Tires and Storage

We have to store our TT at an off-site storage facility. I bought pieces of wood to park on to get the tires off the ground to avoid moisture.

I bought pressure treated lumber to park on thinking that they would last longer against the elements. Then started to wonder if the pressure treated lumber will hurt the tires at all.

What do you think? Is pressure treated lumber OK for storage or should I be parking on plain ole wood?

I've not seen any info for or against using treated wood under trailer tires for extended periods. If in doubt, glue a piece of rubber mat to the top of the board.

I bought a 5th a few years ago that had been on the ground and not moved for 10+? years. I moved it a couple miles for summer use, then a couple miles for winter storage, three repetitions, all on gravel. The tires are now 14+ years old. They look great and show no signs of external deterioration. The spare looks brand new. They all hold air. I will replace them this year and get the bearings looked at/repacked as required. Tires and gravel seem to get along fine.

I have been parking my TT tires on pressure treated lumber for years and as far as I know I haven't had any problems with this.
