Anyone store their trucks over the winter months? My main question is regarding flat-spotting of tires. For my cars I always just inflate tires to 50psi while they are laid up, keeps tires from flat-spotting.

I'm going to be parking my truck soon and plan on doing the same, but wonder if it will work for 35x12.5-20s as well, or if I should put on stands. Seems like the larger contact patch and sidewall, along with softer compound will leave then vulnerable to flat-spotting.

Thoughts?

If it's just for a few months, I don't think you have anything to worry about. I have a couple older cars that I store, and I just leave the tires inflated to normal pressure. I've never had a problem.

As long as they are radials shouldn't be an issue. I've stored my Camaro every winter for years and haven't had an issue.

If you do decide to put it on stands, keep the weight on the suspension. The internet tells me there are more issues keeping the suspension unloaded than possibly flat spotting modern radial tires.
