Should tires be stored vertically or horizontally?
If possible, store tires vertically rather than stacking horizontally to reduce stress and tire distortion. Also, place on a piece of clean wood and not directly on the ground.
How do you lace stack tires?
How to Lace Tires for Delivery

What is the proper way to store car tires?
How to Store Tires to Avoid Dry Rotting and Prolong Their Life
- Clean and dry tires thoroughly before storage.
- Keep the tires out of the sun.
- Store tires in a cool, dry environment.
- Keep each tire in an airtight plastic bag.
- Store them vertically or horizontally.
- Remove tires from vehicles that you’re storing for a long time.
Is it OK to stack tires?
If you have to stack your tires, try not to stack them too high to avoid them toppling over and damaging themselves. However, if your tires are mounted on the rims, you should store them stacked, not upright. Also, hanging them from hooks is a great storage option.
What is one disadvantage of tire siping?
There is a lot of engineering and performance testing behind modern tread design, and many think that there is no need to modify it. It is also said that after-market siping could void your tread-wear warranty.
How long do tires last if not used?
If not used, tires last for 6-10 years, depending on the storage and environmental conditions. Overall, the time limits for stored tires are much the same as for tires that are being used.
Is Concrete bad for tires?
It’s true that concrete tends to be alkaline, but unless it’s powdered, sprinkled over your tires, and constantly exposed to wet-dry cycles, it won’t do any harm to your tires. The amount of tread that will disappear due to chemical reactions is trivial compared to the thickness of the tread.
How do I stop my tires from cracking?
Try to avoid exposing your tires to direct sunlight, or keeping them outdoors in any conditions (dry or wet) for extended periods of time. If you’re storing tires, keep them in the garage away from windows and direct sunlight, or indoors if at all possible.
