Dry rot tires

1901 Views 11 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Grim Reaper
What can I do to prevent my tires from getting dry rot when they are not on the truck? They are out in the elements because I don't have enough room in the garage for them. A good coat of armour all or similar?
What is the best method for storing tires for a long period of time?

Tires rot from the inside as well and there is NOTHING you can do to stop that. In Travel Trailer circles it is recomended to replace tires at 5 years no matter how they were treated and stored. The failure rate after 5 years goes up guite a lot. Trailer tires have a lot more UV protection built into them then a regular tire.
