Do NOT put tire shine, or any other type of cleaning agent, show agent... or any bullshit from a bottle on your tires for storage. Keeping them out of the sun, in a cool garage will be fine. Be sure to jack the rear of the car up to take the weight off of them.

they aren't on the car. they are sitting on the ground mounted on the wheels. i'm guessing letting the air out of them is also a good idea.

i thought tire shine actually helps moisten the tire... keeps them from cracking

Oh, well in that case just let the air out of them, and you should be good.

The tire naturally has oils in its compounds. If its kept in a climate controlled garage, away from direct sunlight, it will not dry out or dry rott. Putting tire shine or any other tire cleaning agents actually help to promote dry rotting once they finaly evaporate. Its like wetting a peice of paper... once it drys, its brittle and weak.. far less weak than it was before it had been exposed to the water. Ive had lots of people come in and ask about this over the years. Ive seen alot of tires have side wall damage after prolonged storage because they would spray some junk in a bottle on them. Its better to just avoid it all together if your not going to use the tires.
