    I bought a second set of wheels and tires for the winter and was wondering the best way to store my other set. Is it ok to keep the wheels and tires stacked for a prolonged period, or can they not be resting on each other? Was thinking of a product like this. [​IMG]

    I use these and then store them in tire racks. [​IMG]

    Isn't it hard to use each and every time?

    Velcro holds it together. Unvelcro and the tire rolls out.

    Why do you even need a cover for them if they are stored in your garage?

    Something could fall on the wheels and scratch them?

    You could rub up against them as you walk by, getting your pants dirty. You should clean your wheels before putting them in storage anyways.
