Thread: Tire rack

  1. #1

    Tire rack

    Inherited a set of tires ( long story ). Looking for a wall mounted tire rack to store them.

    I bought this one from Canadian Tire and it works great - currently on sale for $59!

    I've had one of these for almost 10 years. Good value when on sale!
    When I ran out of wall space, I mounted it to a homemade wheel cart to store 3 sets of wheels in my storage locker.

    I ran into the same issue - had originally bought two but the spacing in the garage was awkward. Another set of tires lives on the shed floor!

    I have the high weight capacity shelving unit from Costco where you can set variable shelf height so adjusted the lower shelf to the height of the monster 21" Cayenne wheels and tyres and all 'spares' fit there easily. The draw back of this configuration is the shelving unit does consume the all so precious garage space

    I also have the Canadian Tire racks (in red) I got a deal but not as good as $59! I had the same issue with stud spacing and had to put in extra 2x4s.

    I put the 2x4ís up today. I screwed them into the studs. I put the rack up and put tires on rack. Itís probably strong enough, but! Iím going down to Home Depots for some lag bolts. I want to be able to do chin ups on that rack
