    That's a great idea and if the tires were only on there for small amounts of time, I would probably do that, but they will probably be up there as long as we live in this house, they are an extra set for my wifes T/A. And that car will eventually get redone also and probably use the rims or may just sell them, who knows.. I just wanted to clear up some floor space in that corner to put a engine stand and block up, and a lot more stuff..

    Jegs has them on sale for $50 all the time. I got one there and I like it. At that price it's hard to build one cheaper...

    Yea I saw and found those in the catalogs, but I was looking to spend as little as possible, and I had most everything to make mine out of wood. Only thing I had to go buy were longer lag bolts, the ones I had barely even made it thru the sheet rock, so I think for the one I hung, cost about $6 or so in bolts and washers.. I built a 2nd one, but may not use it since we are focusing on the attic space to put a lot of the stuff, so the other 6 tires and rims may go up there since I wont need them for a long time

    Dont forget to gorilla glue each joint of wood, along with your nails/screws. Did that to a bookshelf as i assembled it and im pretty sure it could go through an earthquake and still be solid!
