Why's that then. Tyre/Wheel storage.

I must be going daft.

in this auction the seller says "Tyres CANNOT be taken off rims as they have been stored lying down"

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pair-16-Alloy-...QQcmdZViewItem

Why's that then?

Sounds like bollocks to me mate, what happens when you want to fit new tyres?
Seems like he wants shot of the tyres and alloys rather than splitting them, just my opinion though.

Exactly my thoughts to be honest.

I've asked the question of him and am awaiting an answer.
the two new duelers would be a good buy for the price if I can change them over.

I think he means the tyres have been stored off the rims and stacked up.
Tyres that have been left like this for some time can be an absolute bugger to get back on the rims if theyre tubeless, as you cant get the beads to pop up onto the rim, because the tyre is out of shape and the beads wont both seal at the same time.
The usual trick is to use either a woofer as we used to call it which was a big air tank with a gate valve and nozzle, you can get a lot of air in the tyre quickly with one of these to pop it on the rim, (through the open bead)
or squirt some easy start in the tyre and set lite to it, The rapid expansion literaly blows the tyre on the rim
Usually its not a problem once theyve been stretched on a rim for a while they regain their shape especially if they have done a mile or two.

by the way, thinking about it i wouldnt be too happy about using tyres that have been squashed flat! the tyre has been deformed in a direction it was never designed to, whilst there may be no visible damage, there could be small cracks in the tread which in time will let moisture into the carcass corroding the cords, or the steel cords could have been damaged, it does not bear thinking about the consequences if one failed catastrophically on the Mway at 70mph, with Nashers Revenge in tow and the little nashers in the car.
personally i would leave alone to be on the safe side.

Doggy

Thanks very much for that advise, I think I'll leave well alone.

As you say, with the weight of the boat on the back, loaded up for camping, and with the family on board I need to be able to trust the rear tyres.

Reply from the seller:-

We have been advised of the following:
 Tyres should be stored upright.
 These tyres have been stored on their sides for about 9 months.
 If the tyres are removed from the wheels there is a possibility of the beading breaking which may cause the tyre wall to blister.
 We have successfully removed and reused tyres stored like this in the past however on one occasion we had a tyre that broke down hence the warning.
 The tyres and wheels if not separated will be as new and will last the full lifetime of the tyre.
 If in any doubt contact your local tyre supplier.

So basically what Doggy said.

Does anyone know if the L200 wheels will fit my 3.2 52 Plate Shogun?

Nasher.

Yes .. I think he meant lighter fuel/gas As easy start would blow it 'clean off' the rim and give you a short back and sides in the process

Yep Icelandic glacier crawling style, I think they use hairspray, clearly because they are all blonde...
