I'm not driving much due to the Corona virus and everything shut down in Michigan. How do you prevent flat spots in tires? Thoughts?

If you're worried about it, just take the car around the block once a week. Flat spots are more of a concern for people who put sports cars away for winter.

If I sat for months, I'd have flat spots, too!

Just go out and drive your car. Flat spots are normal occurrences on tires that were driven to the point of being hot and then parked. When they cool, they take on the shape of how they were parked. Simply driving them solves the issue, which isn't an issue at all.

Exactly what the others said just drive for about 10 minutes and those flat spots will flex right out.
