Off season wheel storage

Getting my winter tires on right now and found out my tire shop has raised their price by 50%.

Debating should I stop using them but not sure how the wheels and tires will like to be stored outside under the deck.

I do not have heated dry storage.

Should I wrap them in black plastic bags?

I have floor jacks, jack, and lug wrench.

Would need to get a torque wrench and the rubber cups for jack stands and floor jack.

I would build a rack out of wood so that the wheels are not sitting stacked and are off the ground.

I think, yes, cover to keep UV's off them

I leave that problem for future-me and they always seem to figure it out

I am worried about trapping moisture in the bags however. How about if the tires are covered in all sides by wood sheets with some room for airflow and some holes on the sides up high kind (think a mini shed design).

You could look into tire storage trees. They keep each wheel supported and would allow for enough air flow if that's your concern.

Interesting concept. I have horizontal space but not vertical.

If space is available over the garage door dead zone is good for long term storage.

I'd love that, but all I have room for is two ladders.
The garage is not a tall one.

Back when I lived in an apartment and didn't have the storage area, I used to clean them up, put a circular piece of wood on top, drape it in a tablecloth and have a small end table with my second set of wheels :ROFLMAO:

Now that I have a basement, I just use a tire rack. (That's an older picture, I'm only using the 2 rows now. 1 for the Camaro and 1 for the Buick)

First set of winter tires I snuck in under my bed and thought parents would not notice.

It stank up the room in an hour....

I have something like this too. They tuck in right below my garage door. I didn't have the room to get them above. The nice thing is that my step-stool is tall enough for me to get the tires into the tire loft.
