Storing wheels and tires

Storing wheels and tires  - Introduction - General information - Wheels and tires - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

When storing complete wheels (tires mounted on rims), they should be suspended off the floor or placed on their sides on the floor.

Tires not mounted on rims should be stored on their sides or standing upright, but should not be suspended.

CAUTION Tires should preferably be stored in a cool, dry, dark place, and should never be stored in close proximity to solvents, gasoline, oils, etc.
