winter storage for tires

Hello there Rver's
Well Im nearing the competion of my barn renovation so I'll be able to store my class C over the winter and do some much needed repairs. My question is what should I be putting under my tires?? some folks say blocks of wood, plywood, of those plastic "lego" looking blocks. The floor in the barn is mostly concrete but does have an area that is crushed stone.
Also I have read that some people take their rigs competely off the ground like on jack stands or their leveling jacks good or bad idea? I just want to make sure im storing them correctly and dont have tires issues when we hit the road in the spring.

If you are worried about putting something under tires a lot of people use those white plastic cutting boards, or cut up one of those plastic things for under office chairs or the lego things or some good 2X12's. They all work.

On gravel the lego things will get small gravel in the crevises.

Nice to have an inside place for the RV; good for you.

winter storage

Yes it is great that I have an inside place for the RV. It took a little renovating and I had to add on an additional 8 foot to the building so the Rv would fit but it will be great to get her inside and begin the must need work on it. I want to have it ready to go when the mrs and I travel to Vancouver WA to see our son, daughter in law, grand daughter #1 and our newest granddaughter born this past Aug.

Inflate tires to the max. psi. You could use some 2 x 10's covered with some plastic. If you use the 2 x lumber te thickness of the plastic is not important.......jsut the vapor barrier is important
