Protect tires when parking on stone

Does anyone have a recommendation for something to put under RV tires when parking on stone? Lynx Blocks cause the leveling system to extend too much further.

I park mine on treated lumber. 8" or 10" wide depending on how good you are at pulling it on.

Protect them from what? They're made to be pulled on stone, concrete, dirt or blacktop.

X2, I use 4' x 1' piece of PT plywood on each side when I park for winter storage.

The 3/4" stone in my parking area has some relatively sharp edges. Nothing I mind leaving it on for a week or two but if it's going to sit a while I feel better about rolling it onto the plywood.

If you're worried, get 4 rubber door mats and park on them.

Lynx blocks are like 11/2" thick only? Are you saying your leveling system won.t work with a 2x6 or 2x8 under the tire? Something is wrong with the system. That's only about 13/4" rise. Are you sure the stroke is extending all the way?

That is a much better idea than my boards. A lot lighter & easy to move as well.
