Tire Pillows

Since we will be keeping our Boxsters a lot longer in the garage this time of the year ( at least until the spring ), does anyone actually use these tire cushions to keep those tires from getting flat spot? Do they really work? Although I always run my car around the block about once a week even during the dead of winter, I am considering on getting one. Where can I get them?

Hi Tom, I just inflate the tires to the maximum pressure (44psi on the Contis on my car) and have had no problem with flat spotting in storage, even with not moving from under the car cover all winter.

If you take it out once a week, you may not want to be at 44psi in the snow. I'd vote for making one of those trips to the gas station for AIR every 6-8 weeks.
