Contact an iTAN dealer today to store your tires and keep them in the best condition possible, so they are ready to hit the road next season!

The Importance of Keeping Your Tires Properly Stored

As mentioned above, it’s easy to assume that just stacking your tires in the garage when they are not in use is proper storage. The truth is that keeping your tires in the best condition possible take a little more than that.

In order to make sure your tires will be ready to go next season you should always:

  • Clean your tires before storing to remove any dirt or debris
  • Store the tires in a cool, dry, space that is free from direct sunlight and protected from the elements
  • Tires should be stored in a temperature controlled space, so they don’t get too hot or cold
  • Ensure tires will not come into contact with any solvents, fuels, or other liquids while in storage
  • Keep your tires away from any external pressure or tension to prevent them from cracking
  • Rotate the pile of tires every four weeks to ensure equal pressure on all sides
