Which tire can be stored longer on the average


Asked by May 18, 2013 at 03:48 PM about the 2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 5.7L 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 sequoia 5.7L 4WD and want to change to new tires. The car will be packed for long periods - 6 months or at times 1 year  since I work in two different countries. I have some used tires I want to have them on the truck when I am away and then I fix the new ones when I return to use the truck.

I thought of going in for any of the following
Goodyear Silent Amour
Bridgestone Dueler

I will not be doing any serious offroading. About 30% driving on umpaved road. Yokohama Geolanda was one but I read reviews somewhere and people had problems with tires after storage.

I welcome your valuable suggestion on which tire I can go in for. Any tire outside those I mentioned can also be considered

Thanks in advance for your input.

I think what brand of tire you choose is less important than keeping the tires from exposure to direct sunlight and having them off the ground, not allowing the weight of the vehicle on the tire for extended periods of time.

If your car set for long periods of time thy will get flat spots on them. And maybe brake the belts so put your car on jack stands.

Hankook is my favorite tire since they make GOOD rubber. They're all about rubber formulation. The best way to store the car is to put it up on jack stands and cover the tires with trash bags, so they won't dry out as fast. This will also keep your wheels clean. The next important thing you need to do is have a close friend, start it AT LEAST once a month, and let the engine warm up completely then put it in gear at idle for a few minutes, letting the wheels spin in the air. Lots of internal components need to be moved on at least a monthly basis to keep important fluids from going bad, and to keep transmission and differential parts properly oiled. Yes auto fluids will spoil, especially anti-freeze. Before storing it, put a can of Sea Foam in the tank and TOP IT OFF. Less air in the tank means less evaporation causing the gas to sour.
