Hey All,
Hate to do this but live in Michigan
It's time to put the car to bed for the winter. Last year I ended up putting one of my other cars that I also store up on jack stands. I did this to prevent flat spotting the tires. This was kind of a pain, Once I put on blocks I could not move the car, Now I'm storing 2, I really don't want to put the both on blocks. I only have a 24 X 24 pole barn and with both in there I have no room to do anything out there. How can I prevent flat spotting the tires with out putting them on blocks. Any advice will b apperciated

From what I hear from others - and this is my first year storing my Mustang (drove my 2006 year round and the 2013 last year) -- due to the difference in tires today you won't get flat spotting. Older tires and bias ply will flat spot.

if your afraid of flat spots put the tires up close to max pressure this way the tires are at full round and have a harder time developing flat spots. I do the same thing for my dirt bike even when it's on a stand.just make sure when you take the car out of storage return the tire pressure back to the recommended pressure.

I've stored mine on the tires for several years, and after a mile or two they are fine. :icon_handball:
