and yes will post pictures when I do it... after next season I will need some new tires Peter... - I'll have 6K miles on my Carlisles.. good excuse for 2 new wheels and tires right?
Well............I would throw in free mounting with the new wheels so you would be saving money right there.

Been thinking for months about how to store my skis. I'm severely limited on wall space in my garage, but today I thought of the solution. The hitch mount bike rack went to another wall (had to move the ladder over to make it fit) and then I had this space next to the furnace. I stacked the two 6x12 blocks of wood (I have these for extra safety when working under a car supported on jack stands) on top of each other to build up the base for the skis to rest on -- floor is too low relative to the rack, and I'm too lazy to move the rack. And then I discovered that the skis fit perfectly into these rack attachments, which are intended for another purpose by the manufacturer. Here are two pics. I think it'll work well.
