Question Tire Winter Storage Question

Hey guys I just took off my stock 17" Rims and Pirelli tires for the winter. Should I deflate the tires? Or leave them full and just stack them?

Thanks!

cold air contracts, and warm air expands, so if you store them in a cool place, no worries with them, just make sure they are where a cat or some animal cant sit on them or piss on them. Animal piss sure does make stuff rust quick.

im putting my car away too

if your taking your tires off leave air in them and stack them cuz if you take air out and stack them the bead on the tires wont reseat when you go to air them up again. or if you leave your tires on like me. then drive your car up on ramps or 2 or 3 inch pieces of hardwood. so your tires arnt on the concrete. if your tires sit on concrete during winter the tires will slowly begin to dry rot and these are expensive nice tires and i dont think that would be a good idea. so there you go from my experience.
