How do you carry your track tires to the track?

..that is, if you do carry them there. My track tires are and will always be non-RFTs. So if any of them blows, I'd be screwed with towing, considering I live at least couple hours away from any track. This time I'm considering hauling a second set.

I guess for e90s you can put them in the back seats, but for an e92, only 2 fronts will BARELY fit in the trunk. And putting the rears in the back seats ruins the interior and they move around a lot..

Roof rack? Tow cargo rack? Any other good ideas?

4 tires in tirerack totes fit fine in rear e92 seats and keep the interior clean. You stack them horizontal, not vertical, otherwise one of them will roll to the front the first time you hit the brakes (ask me how I know...). Save the trunk for track supplies.

I fit four tires in my e92 no problem. Just need to push the tires as far forward as possible through the seats.

Not my car (although I do have a roof basket) but this would work.
