At least that's what my wife says. Being new to Model T's I have a whole new world of things to shop for and parts are always showing up on the step. This week I got my BOYCO cans with the bracket and a set of tire savers. The cans still have some original paint on them so I can match it up when I restore them. They are in great shape and I plan on keeping product in them.

Any pics or ads or at least explanations of the "tire savers?" That's a new one on me.

They lift your car slightly from under the hubcaps, taking weight off the tires during hibernation. Jack stands will do the same thing, but these are designed so they each lift a corner of the car so you don't need a jack.

It's a good idea to reduce the tire pressure to 15 or so while they're up.

Mike B -- Those "tire savers" or "winter jacks" were/are used a lot up north, where they stash their cars for the winter. You don't need them where you live. :-)

Those tire savers are really neat. One of our chapter members was displaying his speedster on them last week at the car show at the Veteran's Home down in Truth or Consequences, NM.

Btw, he is from up North back East.
