I'm looking to purchase some sort of storage units to
better store the wheels and tires that I currently have
stacked throughout my garage. I currently have 3 sets of
tires/wheels (and am jonesing for a set of urs4 wheels,
anyone have a set in track condition they want to sell for
cheap?). There are some ads in the back of Grassroots
Motorsports for some units that look pretty similar to
Gorilla racks (heavy duty storage shelves from Costco) but
without the wooden shelf, and are priced a bit higher. The
only downside to this setup is that the wheels/tires would
be stored upright, sitting on the tread surface. I've
always assumed storing tires on their tread would be a bad
idea, because it would flat spot them. I recall seeing an
ad a while back for a rack where 2 wheels hang on a single
pipe through the middle of the wheel, mounted on a wall.
But I can't seem to find this one again. Has anyone seen
this? I did stop by Speedware to see if they had anything.
They only had some very nice (and expensive) aluminium
racks mainly designed for the interior of a trailer.
Anyone have any good solutions for this? I'm sure that I'm
not the only one with this problem. And leaving them
stacked on the floor of my garage is not an option
anymore. My wife is not happy having tires 'stacked all
over' the garage.

PS I would like to 'thank' the NW Audi Club for helping to
contribute to my wheel accumulation problem by showing me
what these cars are capable of, specifically Linus, Alex,
