Why Should You Store Your Tires

As the seasons change, so do your tire needs. Many drivers switch between winter and summer tires to ensure optimal performance on the road. But what do you do with the tires that you're not using? While you may be tempted to just throw them in the corner of your garage, there are certain do's and don't when it comes to tire storage. Storing tires improperly can cause damage and decrease their lifespan, wasting your money. In our article today, we'll examine the advantages of seasonal tire storage and how our auto repair shop can help you keep your tires in good condition.

Why Should You Store Your Seasonal Tires

Tire storage offers several benefits, including:

  • Protection from damage - You should hold your tires in a climate-controlled environment that protects them from damage caused by extreme temperatures, sunlight, and moisture. 
  • Convenience - Storing your seasonal tires with a professional auto repair shop eliminates the need to find space in your garage or basement. You won't have to worry about transporting them back and forth.
  • Increased safety - Storing your seasonal tires ensures that they are in good condition and not to be tampered with.
