    Performance is having a good sale on Continental Ultra 3000 700X25 tires and I'm thinking of
    stocking up a bit. Do tires deteriorate over time in storage? Storage being on a shelf in our house.

    Thanks.

    Store them in a sealed black plastic garbage bag, and they'll last forever.

    Even longer if the black plastic bag is in a cool, dark place without fluorescent lighting.

    IIRC keeping them folded up is a bad idea. Tough on the rubber at the folds.

    Don't forget to keep them away from electric motors, (furnace in the basement) when they run they produce Ozone which will react with the rubber causing it to deteriorate faster.

    I open up folded tires then place them in a CLOSED spare wheelbag hanging in the garage.

    This would explain my cracked and beat-looking tires, that live on my bike stored directly next to a
    big air conditioning motor in a room lit entirely by fluorescent lighting. It's directly adjacent to
    a window, too, if that matters...

    You'll barely notice the ozone from an electric motor (unless you're in an elevator machine room).

    Photocopiers, or even larger laser printers, OTOH....

    Google "shorten URL". Or use this link: http://tinyurl.com/26lr4

    I prefer the full URL so I can see where I am going ahead of time.

    I half experienced that once by clicking on a "compressed" URL. However, since I use a dial-up
    connection, I only saw the top half of the picture before closing the window.

    I am not a prude, but I really do not wish to view disgusting pictures.

    Nah... that wouldn't happen on this newsgroup. Plus, you can usually judge by the poster if the link
    is likely legit or not.
