Anyone have any tips for preserving older clinchers? Armorall?

I've stored tires in black plastic bags with good result. But now I have a set of 10 year old Continentals (brown sidewalls) I love, but they're on a bike that doesn't get many miles. I'd hate to see them deteriorate before I can wear them out, and they're on the only bike they fit.
