Default My Krawlers... storage question

Ive heard several different theories on how to store unmounted tires for long periods of time...

standing upright?
stacked on top of each other?

The reason I asked is I have a set of krawlers I had in a corner standing up... Now they have a huge flat spots and Im worried there trashed..

Any help?????

I stack mine.
My guess is once you air them up and run them they will be fine.

Tire shop I worked at stored tires upwright on shelves with only the cross bars. Some of the tires that were around longer would form around the bars but as soon as they were aired up you wouldn't have been able to tell.
