Understand how to keep the tires on the wheels without them in the offseason, check the so-called “tyre hotels”.
Change to cold weather? Great! But how and where now to store tires so they last a long time? Few people know, but these questions are answered by our domestic GOST Р54266–2010 “pneumatic Tires. Packing, transportation and storage.”
The main of this GOST: tires must be kept at least a meter away from heating devices. In this case, storage of tires allowed in a wide range of temperatures: it can be as temperatures of up to minus 30 °C and heat to 35 °C. When stored tubeless tire (and such and sell the vast majority) needs to be ensured, eliminating the deformation of the sides and side walls.
It’s all good in theory, but in practice?
How to store tyres without disks
Strictly follow each letter of the GOST unrealistic. If the only place to store the tires for you is a balcony or a garage, and to pay for seasonal storage is not desirable, then on the balcony of the tyre and will wait for their hour. Tires can be stored on outdoor balcony, as you can see from GOST, even the bitter cold the summer tires are not terrible.
But remember: the main enemy of rubber — ultraviolet. Over time, it changes the structure of the rubber, reduces its elasticity and leads to cracking. Because the sun bus to leave is not desirable. You need to keep the tires from precipitation — rain and snow. For example, cover them with a piece of waterproof fabric.
You can buy special covers for the tires (they cost about 2000 rubles) or packages (about 100 rubles). Of course, before you pack the tire covers, tires would be good to wash, so as not to keep dirty. Dirt accelerates the aging of rubber, so clean — the guarantee of durability. Especially in the cleaning process of the protector can be remove stones, screws, studs, and other foreign objects. The inspection will allow you to see hernia, deep cuts and other damage to the frame.

Wheels can be taken and deposited in the tire center. This service is called “seasonal storage of rubber”. The cost of the kit storage for seven months, ranging from 1700 to 3500 rubles depending on size. For example, for a set of 13-inch tires will ask for 1700 rubles, and for a 22-inch — already 2600 rubles.
As a rule, servicemen no matter what you give for safekeeping — only tire or wheel Assembly, as you pay for place. But some may ask for 500 rubles from the top for storage it wheels. Although this is rare.
Where was saving the tires, not necessarily to do the tire, but as a rule, your customers, service men, always make a discount, ten percent.
The essence of the hotel is not the tire to blow off the wheels with dust, and that the client has not thought what to do with a seasonal kit and is not in a hurry to clean up the trash on the balcony (well, when the balcony any) to attach to a set of wheels. After all, if the apartment is small, a garage and no garden, the seasonal storage of shoes becomes a problem. In this case it makes sense to attach it on the side.
