How should tyres be stored?
Proper storage can extend tyres’ life. They should be stored in a dry, dark, and cool space, with a temperature between 0°C and 15°C. Tyres should be protected from rain and moisture to ensure that water does not condense on the tyre's surface. Tyres must be protected from bright light, electric sparks, solvents, oils, and grease. Tyres are to be stored loosely in order to retain their shape – they can be piled or hung from the rims. Tyres should also be protected from knocks. If the storage location is too warm, the rubber compound may dry out and the rubber will begin to crack off the surface. Before storage, wash and inspect the tyres. Note: Some tyre dealers offer tyre storage for a fee; ask your local retailer if they provide this service.
