I use a pair and they help take away the forward/backward motion.
Haven't had a problem putting them on the way I do or have them loosen from cooling and I put them on as soon as I get backed or pull into a site.
As for stressing a tire while hooking up, I doubt very much there is any more stress applied than when turning. I will continue my wayward method.

Oh well, I've been told I was wrong to use my cruise control while backing into a site!

Just put the blame things on and enjoy!

I think I'm gonna cry.
