I park on concrete and use wood under each tire. As a suggestion, I go to Home Depot and look in their scrap bin for half sheets of plywood (1/2 ") and will buy that about every three years (sometimes you can get roof decking which is weather proofed and it will last longer). I then cut it to fit either the single front tires or leave as a 1/2 sheet for each side for my rear duals. I also keep the tires covered with sun shields (I bought mine at Camping World).

For me it's Concrete with 3/8" rubber under Tires.

For storage I have 9" blocks I put under not extended Jack Pads ( Stored Position) Then Dump the Air.

Boost tire pressure to that on side wall

And you are Good to GO!!

Be careful parking on asphalt if it is going to be real hot. I parked our 5th wheel on asphalt in South Carolina for several months and it sunk several inch's and I had a heck of a time hitching to the truck.

Check out the Michelin web site, they go into detail about concrete and how it is not good to let the tires contact it directly for long periods of time. Moisture seeping up through is apparently the culprit. A barrier is a must.

Several inches???
Wretched excess is just barely enough.

Our tires on the fifth wheel did not sink several inch's but the legs did.
