Do you mean for storage? My dad used to put 60 psi in the tires of his Lotus for the winter. Does anyone know if that's a good/bad thing?

^^^ 60 psi... oh man... i guess if the tire can handle it...
as for flat spots, just move the car arround once every two weeks, flat spots take a while to form...

get spare wheels, they are the most fun you can have.

get really really cheap ones, I bought my 3 rikens wheels for $100 and free tires.

just get a set of steelies and with no tires and sit them on a plank of wood so they don't damage your garage....(for storage)

just get a set of jack stands from crappy tire and let the car sit on it.

inflate the tires to max pressure.

I was thinking of getting these, but I found a cheap set of wheels for storage.
