Is there a benefit of hanging them like this over simply leaving them on the floor of the garage against the wall?

Basically to save floor space.

To save floor space. Especially if you have a larger vehicle like a suv/truck. We have a suv and the wheels/tires are massive.

Although I would have no problem using this rack on tires/wheels for our hatchback (which we do), I ultimately decided it'd be best to leave the larger wheels for our suv on the floor. We have a toddler and I would never be able to forgive myself if something were to happen.

Yes, I can see how it would be hard for a toddler to get suv tires up there, good plan to stick with the smaller car tires. I find it's easier to put the big tires up myself. :) Seriously though, my kids aren't in the garage without a parent. Too many tools in my garage, they're too young. The tire racks would be the least of my concerns.

I've got a couple of these. I've got them bolted into studs very well. They're okay, but not a heavy duty rack and get weaker when fully-extended (width). It's still not wide enough for 4 large tires at the maximum width. If you've got large truck tires, splurge for something a bit more solid.

Being able to fold it up was also nice, but since I alternate winter/summer tires stacked away, it's never actually folded up.

No, I don’t think that they will. They’re probably too wide to for all 4 (though, they may just squeeze in), but since they’re 22” SUV wheels, I assume the tire profiles are pretty high too on those widths, so they will actually rest against the wall and the outer rod only instead of sitting on both rods- and I would not trust one of those rods at full extension to hold (probably?) 350lbs worth of wheels/tires. You will see it bow for sure.

On the last thread for these racks, someone suggested tire hooks instead. Princess Auto was sold out (~$15 set) so i ended up getting some from CTC ($5.43/ea). Actually like them better than tire racks - I have two sets of racks and two sets of hooks. With the hooks, the tires are flush to the wall so they don't hang out into the garage, so works nicely if you have a narrow section with a lot of available wall space.

How high do you install this on the wall and how the heck do you put the tires up there since tires are heavy.
There's a sucker born every minute.
