Default Wall mounted tire racks

I would imagine there are several folks here who have wall-mounted tire racks in their garage. Any advice/recommendations on type or brand? Good idea or bad idea?

My main worry is the weight. Tires/wheels are heavy. I plan to store my snow tires up there (and my OEM wheels/tires when my snow ones are on for maybe a week or two at a time). I'd say each one is at least 50lbs x 4. I'm sure a few lag bolts would be fine, but it still worries me. The potential for damage is much greater than hanging a picture frame or TV on the wall.

Would put it here above the cabinets.



They don't seem too expensive either.

I rock two of the amazons "recommended" ones. They go in the studs and are ROCK solid up to like 300+ lbs.

Are those Gladiator cabinets

As long as you mount to studs I don't see why you'd have an issue...

Are you not aware that when you mount something like this you should screw into studs?

I've got to assume Shamoo is smart enough to know that. Even going into the studs and hanging my body weight off it I was still nervous with each wheel I added

Yeah, Gladiator cabinets. Got them on sale + Black Friday + some employee discount. Maybe like $130 each. They're still hard to find for under $250 each. Have 5 of them in my garage and 6 in my wife's parents' garage.

I think studs are fine too, but I just worry about potential issues. I've mounted big 70"+ TVs, but they're never more than maybe 70-80lbs nowadays. To put 150-200lbs of tires on there for an extended period worries me.

Good to know. I think I just worry too much. I could even strap the tires together so they don't "roll" if things went south (i.e.: roll/bounce to the Accord, then over to the GT3 ).

Yes, I'm well aware of that sir. I have just never hung THAT much weight on studs before plus it is going over vehicles so potential for expensive damage worries me.

Didn't you just build a shed for this exact reason?

I had two of these at my old house.

They definitely seem less than solid empty, but I never had issue with mine. I generally had the winter tires for the Fit on one & the storage wheels for the AP1 on the other. So probably 180# on one & 90# on the other.

Hah, my wife said the same thing.

I did. The shed was to declutter the garage. But the tires stacked up take up about 1/5th to 1/4th of the entire usable shed space so just thinking out loud of what I can do. I want to be able to gain access to the shed items easily without having to move stuff around and with the tires there, it makes it a chore to reach the shop vac, garden tools, bike tires, compressor, etc.

I kept the top of my cabinets bare because I don't like random clutter on top of it (e.g.: random boxes, etc) that make it look messy. But I *think* a tire mount is more "even and symmetrical" so it won't look that bad.

Tires are under the covers here in the side of the shed.

Why not just stack the tires on the cabinets themselves? Put down some cardboard and stack them on top.

As long as you hit the studs you'll be fine, also don't just 'toss' them in there.

I think I disagree with about every word you type on this forum.

This idea is not a bad one though

For his size garage you need all the flr space you can get, mounting the rack on the wall is the only way.

To me, that looks messy. The cabinets are also 18" deep and the tires are about 27" in diameter, plus you run the chance of them touching the white walls and getting them dirty.

Wall racks are a symbol of elitism. Stacking tires on cabinets reeks of pleb status.

That looks REAL nice. But as tony said, I need the floor space.

Fair enough. Just spitballing is all.
