Tires on pressure treated lumber

Does anyone know if it is detrimental to tire rubber to park long term on pressure treated boards?

If the travel trailer is in my driveway, and it is about 330 days of the year, it's on pressure treated lumber. No obvious issues to the tires (or lumber ) to date. I've had my current trailer over 2 years and I've done the same for the previous 2 trailers as well.

I was told at Freightliner class that an impermeable barrier, such as plastic or good coat of paint, should be on the boards to prevent wicking of oil/compounds from the tires. Same applies to dirt, concrete and asphalt. Seems reasonable and cheap insurance for the tires.

Thanks for the responses. I think I will put a heavy coat of paint on the boards

Suggest that you buy some $0.79 vinyl self sticking tiles at Lowes or Home Depot. Cut them to width of your boards. They may not stick at first, but the weight of the RV will make them stick.

I use cutting boards which you can get at any flea market for about a buck a piece. They are impermeable and can be placed on any surface.
