Storing winter wheels/tyres in loft.

Soon will be removing the winters and getting back to 19s. Given I already have a set of 19" X5 winters in the garage I would like to put a set up in the attic. Anyone see any problems with doing this, can't imagine they would deteriorate any quicker up there?

As long as the boards up there can take the weight I don't see an issue...

And yeah...don't stack them on top of each other!!

How do you know if they can take the weight without trying?

Given I can walk across the joists can't see any issue but just wondered if the summer heat would cause any problems.

Weight will be no issue.

Its not like they are race tyres. They could quite happily live out in the garage.
