If you have plenty then id put them in a plastic storage container, tends to keeps them fresh over a long period of time. This is my own observation.

I have at least 15 or so shoeboxes in storage. I usually only bring 1 or 2 to the track. Organize by car and track type...

I have 2 of these for my 1/10th scale truck tires with today's quick change wheels it makes it easier to try multiple tires in one practice session.




These are made by JAC Products and they're web site is here: http://www.jacracingproducts.com/main.html

A box usually works for holding stuff, why not tires! Find a box thats been thrown away or you can buy one. Maybe one of those plastic clear things.

For 1/10 truck tires, a one gallon zip lock bag works great. Buy them at the 99cent store. We used our kit box for a long time until we out grew the box. We carry 24 pairs of truck tires and 10 pairs of buggy tires in a large duffle bag. You never know what tire and compound works at each track.
