I have been using cheap polly cutting boards for the last 2 years with no problems, the coach next to me is now using the same thing.

Tire rubber is one of the toughest, most chemically resistant products (in their intended environment) on the planet.

Water intrusion? are you parking in puddles deeper than the tread blocks? If the tires are "seeping" air just how is water at atmospheric pressure supposed to get past that 80 psi air?

Flat spots? These aren't glass belt bias tires...

Alkali? If you aren't getting chemical burns from walking barefoot on concrete your tires aren't either.

Some of you guys need to go visit you barber for a good bleeding....
I have an enclosed building with base build out of "decomposed granite" at least that's what they call it here (what you find on hike and bike trails). My previous rig sank 4 inches over the "winter" storage (about 3.5 months between use) and when I pulled it out there was rubber at the bottom of the ruts that had transferred to the base..these were 3 yo toyos. Since then I have a newer rig but they both weigh over 30k. I have filled the ruts with stone, levelled it with the tractor now park on horse mats. No more sinking and no more tire damage. FYI I don't think anything except horse mats would stand up to the weight in my environment (non concrete).

You can believe what you want I will stick with what I've experienced firsthand.
