    Mine are too, based on the age alone...which sucks b/c they still have quite a bit of meat left on them. Probably next spring.

    The plastic would make for easy clean up as well.

    Having the car up on jack stands, does this give some of the suspension a break? I have the orginal stock suspension and it still rides the same as when I bought it, ~30k ago. Or is the weight of the suspension heavy enough to have an adverse effect and strech it in the opposite way. Or thirdly, am I putting too much thought into this...

    the reason you want the tires off the ground and the weight of the car off of the tires is because these high speed rated low profile tires have many more layers of belts to try and retain sidewall profile. yes the synthetic polymers wont necessarily crack or dry rot per se, but it does not want to adhere to the synthetic polymer cords that are bonded layer over layer in various angles and different chemical compositions within one tire. ie they want to tear apart and seperate, the constant force in one spot is counter productive to the integrity of the tire overall, it does not flat spot, but actually deforms the cord/belts and technically when you have that slight vibration from the sus[ension when you start driving it again is the cords trying to rebend and reshape to the forces being exerted upon them.

    I notice it in my bridgestones alot.
