Default Storing your Foam tires

Wrap them in electrical tape? It doesn't leave residue, and keeps your foam tires new.

Well form my experience.

Ziploc bags and/or Tupperware. Also, keep them somewhere dark. Open air and UV rays are to be avoided.

Next season, give them a wipe with lighter fluid before the first use. Dry them off, apply your favorite traction compund, and race.

i also use zip lock bags, but i buy mine at a store that specializes in bags( no joke). i get the bags that will holds a set of four and just before i close the zipper all the i force most of the air out the then close close the bag. that has kept my 12th scale foam in great condition.
