I would dump the air bags because they will leak down when stored for a long period. Also, put the jack down to take stress off the tires, place a vapor barrier under the tires and set the tire pressure to the maximum on the sidewalls. Redajust the tire pressure before you drive it.

Make sure you drive it at least once per month... 100 miles+/-.
