I pulled the motor out of my car and need to do some work on my truck and wanted to
do it in my garage and be warm =; ...Anyway my question is will this be an issue for the
tires?? I don't want to have to replace them as they have less than 50 runs on them and I can't get them off the car in the trailer...And it does get into the single digits here and below that O:) .....

Barry, haven't heard much said about tires that are in a cold environment? After all, most if not all warehouses are not heated. Only thing I've read/heard is that ozone, like what is produced by electric motors, etc is what kills tires. :-k

What Ken said. I don't heat my garage and have never had an issue with my tires. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to get the weight off of them. Jack it up just enough to get the tires off the floor.

Looks like you guys are right as I called MT tech today only other thing he said is to jack it up as you said and was going to do that anyway but to also wrap them in a big black trash bag..

When I lived back in Canada years ago, it would get down to -20 or -30 in the garage. In spring, after the thaw, one good burnout and the tires were ready to go.

I also have never had an issue, and my car sits in the trailer not jacked up from Oct.- April. Like said, one good burn-out and good to go.
