We are putting the van into storage for 3 1/2 months for the first time as we will be in New Zealand. We can only find outside storage, but so be it.

My main concern is the tyres, as she will not move in all that time.

I have seen these Wheel Savers that stop the tyres going flat

Anybody used them and are they any good ?



Wife: Have you got a fiver ? Me: £4 ? what do you want £3 for ?
Here's £2, bring me the change !

I cant help on those but I have heard about inflating tyres to really high pressures to stop flat spotting. No doubt someone will be along to expand on that if its a go-er...

Perhaps consider some part worn ones on a temporary basis.

For the last 8 winters, I've parked up my moho (indoors) and never done anything as regards the tyres with the exception of making sure they are fully inflated according to mnfrs instructions. The first lot survived their allotted 7/8 year life span and the second set are fine after 4 years.
