- The first task is the most simple and common, i.e.; we store things after cleaning them with soap or some detergent. Similarly, in the case of tyres, always remember to first clean the dirt or stain present on tyres with the help of water and soap. Then let them dry for a longer period until the water is completely evaporated.
- Once the tyre is dried completely, place it inside a bag. The bag will protect the tyre from sunlight and dirt. But, make sure to remove the air from the bag. One can use a vacuum to suck all the air from the bag. It is a very important step, for if there is too much air pressure present in the bag, it’ll wear out the tyre.
- Now, after this step, check the place of storage for the tyre. Make sure the place is cool, dry and free of moisture. And to avoid ozone exposure on tyre, make sure that there is no electric appliance near the tyre.
- If tyres don’t have rims, store them upright, while if they have rims, then it is recommended to either stack the tyres or hang them.
- The place of storage needs to be absolutely clean. Otherwise, all the effort will be wasted.
- General Tire also recommends storing tyres like this.
With these few aforementioned simple hacks, not only the tyres will last longer, but one can also reuse them without any problem.
