- The ideal storage for trailer tires is in a cool, dark garage at maximum inflation.
- Use tire covers to protect the tires from direct sunlight.
- Use thin plywood sections between the tire and the pavement.
- For long term storage, put the trailer on blocks to take the weight off the tires. Then lower the air pressure and cover the tires to protect them from direct sunlight.
So what's the definition of "long term" ??At the time it seemed like a good idea...

Storing up here in Canada would definitely fit the definition of long term!!! We store our boats longer than the season we get to use them.2008 Moomba Mobius LSV Ballast III (stock), Heater, Roswell Quad Spin Pro, Bimini

Me? Neither so far, but we have pretty mild winters and summers for the most part.
However I just dropped $500 on tires this summer so the idea of making them last a long time caught me eye.
They're saying max air if they're sitting with weight on them. If no weight (blocked up) then lower the air.At the time it seemed like a good idea...

Blocking the axles up might also help your bearings. Someone once told me that the rollers in a bearing can wear grooves in the races, especially with added forces- wind, snow load and such. Probably best to put new bearing in every year, but I know how that goes.

This is a common topic on car forums where people store their cars for the winter. The general consensus is to inflate to max pressure and not put it up on blocks.Scott
