There are many ways you can do this.
For the cheap route, for 10th scale tires if you dont have a lot of them, Pringle potato chip cans work for 10th scale tires.
I made a tire box for my 10th scale tires because I have so many. Go to Home Depot<or any hardware store> pick up the plastic carrying cases, and mount small bolts to the case to line up your tires. I store the rear tires on the bottom of the case, and then made a shelve for the top, and store the front tires on the top shelve. Total cost, about $11.00 counting the case and bolts. For my 1/8th scale tires, I use the large sandwhich baggies. One full set<front and rear> will fit in the baggies.Then I store all of the bagged up tires in a large tote box with each baggie taged with the shore of the tire. This keeps them fresh, and they will not dry out.Think I have around close to 200 full sets of 10th scale tires, and around 150 full sets of 1/8 th scale tires, some are at least 8 months old, and still in great shape due to keeping them sealed up.
