Here is a ‘Short List’ of some tips to consider for proper trailer tire storage:

1) Keep tire pressure at or slightly below the rated maximum PSI listed on the sidewall

2) Place a 10 x 7 or similar concrete paver under each tire if it is to be stored on non-paved surfaces

3) Make sure the valve stem interior is free of dirt, and always use a valve stem cap

4) Cover the tires with Storage Covers to keep out damaging UV sunlight

5) If practical, jack up trailer so that tires are just off the ground and support under frame rail (not under axle)
