    Default Storing tyres

    Guys,

    Just before the clocked Vectra was found out, I bought 4 virtually new Pirelli's which I stored in my garage. The Vectra I am buying has 3 new budget's 2 x Nexen N3000 one Sava Intensa plus one 4mm NCT5 on.
    Do I store the Pirelli's for another year to 18 months?
    Put them on the car and flog the the budgets?

    Oh and look into getting a full size spare and use the NCT5 on that.

    Used tyres will lose their value, therefore keep them in storage for up to 3 years (from date of manufacture)
    Store them for no more than 4 weeks on each side

    Wear the current tyres out, putting the odd ones and ones with least tread on the front
    As they wear out swap them rear to front, that way they replacement tyres will be fitted in pairs, plus also maintaining the maximum average tread on the car

    right now they are standing as I don't have room for all four to lie flat but I can make room and think I will keep them, move and circulate the budget's till worn out then replace them with the Pir's
