    Angry What is the best way to store wheels and tires?

    I have a near perfect set of stock WRX wheels with crappy RE92s mounted on them. What is the best way to store them so they don't pit or get discolored? Should I demount the tires or leave them on? Plastic bag them?

    Anybody who has successfully stored wheels for a few years care to share?

    -Jim

    (search for wheel)

    leave the tires mounted on the wheels.

    remove all air, but dont remove the valve stem core. Leave valve stem cap on. Remove wheel weights, or electrolisis (sp?) may occur (i think thats what its called)and store one on top of the other BACK down.
