I have some spares in tire bags on a shelf in my garage (semi climate controlled). My other spares I have in our basement (vertical stack). I keep those away from the hot water heater and furnace due to the ozone. May not be ideal, but I'm also not the fastest on track for a little grip lost is something I likely will not notice.

You don't think they're transported to the US in climate-controlled containers, then moved to climate controlled trucks, then stored in warehouses that maintain a perfect 72F, do you?

I've been in TR's South Bend warehouse. It was cold. Like low 40s cold.
Very good point. I found a spot to stash them at work that no one's complained about yet.

Solid move. I couldn't pull this off, the wife's pretty partial to the smell of gasoline and 2 stroke exhaust, but tires don't really do it for her.

Track stickies, 200tw summer tires, go inside under a blanket in the basement. Next to the sim rig. My mortgage my eye sore.

I keep the car on a lesser pair of summer tires/wheels (the daily set) in the garage and I'll let them thoroughly warm up to temp(40*) before driving on them in the spring. Maybe anyways... at least 30 in the garage likely. Im going to be impatient come April.

So far my garage seems to keep about 25 degrees warmer than the outside temp. Hope that's still true come January and February when we get into the negative 10's & 20's....
Why TF do I still live here....

Ya, this. I have the Rivals too. Even in the 50s I can tell they don't work as well. I usually store the car about the time of year the temps get low, long before the snow falls. Just park it in the garage and put the Ctek on the battery. The tires for my G37x (I always swap on snow tires in the winter) get stacked in the basement.

Mine are currently stacked in the garage with tire pressure set at 25psi. Current daytime temps are 30 in the morning around 5am and peaking around 45 in the afternoon

Mine are in the garage for another two weeks and then they go on the car for a track day on December 22nd.

Currently 76 degrees and sunny with a 6mph breeze out of the East.

As such, the summer rubber is stacked in a corner of the garage, and has been for about a month.

The RE-71s go in the basement. Anything else just gets stacked up in the shed or crawl space.
