To make sure your summer tyres survive the winter, all you need to do is store them correctly. If the rubber is badly stored, it can crack and lose its properties.
It is therefore recommended to follow these simple storage rules :
Storage with a rim :
- Store them in a dry, ventilated, and warm place (10 – 25°c)
- Make sure no chemical substance comes into contact with the rubber (solvents, hydrocarbons) to avoid deterioration.
- Store tyres with or without a rim differently
DON’T STORE THEM STADING UP, HANG THEM UP OR STACK THEM UP
Storage without a rim :
DON’T STACK THEM UP, DON’T HANG THEM UP, STORE THEM STANDING UP AND TURN THEM EVERY 4 WEEKS
If you’re not able to store your tyres at home, many garages or car dealers can look after your summer tyres for not too high a price.
