I remember when I got a tire deal from Toyo- they shipped me 32 tires at once. No room in the garage, so I stuffed them in the basement, so you can imagine what the house smelled like for the next week.
It ain't big enough, but are they ever? I still get the peers as people drive by. My house is on a curve as the attached photo shows. I have very little privacy due to the lay of the house and the curve and am considering building a detached garage or car port at the end of the drive with a brick and wrought iron courtyard around my patio area to give us some privacy if we are on the patio.

batting .500...
the bottom are KDW2's but the top are Hankook RS2's.

Here's a GFprce Sport:


The KDW2s suck ***** in the dry. They're hard like bricks even with a 50 series sidewall and they dont have anywhere near the grip of the best summer tires. RS2 wins--even with only a few miles on them. Still like the Azenis RT615 best though.

sb you must live in the country (farm land? no trees) because that's a lot of property- enough to build garage that'd make your house look small

It feels like the country because it used to be farm land, but it is just outside the city limits of Murfreesboro (population 70,000+) and less then 20 miles from Nashville. Country feel + convenience FTW!! We have just over an acre and I'd love to build a huge garage, but the restrictions limit detatched buildings to 800 sq. ft. and they must be 80% brick to match the house.

Here is a picture of my one car garage at my old apartment complex:


(luckily the fire extinguisher was never needed)

and here is part of the garage at my new house:
