For the same reason you never put a battery directly on a concrete floor. [emoticon]

^^Like!

I do think that dirt, parking long term on the ground will cause dry rot, but concrete, no issue.

@chevman might actually be old enough to remember when car batteries shouldn’t have been stored on concrete. But the invention of plastic battery cases eliminated that concern, about 60? Years ago?
Same with tires on concrete. Complete wives tale. And dirt as well. I guess maybe unless you’re parking your tires covered in mud, in the sun, for years or if they’re Michelins, lol. And it’s the sun that will get them far before anything else.

And how did solman’s china bomb tire story turn into the non existent hazards of storing tires and batteries on concrete?
Maybe he parked and drive his trailer on concrete and that caused them to explode at 2 years old? Lol

That has been discredited by many sources.

Every winter for 6 months my Boat Trailer has sat on concrete since October 2017 and my ENDURANCE tires look just fine to me. The tire battery comparison does not hold water with me.
