A search for "tire storage" leads to all sorts of worthless stuff, and hardly seems worth the time to me. Earlier I searched specifically for "wood" within the only the Goodyear and Michelin web sites for North America to find anything authoritative - there was nothing, although that's where I found the care guides.

"tire storage Michelin", "tire storage Goodyear", and "tire storage Bridgestone" did lead to a Michelin Tire Storage page and another Every Day - Storage page (nothing new), a Goodyear RV tires Tire Storage page, and a Bridgestone / Firestone manual with a tiny storage section. The Goodyear page does have some interesting bits:
If tires are being stored outdoors, they should be raised off the storage surface
Don't store tires on black asphalt or other heat-absorbent surfaces
Note that
  • the asphalt concern is about heat
  • there is no concern expressed about concrete
  • storage loose and storage on the vehicle are separate scenarios
  • there is lots of guidance about inflation pressure

They also say that they should not be near reflective surfaces such as snow. We just put covers and hope to move the trailer some time. Believe one of them mentioned every three months for that.
