park with tires on the dirt

We just bought a new Solara, I park it off my driveway in the dirt. Should I put down pavers or rubber mate to keep the tires out of the dirt?

I would if for no other reason than to keep it from sinking.

I have mine sitting on spaced wood planks buried in the ground.

The dirt is not the primary issue. Sun UV rays are. Keep them tires pumped, chocked, and covered.

Yes...you want to keep moisture away from the tire as much as possible when stored...I'd sit it on some type of mat

Our 5th wheel sits on a seasonal site all year. Tires rest on 2X8 PT wood with roof shingles on top.

When it rains hard, the wheels in the dirt will get..well, dirty. If you camp sveral times a season no biggie. During winter storage throw down some crushed gravel. Good drainage and ventilation.
