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...

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