"Up North": Changing seasons means changing your tires

Love it or just barely tolerate it, the cold, frosty weather is not far off in northern climes, and that means it’s almost time to put winter tires back on your vehicle.

But where did you store those tires? We’re guessing you either paid to store them offsite, or they’re stacked in a corner someplace, where they’ve been collecting dirt, dust and grass clippings all summer.

As mentioned in our post last spring, winter tires are best stored neatly on a HyLoft® Tire Rack throughout the warm weather. KV offers HyLoft Tire Storage with three different racks that can get those tires up off the floor and out of the way.

Heavy-Duty Tire Storage Rack

The Heavy-Duty Tire Storage Rack offers safe and secure storage for up to four full-size tires. The Master Rail attaches to wall studs so you can move the rack left to right, while telescoping support bars adjust from 34" to 60" wide. Holds up to 400 lbs.

HyLoft Tire Loft

The Tire Loft stores all types of tires, including motorcycle tires, ATV tires or racing tires and wheels. With adjustable widths of 36" to 48", it has a weight capacity up to 375 lbs.

HyLoft Folding Tireloft

The Folding Tire Loft folds up against the wall when you’re not using it, and it's perfect for all kinds of tires with an adjustable mounting width of 32"–48". It holds up to 300 lbs.

Find the right tire storage for you on this website or at hardware stores and home stores across the U.S. and internationally. Need somebody to mount it for you? Check here for an installer in your area.

Also—if you don’t do winter tires, a HyLoft Tire Rack is just right for those extra ATV tires or any other set of wheels you’re not using at the moment.
