Good idea! If you didn't, when you get a chance put something between the tires and the roof. Plastic, another piece of wood (With a hole for the vent of course!) or something. Tires when left on their sides tend to leave pretty permanent prints.

I would be worried about the oils/gassing from the old tires will put circle stain your roof

Common practice for people living in mobile homes is to place tires on top to keep the roof from rumbling in heavy wind. Doesn't look very good but makes it harder for the neighbors to steal your tires.

No marks so far. On the side you can't see I cut the sidewall completely off, this allows them to fit over skylights. I only leave them up for a day or 2 when a storm rolls through. Even if they did leave a slight stain I'm more then ok with that after the full replacement of everything on the roof a few years back.
