    If I know I will be letting the car set for extended periods of time, I’ll over inflate the tires about 10lbs.

    Same... BFGs also, seems to only take 4-5 miles at 50-ish to clear up.

    Thx. I’m more concerned about the tire being degraded. The flat spots go away but it can’t be good for the tire. Minimal but hey it’s the bs section and was bsn. I like the foam idea, at least they aren’t sitting on concrete and does cradle them. I’ve done ply wood before.

    I bring up the tire pressure, and call it a winter. no issues. (Otherwise, now you need a place to store the tires a well.)

    So, I guess I am not going to revolutionize the industry with my "original" idea? :(
    I knew it could be a solution.
    The mounting surfaces rotate but, you could lock the front and rear with a piece of bar stock and a dowel pin and add wheels to them.

    How thick is the plate on those? I think I will make some.
