Tire rack

Post by Mick » Sun May 24, 2020 6:54 pm

No, not that one. Literally. I need a tire rack for my shop. Any suggestions on where to find a decent one? I'm looking for a free standing unit, not a wall mounted one.

Mick..I use these barrel dollys. They are ideal for me and inexpensive...about 85$ shipped for a 4 pack.

Well constructed and easily handle as many tires as you dare to stack. A 23" diameter tire drops easily into the ring...and bigger ones rest on the ring. I didn't install the inner bolts on the casters as I didn't want the bolt heads to contact the sides of the tires.

They work just fine without the 2 inner bolts..they were designed to handle 500lb barrels of stuff..so a few tires are nuffin. I now have 3 sets of them..they are very handy!! They also work well for barrels..:)

Link to dollys on Amazon.. ->.

Thanks for the replies. I'm looking for a free standing rack that can hold 24 tires or so.

No. I'm looking for something like this but a little smaller. This one looks like it fits about 50 tires

This place was recommended to me. I asked for a quote. We'll see what they say.

That's a lot of tires for someone who doesn't come to the track any more :P
