Park your car on flat-jack® air pillows during long periods of standing still. This is the best tire protection not only for vintage cars. All vehicles with long periods of not being used are affected by the flat spot problem e.g also sports cars and campervans etc.
The trick: Distribution of the vehicle’s weight on a larger area
There is basically only one reasonable solution to avoid flat spots: distribution of the entire weight of the vehicle onto a large contact area. With the new flat-jack® air pillows this contact area is enlarged by more than five times. The thermic decoupling from the ground also reduces the temperature affection on the tyre.
Unique: Reduction and compensation of lateral forces on the entire chassis
The greatest difference to rubber foam pillows is the " freedom of movement" for your car as a result of the use of flat-jack® air pillows. Chassis tensions, lateral forces, suspension and bearings are absorbed by using the flexible air pillows. A major contribution to keep the value of your automotive treasure.
Beside damage to the car body and engine due to corrosion, aging of rubber parts etc. the tyres play a major role during their all-year load test in a garage or car show room. Tyres of vintage cars that don’t see black asphalt too often are mainly affected by this problem.
Owners of vehicles with long periods of stand still like to put their automotive treasures on especially soft ground so that the pressure point on which the weight of the vehicle touches the ground becomes wide and large. On camping sites one can see that often styrofoam or thick rubber mats are used for this purpose.
The thought behind is completely right but unfortunately these materials age – especially styrofoam – and after a short period of time the pressure distribution is close to zero again.
As soon as your vehicle is parked on correctly inflated flat-jack® air pillows you can discover the effect of the new "freedom of movement" of your car. Forces that normally act towards the side during standing still can now be distributed on the air pillows.
The success: wheel suspension and bearings are loaded more equally during long periods of standing still.
