I hang my bikes by the front tires from hooks in my basement shop. I doubt that the wheels will be damaged in any way. The stress put on a rim hung upside down doesn't come close to the stress placed on it during an average ride. IMHO storing bikes either upside down, or with one wheel hanging from the ceiling is the best method of storage. This position inhibits corrosion inside the tubes because any moisture that may settle in the tubes during a ride has a chance to drain during storage.
