    so i just got some 295s and im not sure, but one of these need to to be put up. i think i should just keep what i have til they wear, but holy crap these new tires are huge! i wanna put em on nowww. anyways so can i just lay em on their sidewall, maybe put something in between them. any certain way i should put them up. its only 2.

    i have always just stacked them on their side walls on top of each other... if they are going on a garage floor lay something under the bottom tire to keep it directly off the concrete... maybe a patch of carpet or something
