I'm trying to figure out how I want to store my off-season set of tires and didn't know if anyone had any experience with a wall rack like this:



Floor space is at a premium, so I'd like to do something on a wall. Other thought I had was to try and find a set of hooks to hang each one individually, but I couldn't find anything online, except for wheel only hooks and I'd need to store with tires on.

I'd probably put the rack up pretty high, but it also seems like trying to carry wheels&tires up and down a ladder wouldn't necessarily be ideal either. However, at just twice a year maybe it wouldn't be bad.

I own that exact rack bought off of Amazon. I thought about their smaller folding rack but I went with the stronger one and don't regret. I mounted it all the way at the top of my 9.5 foot garage wall. I'm 6 foot 7 so I wanted to it above my head because those corners are sharp! Some advice on the install, buy some washers because they aren't supplied. The head of the lag bolts won't go thru but it is close enough I wanted washers.

Also if you're installing it very close to a corner like I did be sure to leave the wall mounted pieces loose or it will be very hard to attach the bars and I ended up moving the bars once I tested it out. You can try to test it on ground to make sure you get the bars in the right slots.

It's very strong and I've got 4 Challenger SRT wheels (20x9) with BFG Comp 2 in 255/45/20 size up there and it feels very solid.

Overall I'd recommend it.

When I bought my winter wheels and tires from TireRack I also bought their tire rack. Very good quality and easy to install.

Very strong and sturdy. Need to mount it through the studs. It is high up on the garage wall, and putting tires up and down can be a chore, but they needed to be out of the way.
