Default Carrier for the extra wheels

What are you guys using to carry your extra wheels to the track? I'm currently using a bucket i used to clean the tires with but this doesnt keep them organized, I've seen some type of strap but not up close so id liek to see what you guys use..... thanks

I use the zip lock bags and then put them in a plastic box I pick mine up from walmart for like $5. You can get the box as big as you would like work great.

I use aka tires so I keep them in the bag that they come in. To carry them to the track I got a duffle bag from wal mart.

Seems like amain sells some kind of plate with a rod attached to it to stack them on. What you do though is get some wood dowel and cut it to the length you want, drill a small hole in each end and put cotter pins in both ends. You can cut them same length as the tire stack or leave a "handle" on the end about 4" long. One dowel rod should make at least 3 holders for 4 tires each. Easy and cheap.
The 2 gallon bags are excellent idea if you are using any kind of tire prep or conditioner to keep them fresh until you use them.
edit
Can't find the tire stacker now. Was also just thinking that most guys at our track with lots of tire sets use a milk crate. Use with my idea to keep them organized. Stack them on a stick and throw them in a milk crate or school locker organizer type of plastic box. Like http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...ct_id=11034717 but maybe get a couple at the dollar store.

I understand what simple green does for tires but what does wd40 to, from my understanding wd40 takes away water, would that not hurt the tires? I kno when i use simple green in seems to make the tires more sticky and soft.....

I used wd40 on my tires for a track that they soaked and I know it would dry out like 5 mins into the 30 min main. So i put tires on that would work good when dry buy not good when wet. I soaked them with wd40 and it kept the tires from caking up with mud and becoming slicks.

As for a hauler bag I use the Losi duffel bag and the racers edge tire sticks to keep pairs of tires togeather. I have an upgrade bag that is great too, its huge. If I am storeing the tires for long periods of time then I put them back in their AKA or Proline bags that they came in.

Here are the links>>

ya I first saw the kart guys doing it they would soak the tire with WD40
then wrap then in plastic wrap to keep them fresh and soft is seems to work
so I do it now and just like Frank L said in the above post it will help keep the mud from caking on them on a muddy track
