Tyre flat spots
Friend of mine has had to replace a tyre on his Noble. He was informed that it was caused by flat spots due to long storage in same position.
Have you lads had any problem with this and what was the solution ?

Driving them will also prevent flat spots.
But you can get tyre pads with a rounded shape that prevent flat spots.
BTW, I have had some of my cars parked for months on end and have never experienced this problem.

I've never had flat spots that didn't go away after a few minutes of driving. This is after 4-5 months of storage. I suppose if you let a car sit for over a year it could potentially be a problem.

You could of course put the car on jack stands as well but best is to drive it.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
