Guys,
I've been using a set of Flat-stopper things made by Race Ramps under my tires ever since Xmas.
I can tell you without any doubt THEY WORK. I have no thumping or strange vibes now after I pull the car out after sitting for weeks.....and drive up to 60-70 mph. It would usually go away after about 10 miles....but it was still annoying as hell.
These things are the real deal. They work.

I have never ever had a problem with flattening. In the winter I put in 40 psi and in the spring let it out to 34 psi. In the winter I have plastic and cardboard under the car to keep the moisture off the under body.

The last tires I had that flat spotted from sitting were the old nylon tires. After the manfacturers switched to rayon and then polyester I never had that problem again even if the vehicles sit for months at a time.

I had a 2000 SS that I owned for several years and the tires would definitely flat spot when the car sat for a few weeks without moving. Drove me crazy! I think these flat stoppers would be great for a car that sits a lot.
