I have a set of 5 OEM rims and tires that I have in storage, and was wondering if the tires/rubber will ever go bad? Can I keep them in storage indefinitely?

I swapped out the original 17" OEM rims on the e46 sport package for some 16" OEM rims to soften the ride until our baby gets a little older. Then I plan on putting the 17" rims back on...

Thanks.

If the tires are brand new/ never driven on they can go 7 years or longer in temperature and humidity controlled warehouse conditions. If they've already been through some heat cycles from daily usage, and say they'll start to get harder sooner, but no exact figures from the industry on this.
