Garage Tire Storage

Justin

Save the dawn for your dishes!!!
I am moving in a month to a much smaller house and the good part is the garge is 100 sq ft bigger but it must store much more stuff that was once in bedrooms. Which brings me to find a good off the floor storage for my slicks and in the future skinnes. So far this is the best I have found as its adjustable and holds a lot of weight. Any reason I shouldnt buy this one?

I have the same style tire holder made out of wood and attached to my rafters. I periodically rotated the tires so they would not get flat spotted from sitting in one spot for too long of a time.

The 2 X 4's that the tires rest on is also mounted at an angle so the tires don't sit on the edge of the wood.

I ended up buying some plywood and laid it on the wood so the tires could lay on their side. I got tired of spinning the tires around.

yeah I would make one out of wood except I dont have any wood working tools so the buy in cost wouldnt be worth it as I would spend money to save money then end up needing to store more tools lol. When I say this place is small I mean small. going from 1800 square feet to 750 one bedroom a living room and a kitchen but the garage is 345 square feet up from the 215 square feet garage I have now.

The neighborhood handyman made mine-designed it, and used his own tools and wood.

He also made a set of car ramps.

That's a great link. I was actually asking my wife a few hours ago, what she thought about me building a wooden box to store my wheels in. It would have to built outside our house. That rack just might fit in our garage.
