Delticom AG/ReifenDirekt.de: Tyre Storage the Right Way. But what to do with tyres which are not needed for the time being? Careful storage is required so that they can be used next season. Some drivers decide on a professional and convenient storage at a workshop. Others, however, choose to store tyres in their own garage or cellar.
Pay attention to the right temperatures
Extremely cold storage places are harmful to the tyres in the long run. Experts recommend a suitably heated and ventilated storage place. The ideal room temperature is between 15 and 25 degrees. Direct sunlight as well as warm heaters closely next to tyres should be avoided. In addition, it does tyres good if you increase their pressure by about 0.5 bar above the manufacturer’s usual recommended pressure before storage.
Tyre check before storage
Tyres and rims should be given a thorough cleaning before storage. When tyres are clean, a driver should make a thorough check of the rubber. Is there any visible damage such as cracks, cuts or bulges? Does the tyre already look porous? If any of these are present, the tyre is not fit for storage but only for disposal as waste.
Tyre storage in a nutshellIf possible, store tyres upright and not lying on one another. Storing on a wheel tree is recommended. Before storage, clean tyres thoroughly and check for any damage. Measure the tread depth and replace tyres if necessary. Mark the tyre with chalk: "F" for front, "R" for rear, as well as "L" for left and "R" for right. Increase the tyre pressure to slightly above normal (by around 0.5 bar). Choose a dry and well ventilated storage place. The ideal temperature range for storing tyres is 15 to 25 degrees. Avoid locations near windows of directly next to heaters.
