I've used two double stacked 2 x10's (Pressure Treated) for the last couple of years for the TT and they have worked out great. Besides they were laying around doing nothing from a previous project. The top piece is a little shorter than the bottom to make it easier for the tire to climb on without hitting it and pushing it along the ground. A couple of deck screws to hold them together and it's good to go. Make sure to drive the deck screws in far enough that they don't stick up above the surface I've done the same with the Motocross trailer with no problems for the last 10 years or so.

Also if you cut the ends off at an angle, like a little ramp, that makes life easier, too. I have 4 or 5 boards on my low side, so I need all the help I can get to climb up on there.

And no one has mentioned that the tire tread should NEVER NEVER overhang the edge of the leveling boards. That will ruin the tire in short order, leading to catastrophic failure. Check to make sure your tires are in the middle of the boards.

I just sit on the concrete floor but once a month I go out and start the generation and the engine and let them run for about 10 minutes then drive it forward 1/4 turn of the tires for it don't set in the same spot for the winter.

rubberized horse stall mat

In reply to your quest for material for your tires to rest on during off season, I have been using rubberized horse stall mat. I take one sheet (4' X 6') and cut it into 6" wide strips several being 2' long , several 3' long( there is enough for 2 trailers here). I simply lay the material on the ground and roll the trailer up on to it.
This mat also doubles as a trailer leveler when camping.
they are a little heavier than most other woods but,
they dont retain water
they dont rot,
they stack easy,
they dont slip when stacked,
trailer tires do not slip off when wet,
they store quite easy in the back of the truck box.
cost = 45$ or 22.50 $ per trailer.
good enough for the horse , good enough for the trailer!
