Tire care

This is how I protect my tires when not in use. This is on a class C not the 22.5 tires. I coat with a product called Sun Block, purchased at camping world. Park with all wheels on wood, put a large black trash bag over tires then cover with wheel covers. This seems to work real good. Have onln done this for about a year.

What is the best thing to park on with tires? Dirt is soft and can cover my tire area.

Tire manufacturers usually say NOT to use anything, but just wash with mild soap and water.
Michelin used to say 303, then they brought out their own product which most people feel is 303 in a Michelin bottle. It doesn't seem to be available anymore either. Now they say only wash with mild soap and water.

We do the soap and water routine then cover them when they're dry. The covers are the black ones that you can buy from Camping World or RV supply places. We cover them mainly to keep the rims clean and keep rain (or the water sprinkler) from splashing dirt on them. The only thing I've heard tire people say don't park on for extended periods is asphalt or any other petroleum based surface. I generally put one of the orange jack pads, from CW and other sources, under the tires.

I will be parking my fifth in a shed with cement floor. This is on a farm so there will be access to hay, round bales and dirt so I didn't know if any of these would cause less stress on tires.

I wouldn't use the black covers if they got much sun. Being black they'll pick up a lot of extra heat that woldn't be good for the tire's.
