I don't think it matters one way or the other at this point.
You folks can draw your own conclusions from the data.

The article seemed clear to me and to Portagie1968; we just drew different conclusions from the verbiage. Let it rest.

Data? Did I miss the link to some relevant data?

I was refering to the two links:

Bridgestone Commercial Truck Tires

and

Storing Batteries on Concrete

From what the Bridgestone piece says, it doesn't seem like they are recommending putting anything down between the tires and concrete.

"Concrete is not the tire enemy some people think it is.
We would recommend the following steps in storing a vehicle:
1. Make sure the floor / ground surface is free of any petroleum product contamination (Oil, grease, fuel, etc.) since petroleum products will attack rubber and can cause significant damage to compound characteristics.

"3. Place a barrier such as plastic, cardboard, or plywood between the tires and the ground surface."

Notice in note #1 they specify "floor/ground", but when they talk about putting a barrier down, they only talk about "the ground".
You are correct that it appears pretty clear.
But many shop concrete floors are oily, and that would definitely require something to protect the tires.
I could eat of my shop floor, so I think I will be ok!

From my point of view, it is a moot point and sure not worth arguing about. Do what you want, put something down or don't put something down.

All kinds to make a world. Won't hurt anything to put wood down.

Since my driveway is not level left to right, the left side tires are on a pair of 18x18 concrete pavers and the right side is right on the asphalt.

I see there was no disagreement that batteries on concrete was an old wives tale, though.
