Tires while parked

I have what may be a silly question.

I have a 2004 Sunseeker. When parked for extended periods of time, does it make sense to move the RV slightly forward/backward once in a while to prevent low spots on tires? There’s a lot of weight on our RV tires and I remember having an old fixer-upper car that sat for a long time. The tires got warped and when I drove it again, the whole car would shake from being parked for such a long time. In this case with the RV, we sit still for 3-4 months at a time.

Thanks!
Rich

Definitely won't hurt them to move from time to time. Guess it just depends how long it will be parked. One of the biggest things is keeping them properly inflated and out of direct sunlight. Any simple cover for tires in the sun will go a long way toward preventing dry rot.

The old bias ply tires would get a flat spot from sitting so it was good to move them, with the radial tires now days I think its six of one and half dozen of another. Someone like WMTire would have better info.
