In auto shops I see various products that claim to revitalize and preserve auto tires. Would these be safe for bike tires?
I personally have been keeping the removed tires from a 1930s Schwinn "in
shape" by stuffing them with acid free paper to maintain their shape and
then having them hang from a wooden hook that does not actually touch the

Subject: [CR]Preserving Vintage Tires
Just looking for a reliable way to preserve and store vintage tires. I
bought some Saturae rims that came with some really nice Specialized Gumwall
Turbos. I would give the tires a usage rating of under 10% as they still
have some of the little rubber pieces sticking up on the side of the tires.
Anyways I will use these tires for exhibition/photo shoots only for my Early
Allez and want to keep them from drying out and cracking. Any good ideas?
