So there are shock racks, tire racks, gas can holders, gear racks...etc, but has anyone found an effective way to store loose wheels in their trailer besides just putting them in a cabinet.  Does anyone sell or has anyone created some kind of cool rack or storage for the spares wheels?  At this point we just stack them on the floor in the little closet, but because of the varying sizes it just isn't pretty and every now and then you open the door and out comes a bunch of wheels.

How do you store loose wheels on that?  We have those for all the tires with and without wheels, but what about loose wheels...

Kind of hard to explain but I tooks some .050 aluminum 7.750 wide for the 6" wheels and 6.750 for the 5" by whatever length and bent 1/2" flanges on each side to 135 degrees. I riveted them to the ceiling of the trailer and the rims slide in from the end. All wheels are a little different so if you have a variety this may not work for you. You can drop me an e-mail and I can take some pictures this weekend and send them to you.

Why do you have wheels without tires on them?

My bad...I was apparently too tired when reading your post and missed that you were looking for a wheel rack, not a tire rack.

Thanks Eric...I will email you for a couple pics...that sounds like just what I am looking for.

Extra wheels, varying sizes for when we need to change tire sizes...etc...etc...etc...

Get a 1 or 1-1/4 inch pvc pipe and connect it to a pvc or metal flange you bolt into the floor. You'll need an adapter to be able to screw the pipe into the flange. You can toss the rims on there and stack vertically.

I always thought it was easier to keep tires on the rims. Especialy when we were running 3 classes. Didn't have much time to fool with mounting tires at the track.

Try Cory at the Mac O Chee club. He makes those kind of things to whatever size you need.

Forget the expension shock racks, gear racks.  Go get yourself some pegboard from Lowes or Home Depot and use that.  Buy a bunch of hooks and hang everything up.  Been using it for 10 years now.
