For us, i use treated wood, 2X8X24 inches, And put one under each tire. I cover the tires and air up to the max pressure listed on the tire. I have been doing that for over 12 years now and haven't had any issues. Hope that is what you wanted. If you want to take the tires off the rv, Place them on a pallet and cover them after putting max air in them. Dan

I was wondering the exact same thing, what is the best surface to park on for the tires to not age because of what they are sitting on?

I decided to park on plywood, 3/4" plywood under all tires, not sure if that's best or not but seems better than gravel or asphalt or cement??

Buy the think plastic trim that they sell at Lowes or Home Depot. It is about 3/4" thick and comes as wide as 12 inches. I have been parking on it for years. It will not hold water like wood and cement can be damp. I drill a few small holes in the plastic so that it will drain water. I use tire covers as well.
