  1. General Discussion EP3
    Whats up everybody. I will be storing my car from the beginning of April - September here in CT, possibly longer. I am trying to think about the best way to do it. I would like to rent a climate controlled storage unit for those 6 months because it will be summer time and temps would easily...

    Hey guys, just got my car ready for winter today, all clean and ready to store. I'm putting it on jack stands, and at first I was just going to use the factory pinch points on the sides, but then I wondered if that's the right place for 4 months of storage. Are there any other recommended...

    Okay, I am leaving on the 18th for Kuwait. I am going to be taking the tags off of my car and storing it at a friends garage. Is there anything I should do to the car before I leave. The car will not be driven for 6-8 months only started twice a week. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm asking this question here because canada is cold and ya'll might know a good answer. I like to keep a few liters of water in my car at all times, because you never know when an emergency will arise or I may just get thirsty. I am not used to long lasting sub-freezing temps, so how can I...

    Storing R-compounds for the winter off the rim How hard is it on R-compound tires if they are stored off the rim in the off season? Would the lack of tire pressure cause deformation/damage of the tire?

    I have been getting a lot of IM’s asking how to store slicks in the off season. #1- Let all the air out of the slicks, because if one goes down over the winter the slicks will be off when you air it back up. #2 Take two 5- gal buckets put the open side down and then put the wheel on top. Take...

  14. Car Care RSX
    I got winter tires this year. What is the best way to store my summer tires and rims? Can you just lie them on their sides, or is there a proper way to do it? I did see one person take 2 pieces of wood about 8" apart, and set the tire in there so it wasn't sitting on the floor.
