Questions?? Proper Foam Tire Storage

I just realized I have more sets of foam tires than I will use in quite a while. What would be the proper way to store them so they wont go bad? Put them in a ziplock bag? Tire sauce them and then put them in the ziplock?

......this reminded me-my TC-3 has long be stored away;but jus' before being stored, I had cleaned the foams with Simple Green(ya' know it's that degreaser spray) and i had removed the wheels from the car and placed the in an air tight container. Upon reading this thread , I opened the top and lo-and-behold a light scent of mint [from the spray] was still detected.Yes , the foams still seem not to be dried out.
I'd suggest the zip lock method , also keepin' in a cool/dry place out-of-the-sun in the mean time.

There's always that option.
