Putting them away until carpet season and going to rubber.

In an air-tight container or plastic bag.

Yeah, Ziploc bags are very handy for that sort of thing(for rubber tires as well as foam ones).... :cool:

Ziplock bag, squeeze the air out, and store out of direct sunlight. Also, if you want to be fast the first time back, open up the bag and put a quick shot of compound on about a week before your first carpet race.

I agree, when in doubt go with the ziploc bags, just remembering to squeeze out as much air as possible of course :D

ziplock, squeeze the air out, then store them in pringles tubes

apply a little tire compound on too, it helps keep them moist

According to Jack Rimer of Jaco, their foams don't have to be stored in airtight containers - that's the reason they now use boxes. It is a good idea to wash foams in soap and water to remove the buildup of traction compound. If compound is left on tires is can cause them to soften too much - many times this leads to a ill handling car. Certain types of compounds had a way of breaking down the tire glue that held them together - sometimes the seams separated or foam starting coming off the rim. I use the Pringle cans both for storage and an easy way of taking tires to track.
