Question
Is there a way to stop tires from cracking when parked for long periods of time on a hot driveway

Answer
Hi Walt!....Usually covering up the tires or shielding them from the sun with a piece of plywood, is the most effective. Also making sure the tires are cleaned thouroughly before storing as well. Running your vehicle through a car wash to do this is probably the easiest method. I found a website that should help you out as well. Thanks for your question....Dave
