Default Tire box with Cans

I'm trying to track down a tyre box that I've seen, but I can't remember where, and can't find it on the net. Basically, it is a cardboard tire storage box that actually held a whole bunch of cans, with pop off plastic lids, and each can held 4 tires in airtight goodness.

Can anyone tell me who made the box I'm talking about, or where I might find it?

Cheers, Chris.

You could just get the Take Off tyre box for $15AUD and use swanchich zip lock bags to store each set of tyres and keeps nice and fresh.

Works for me anyway.

Hey Newracer;

How do the Tires come out of the can. Do they slide out easily or do they hang up inside sometimes?
I'm using Bags now, but Cans sound a lot neater and organized.

Thanks,

They get caught up a little if they are individual but I also put mine on those tire sticks (I think that's what they are called) then they come out fine. I also wipe out the can with a little simple green to get rid of all the residue from the chips.

Several times at the track I have had fellow racers come to my pit and grab the can expecting to get a mid day snack!

Thanks, I'll give it a try.
