Default Tire Storage

I am looking for some ideas for a nice way to store my tires.

I have done the OEM ziplocks, but they typically only hold 2 tires. Then I moved on to the large ziplocks and that worked ok, but it can be a PIA to dig through a box of the bags to find the right set.

Thats the best tire bag I've found holds 15 sets of 4 (60 tires total)1/8th buggy tires. Proline makes a nice one also but doesnt hold as much.Dialed Inc. makes containers that include cans to put each set in and then label the can.

I just use big zip lock freezer backs from the super market as the important thing is to keep the tyres sealed away from air and ozone which degrades the rubber. I'm sure those Gucci bags are very nice but I can't get them round here so the big freezer bags do the job for me

I actually use one of my old kit boxes; It holds 5 complete sets of buggy tires nicely and is easy to store/transport.

dollar store Ziploc bags and a duffle bag. I get the bags with the lables on them so I can write what tire and compound.

Used to use a piece of wooden rod and a body clip to hold a set of wheel. Easy to handle and no risk of mixing up wheel sets.

I use one of these.....


Holds 10 sets of my truggy tires, 13 sets of my boy's buggy tires and 8 sets of my daughters SC tires. I cut some scrap plywood to make a flat bottom and dividers so everything fits nice and snug without messing up the foams. When I pack up for the race, I put my starter boxes, fuel jug, and misc other crap on top of them. One big nice easily rolled around. And the cut outs on top are perfectly spaced for a buggy so I bungee cord the cars to the top.

Also don't forget to clean any residual dirt off your tires prior to bagging them, apparently prolonged exposure to dirt harm the rubber.

Just get a plastic tote box. You can get them as big or small as you want depending on how many tires you need it to hold. Prices range from $10-$80.
