Where to store summer rims and tires?

I have my original tires and rims and a set for summer. Is it better to keep them inside all winter or just as good to keep them in a shed outside.

If you must store a set, properly inflate them and store them on their side out of the sun.

Nope. I DD my jeep 500+ miles a week with aggressive MT's. I don't have a need for two sets of wheels.

Rims take a beating in the winter here in PA. No reason to keep the chrome on if you have another set.

And the fuel you could save by not doing this would pay for another set of wheels and tires and probably some other Jeep parts as well.

To answer the question, store them on their side and out of direct sunlight, as has already been said. Then you'll be fine.

When you guys say side, do you mean lay them down on the letter sides hence sidewalls. Or upright in the treads like in most sams clubs.

I have a rubi so I dont complain about mpg's to much. I used to drive a geo metro but after one to many close calls with a elk, and seeing 3 get creamed in one week, I figured I'll give up the gas savings to be able too make it home at the end of the day.

Yes, on the sidewalls. I always left them that way in my shed, away from sun in white plastic bags for tires.

If you plasti dip chrome or aluminum rims it protects them from the harsh winter and road salt. When spring rolls around just peel it off.
