Matt,

Are drag radials more prone to flat spots? If the car is going to sit for 2 months, do I need to jack it up and put it on stands or should I just pump them up to 35psi instead of 26 that I normally run?

Thanks

Thank you for the post, MG0h3.

Here's what M/T recommends for their tires when not under frequent service; hope this helps:

STORAGE PROCEDURES AND TIPS
1. Remove the tires from the car or jack the car up to remove the load.
2. Drop air pressure to 5 pounds.
3. Keep the tires away from direct light (sun or fluorescent). It is best to keep tires covered.
4. Keep tires away from electric motors I.E. furnace, air compressor, etc. These create OZONE, which will damage the tire.
5. Mickey Thompson suggests that you keep tires away from extreme high and low temperatures.
6. Do not use any chemicals on the tires. To clean them use a mild detergent and water. Rinse well. Do not clean the tread surface.
