Flatstoppers — Because putting your car up on blocks is so last century


From the website:


    Store Your Collector Cars Without Ruining the Tires

    When a car sits for months at a time the tires develop flat spots that become permanent.

    So no matter how often you check your alignment or balance the wheels, you just can’t get that shimmy out of the steering wheel.

    That’s why here at the Herrington Collection, every one of our vintage Ferraris are parked on Flatstoppers.

    At 22” long and 14” wide, Flatstoppers’ concave surface cradles and supports your tires in the round, distributing the weight far more evenly than on hard, flat concrete so tires stay true and ready to roll.



I can't tell you how much sleep I've lost over the years fretting about the flat spots on my collector cars' tires.

One less thing to worry about.

Matching set of 4 (one size fits all): $259 (collector car not included).

A less exotic use: Storing a seldom-used RV, tires on which are more susceptible to flat spots and/or dry rot than tread wear (@ $1,200-1,400 replacement per set). And overpriced, too, like most RV gadgets.

$259, huh?

I guess they figure if you can afford a 'collector car', you won't pay too much attention to how much they may charge for a low-tech piece of plastic...

Maybe they are right?
