Congrats on the nice 2012 Volt purchase! It's great to hear about older Volts still being loved and desirable as we plan on keeping our new one a long time .

I plan on getting a snow tire/wheel package this week from Tire rack for our 2018 Volt. I have stored the wheels on their sides stacked on top of each other in my basement or garden shed with no problem. I currently hang the set for my Cruze on large padded lag screws attached to studs in the garage. I've been storing them these ways for over 25 years on various cars with no tire rot or flat spotting.

My only caution is if you have any steel rims make sure they are not stored in a humid place unless every inevitable paint chip has been fixed. They will rust faster. I made that mistake myself when I used to store a set on the floor in a damp corner of the garage. Probably best to keep any rim off a concrete floor and on a wooden platform. That's what I do in the basement .
