Anyone build one? I don't need a very big one, just for 5-10 tires or so, I try to keep em in stock, I hate needing a tire and having to order it just to find it Backordered! I actually had to ride my.... shhh sportbike some last fall:headshake

It seems like something easy that you could make yourself.

Here are a couple drawings of possible ideas. I just ghetto made them in paint, but you get the idea.

The first is just a wood rack with 2 ends, and an angled board on the bottom front and bottom back.

The second is simpler, but harder to use. Its just a basic pipe on a rope. It poses a bit of a difficulty to remove a tire thats in the middle of the stack, b/c you have to take the ones on the outside off first. But you can mount it up by the ceiling and it wont take up valuable wall or floor space.

the 1st drawing is good, but the 2nd I don't like to do, because it spreads out the side walls in one spot if stored any length of time.

WWW.rockymountianmotorcyles.com has a metal one for mounting in trailers or garage in there catalogue:thumbup:

I have the large industrial shelving unit.......I think it came from Sams club. Pull the press board out and the steel supports work great for wheel & tire storage.

This works great and you can add some lumber like in tall boys drawing to keep stuff in place.

I actually use ceiling mounted latter racks each one holds 4 tires and it is hanging from the ceiling so they are out of the way. They are shaped like a upside down T.

i made my rack out of 1 inch square tubing.very simple rack but works great!
I like this one.. but I only need about half that tire space, might be nice to use half for gear storage, and maybe a cabnet on top for helmets and stuff. Might have to fire up the old mig.:thumbup:
