Because of logistics problems, I will be storing some spare parts including things like rubber manifold, tires and tubes, and maybe a few others. I know that in storage bike tires tend to degrade and crack, so I am wondering the proper way to store such things. Is there, for example, something they can be coated with that will protect them? Or can they be wrapped with something? Hopefully, I won't have to use the spares, but hate to think of going to get something and finding it in worse shape than the original. There may also be ways of keeping tires, grips and things in better shape while they are in use on the bike. Any ideas?
Doesn't petroleum products act like a solvent to rubber?
