say "next time" After all what are families for If its not to store some old cr*p you don't want. Try it yourself you will be surprised what people will hang on to for you, just don't laugh to much when you ask them.

Well, for many years I've gone by 'mooman'. (See http://mooman.com/brianb/moo.htm for the story there, if you're curious). But the last few sites I signed up at had already given out the 'mooman' user name so I had to chose something else. 'DoctorMoo' sounded like a cool play on 'Doctor Who' so I've been using it on various sites now. *shrug* Maybe I should go back to 'mooman', but now it'd probably just confuse people here.

Personally I keep them stacked in the corner of the breakfast room. Two of them are in bags, but only the two that I have to put in the back seat. Thanks for the other ideas though. My wife has been wanting a coffee table for the living room. All I have to do now is come up with a piece of plywood. I'm sure she'll love it. I'll blame you guys if she gets mad.
"But honey, they guys on the I-Club message board said...."
I can't tell you how many times that's gotten me in trouble.
