Need to store tyres?
The experts at Michelin are here to provide a few tips on tyre storage to keep your tyres safe and ready to go during the off-season.
If your tyres are left outside, unused for long periods of time (one month or more), their surfaces will become dry and surface cracks may appear.
It is therefore recommended to store them in a cool, dry and clean indoor environment.
When the outside temperature rises above 7°C, the rubber of your winter tyres softens under the effect of the heat. As a result, it wears out more quickly and your tyres become less efficient. This is why it is recommended to store your winter tyres and fit your summer tyres.
Conversely, when temperatures fall below 7°C, the rubber of summer tyres hardens, resulting in a loss of handling properties. This is the time when it becomes necessary to store your summer tyres and fit your winter tyres.
If you have enough space in your garage, you can store your winter tyres in stacks, making sure that they are not deformed and that they are preferably placed on pallets.
The height of the piles should not exceed 1.20 m.
If your tyres are mounted on rims, store them standing upright, hang them up or stack them (two by two maximum).
If the tyres are not fitted on rims, do not stack or hang them.
Store them standing up.
If you do not have enough space at home to store your tyres in good conditions, you should know that most dealers offer a storage service.
