Thumbs up

Guys, the bimmer I bought about a week back came with a set of winter tires, now they are sitting on my balcony horizontaly (all four stacked on each other). So they are in the sun (in bags though) and rain, etc... Some say they should be in a dry cool place sitting vertically (side by side)..

What is the proper way to store them without damaging them in any way (heat, etc.)??

shouldn't be any problem as long as there is no weight on them. Not having any engineering skills, but I would lay them flat as you have done.

The best thing to do is hang them. Shoft of thate, store them on the sidewall. It is also best to spray them with water and flip them at least every two weeks to keep them from drying out and also forming flat spots.
