How many tires?

So I'm at the local tire beater yesterday, having a new set put on the truck, and the guy behind the counter was laughing because I had been in a few times already this summer with other vehicles....

I made an off-hand comment on how expensive it gets keeping decent rubber on everything...and the guy next to me starts laughing and pulls a folded piece of paper out of pocket. He explained that he was in the same situation, and ended up having to make a spreadsheet just to keep track of it. He found that he had just over 100 mounted tires on various vehicles...nearly 120 counting spares....

What say ye?
How many mounted tires do you have in your stable...

Re: How many tires?

20...wow, never added it up before.

edit: + 2 more = 22. I forgot the set of slicks for the Fireblades event.

All my trailers are crappy single axles, and yours have doubles...

Re: How many tires?

14, I think. Truck=4. Trailer=4. 2 bikes=4. Scooter=2. I don't need to change scooter, truck, or trailer tires all that often. The 929 gets at least one new set each season due to track use. I've had the same set on the Duc for 3 seasons now.

Re: How many tires?

Do the wheels and tires off my house count if I have them stored in the shed out back?
