    <font color=purple> What is the best way to store a set of 35" tires that are mounted on rims for the winter ? Are there any ways that would be bad for them ? I have a brand new set that I haven't put on due to other projects and I more than likely won't put them on until Spring now but don't want to find out that one has a huge bulge in it or something due to the way they've sat for a long period of time ............ Any thoughts ??

    I usually just lean them against the garage wall, with a canvas tarp over the top of them, and rotate them a quarter turn every couple of weeks. Our winters obviously not as harsh as yours, but it works fairly well.

    the best way to store them is standing upright, if you stack, the bottom tire can get seriously funky. If you must stack them flat for space reasons, try to rotate them regularly, so no one tire spends any length of time under the weight of the other three.

    BTW, nice pics of your new floor.
