i would build a stand with a horizontal pole going through the center and suspend them by the rim center off the ground an tiny bit

second choice is flat stock them with cardboard between the ground and all tires

maybe rotate the bottom every once in a while and keep em inflated

Trash bags is a good one

ideally if they are inside they should be ok I have swampers that are 9 years old inside on a full size Blazer

they just flatspot a little after a while but no dry rot

Where are they being stored? I keep my TSLs under my back deck (no room anywhere else), stacked under a tarp with old blankets in between them.
