Not my pics, but I have the same set-up. One tire in the car and three on the roof.

I couldn't fit my 275/35/18s in trash bags. I had to split the bag and then do my best to tape in close. It would leave a 4 inch gap, which is just fine. But effing with taping the bags was a total pain. TireTotes rule.

I've also seen little mini trailers that are pulled behind the car...the last one I saw was being pulled by a C6 Z06....nice little setup really....a rack for 4 wheels (vette width 295 front 345 rear) with a locking tool box underneath and some bulk storage.....

A rather fragile tire for street use, no?

And also pretty hazardous if you can't get heat in them, esp. when wet!
