Hey guys. I'm buying 3 nearly new Toyo Proxes T1-S (255/45) for a great price from James @ Lindsay and one new tire for my V (from Radial Tire), but since my run flats are fairly new, I'm not putting on for a bit. My garage is uninsulated and suffers from heat and cold extremes. Will it be harmful to the tires to have them sit for 9-12 months until I need them? Also, what is the best way to store them - laying down on top of each other? standing up?

My wife might kill me if I try to store them inside.....

Just keep them covered if there is moisture. They'll be fine unmounted.
