HPI makes one that looks good, more info at the HPI site... (sorry, no link for that product, you should need to wander a little on the site).

All the years I've on racing I figured that the best tyre holder is one of the boxes that comes with our cars unassembled. All my tyres are protected from light, dust and other agents.

Crystal Light containers. Perfect size for sedan tires. I put a zip tie thru the axle hole of all the wheels (it kinda acts like a stick) so I can pull out all the tires and none of them get stuck on the bottom.

Pringles tubes can fit in about 10x26mm tyres.

I wouldnt waste the money. I use the trusty old sandwich ziplock bag. Perfect for a set of tires and then put them in my car box.

Also, if you check out Take Off, they make a huge box with spacers in it for tires, check it out at http://www.powers-international.com/...ex-english.htm

its pretty cool, check it out...
