Tricks to avoiding flat spots?

Post by cuisinartvette » Sun Sep 22, 2013 1:05 pm

Fronts M/T 26x7.50x15

Dont get a chance to drive it often as I like
Takes forever to drive the flat spots out feels horrible lol.
Like the darn cars gonna fall apart cant be good for anything

Do I have to leave this thing jacked up?

Tried stacking 3 1" pieces of hard foam (kind youd stand on in front of your workbench that piece together) see if that helps some.

Really like the look of the tires dont want to have to buy more..at least not now. They are properly inflated

Idears?

Put it up on jack stands for storage. We do this for racecars as well. Keeps all of the weight off the tires and suspensions.

See how these foam things work.
If its still spots bad I may just have to buy reg street tires
Dont want to put it on stands all the time

Strange used to have a 460 in a 5.0 that had em hardly noticed it at all.
Maybe as they were 6 ply not 9 they ran out easier?

Too bad the Michelin XZX doesnt come in this size.

What's properly inflated?

How long is the car parked to get the 'flat' spots?
