Of course it saves space. If you park your car forward into the garage, you can store the tires in a row above the hood.
Too many -ives having a rack like that...esp above one's car.

i have a rack that's 6'-0 off the ground to store my Honda Fit Wheels+tires - 16"
and i have a rack that's about 4'-6" off the ground (few inches above my Venza Hood) to store my Venza Wheels + tires - 20"

the racks are all mounted to 2x6 or 2x8 wood studs w/ proper lag bolts. it's been over a year, no problem at all.

and this saves me lots of spaces in my garage.

Basement for the summer tires (since the garage may be a little too cold ... room temperature). Garage for the winter tires (since the summer weather is alright for tires).
Stress is caused by NOT fishing enough.

Megabass, Imakatsu, Jackall, OSP RULES!
YGK, Toray, Sunline RULES!
Shimano RULES!
St. Croix & Halo RULES!

When people say "$70 per season", is that for $70 for Fall, $70 for Winter, $70 for Spring and $70 for Summer? Or is it $70 for Fall and Winter?
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

They mean "winter tire season" and "summer tire season". So basically they will store your tires from the date you take them off, until you put them back on again (and vice versa for the other half of the year).

So I have that same issue too. I've been storing at my friend's garage, but I don't want to be the guy to be in dept to her all the time. Toyota is offering tire storage for $100 per season up to 8months My question is: is I was to use their tire storage service, what's the likelihood that they will clean my tires?

Not sure if others have mentioned this but is there anyone renting out a locker at your condo? You may be able to store your tires and more for equal the price of storing them elsewhere.

Buddy's garage. I bought a nice speed lift jack that is left there for him and other's to use. And I always put him in for our annual $50 baseball draft pool every year (or the difference if he win's a $25 side bet based on the pool ) haha.

One of the perks of not living in Toronto.

The local KIA dealer stores our tires for free.

Not many other advantages to living in Yarmouth NS though..
