    when my car is storaged in my garage for the winter.
    I put max tire pressure in the tires, once a month i push the car a little bit (20inch) so it won't be on the same spot every time

    10 months is a long time. How old are the tires now? I'd be checking for dryrotting.

    Mine used to get flattspotted everytime the car sits for more than a couple days, it went away within the first 2 miles. When I store my car for extended periods of time put thick styrofoam sheets under each tire works like a champ.
