Been reading a lot of articles about storing cars for the winter months. I am putting my baby up on the 19th of October. If I am storing it for 6 months should I put it on jack stands for the winter to keep from flat spotting the tires? I see many articles and they all have different theorys. Octobers handymans issue was the last article I read. by the way it was a good artice about tucking your baby away.

Modern tires tend not to flat spot, unless sitting for years. That said, putting the car on blocks unloads the suspension,(which keeps it from sagging), makes it harder for rodents to gain entry, and generally isn't a bad idea at all.

I do the same thing, but I also back it out of the garage to coat all the internal moving parts with fresh lube .

I used to just start mine up once in a while...and go for a drive on nice days. Anything else is fine and extra. IMHO! Eric

No chance of us northern boys going for a cruz on "nice" days during winter. Nice would be 35° and the roads would be white with salt. It's like your driving down a gravel road. Nothing but white dust in the rearview.....

I may have to report you for bringing up this bad memory in my mind! Winter needs to stay away! I am going to fill out paperwork and reserve a spot for winter tonight 8(
