Suggestions on storing wheel/tire set for the winter

Suggestions on storing wheel/tire set for the winter?

I have room in my basement, but how should I store them?

I do not want to buy wheel totes or a wheel rack, so what should I do?

Store them on a flattened box laying flat? on a tarp? standing up as if they were on a car?

How do you guy store your wheels on the cheap?

In the past, I've always stored them on their side, stacked with cardboard in between each wheel.

I plan on getting this in the future:

I stack them up in my unheated barn. Been doing this for many years. Only R compounds go in the heated basement. No fancy covers or racks, though if I had the floor space and the money, that tire rack rack looks nice. Id need a wall mount and know they make them, but I have 12 wheels that are stored.

Exactly. Just stack them up and worry about more important things. Stacking them won't damage anything.
