Thought I would throw this question out to the group. I'm lucky enough go have a plated wr and I have several sets of wheels for dual sporting etc and they are taking up all kinds of space in the garage cluttering up the place. Was thinking I could hang them from a joist with hooks but I'm sure I'm not the only one who has thought of this or a better way?

How do others store their wheels for easy access?

What is wrong with hooks?

I mount mine on the end of a storage rack, one hook for each

You could give some to someone who can't afford another set like me :)

just go by home depot. You can use either the yellow, square/ u-hook kind or the wider tube hook kinds that are made from 1" tube steel.  If you think your rim will get screatched, wrap it with duct tape or something..

A riding buddy with multiple extra wheels has a large enough garage with the space to store wheels this way: a rod/pole covered in foam that extends straight out from the wall. Down low. No lifting wheels up and down. And the rod is not situated in a manner that shin bones and knee caps hit the spare wheels or empty rod every other walkby. Completely out of the way. Saves his older back from lots of lifting.
