My XE is here to stay for a while, I've researched what replacement tyres I want, and decided to get a winter set of tyres and wheels to store.

But how do those of you who are veterans at this COLLECT all your tyres and wheels once you've purchased them?

The XE is a lover's car (so the back seat is for, well.. umm). It's too small to hold four tyres (... or even two tires,... or perhaps you can't even get an 18" tyre through the blessed doorwell).
My interior is Oyster Taurus, and I don't want to think of what will happen if I try using it to transport tyres and rims without a reliable plan.

So, how did you buy your extra rims and get them home?

I order them online and have them delivered to my garage. They then store the winter/summer rims at their premises. No need to transport them.

You're lucky that your garage has space to store four extra tires. When in doubt, call in a friend with an SUV or pickup and pay them back in pizza and beverages.

I essentially just call up a friend with an SUV like @Predator said. Worst case, I'll try to go somewhere that either has storage or are willing to deliver it for a fee even.

Be on the look out for new JLR dealership openings since you have a much higher chance of getting storage space with them. Even if you have to drive out a bit more its all worth the time you save overall.
