This step by step woodworking project is about diy tire rack plans. Saving space in the garage is important, especially if you have several cars. A good starting point would be to build a nice tire rack, so you keep them organized. My plans come with step by step instructions and you can easily adjust all the dimensions to suit your needs. See my other DIY projects HERE.
We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

How to build a tire rack
The first step of the project is about building the sides for the rack. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber at the right dimensions. Drill pocket holes, as shown in the diagram. Align the edges flush, making sure the corners are square. Insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock everything together tightly.
Afterwards, you need to assemble the tire rack by attaching the horizontal components. Drill pocket holes at both ends of the 43″ long supports and insert 2 1/2″ screws. Add glue to the joints and make sure the corners are square.
Fill the holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to enhance the look of the project. Remember that you can easily adjust the size of the rack to suit the dimensions of your tires.
