    Default How to store tyres and wheels

    Hi everyone

    I'm thinking about getting another set of alloys and tyres for my car ...
    Question:

    How should I store my current alloys and tyres? in the shed on their side?

    Thanks

    laid flat with the inside of the rim down first. Place a sheet of carboard between each rim to prevent them sratching each other.

    If youre really lucky, put a sheet of round glass over the top and use them as nice coffee tables in the lounge

    Well thats my storage for the winter sorted, Do you think welds would mark the alloy, or would they just buff out ??

    Keep them in the shed, out of direct strong sunlight (?) and out of the extreme cold. The material deteriorate quickly (relatively) in direct sunlight and cold.
