Default store continental extreme sports in cold ?

can continental extreme sport tires be left on car if stored inside in cold (less than 40 degrees F) if it is not driven moved or rolled ?

Or, should they be taken off and stored in warm area (greater the 40 degrees F)

thank you

Freezing temperatures can damage Ultra, Max and Extreme performance tires. You probably have a basement in OH. Put the car on jack stands and put the tires in the basement.

Never heard of cold damaging performance tires. Not to say it couldn't happen. On our 2014 Mustang GT it has the Brembo brake package so it has the ultra? high performane 19" tires. Right in the owners manual it says do not drive car with these tires below 40 degrees or in any kind of snow. And I can attest they are truly horrible in snow. Had to drive from the dealership about 10 miles to my house with an inch of snow on the roadway. I didn't think I was going to make it home. Zero traction.

I would check with the tire manufacture to se what they recommend.

I don't remember where it was or what manufacturer it was, but I read a much more stern warning than the one from Tire Rack a while back.
