Default best way to store stock TR enkies w/ RE92s.

Hay guys, got some new rotas and toyos and have kept (and plan to keep my) stock set up. I was wondering what is the best way to store the wheels? As of now i have them flat one on top of the other in two stacks of two, but is it best to have them half full, full, overfull, exc. Should i try and keep the wheels from sitting on the ground and rest them on the rim someone? Anywho any help would be greatly appreciated.

There have been several threads here disussing wheel and tire storage -- but it's been a while. Here's what I do with my second set: Clean off the wheels. Inflate the tires to normal pressure. Wrap in a large, heavy plastic bag (I use bags for yard waste). You can even use a vacuum cleaner to suck the extra air out of the bag. Store the wheels flat; stacking them four high is not a problem. If you store the wheels in a garage or basement, be sure they are raised a few inches up off the concrete slab using wooden blocks or something similar. This should keep the wheels good shape and prevent the tires from degrading due to cold, dampness, UV, dryness, etc.
