Tire cradles

Why should you consider tire cradles?

About

Avoid flat spots on your tires this winter with tire cradles at ZR Auto. The longer your car sits on cold concrete, the more likely your tires are to develop temporary or perminant flat spots. The reasons that tires develop flat spots are basically a function of pressure, temperature and time. Flatspotting is either temporary, in that the tire will round out with driving, or permanent, which effects the belting and casing of the tire. These permanent flat spots effectively ruin the tire. The usage of tire cradles will prevent this from occurring.

Parking tires designed for warm temperatures on a cold surface will almost guarantee damage to the rubber, which is why tire cradles are effective. They create a barrier between the tires and the concrete, allowing an equalization of pressure and temperature.
