I bought an 85 GT a month or so ago that had been parked in a garage for 2 years and turned over occasionally but not driven due to a bad fuel pump. I have the car back on the road after replacing the fuel pump and draining the tank and having it cleaned and sealed as well as redoing the front brakes. At least one of the tires is flat spotted from sitting in the same spot for so long. The flat spot is noticeable while driving. My question is if this will work itself out after driving for awhile? The tires are 215/55-16. Thanks
I agree. Some tires may work out after their driven a while on a hot road. Most though that have set for any years are permanently flat spotted. If you do store a car, you need to get the tires off the ground (keeping the suspension loaded), or remove them completely. Radial tires are far worse than bias. The original tires on my SuperBee would flat spot bad enough to shake the whole car after even a month. An hour of driving usually smoothed them out. I personally try not to leave a car set over a week or two without at least driving it around the block.
