I have a 68 Camaro and a 63 Land Rover that I store for the winter. The Camaro gets put on blocks with all 4 tires in the air. For the Rover, I just inflate the tires to 65 psi, and I have not had a problem with flat spots. You can also try tire cradles to eliminate flat spots. I have no experience with them, but you can check them out at www.tirecradle.com.
