Parking your car for long periods of time on any flat surface can produce flat spotting on most any tire. It is very common when a car is parked for winter storage, especially if your collector's car has older bias ply tires, which have a high percentage of flat spotting.
Most car enthusiasts know about the "thumping, whap, whap" that flat spotting causes when you first drive the car again. However, few know what other problems can occur. Flat spotting can decrease tire life and generate dry cracks in the sidewall of the tire. Steel belted radials which are left cooling and warming on concrete on a daily basis can also cause a decreased tire life, and this is even more likely when the tire is under-inflated. The steel belted cores become weaker as they expand and contract, resulting in a danger of tire failure when they are finally driven on.
Race Ramps flatstoppers are made from the patented technology as the revolutionary Race Ramps.
