do you park on carpet?

Couple of my friends park their cars on pieces of carpet in the garage. One of them just called me and told me he found a piece for me. What are your thoughts/opinions on this? Hurt/help? Garage is unheated. Thanks.

Wife says I'm nuts

Yeah, last winter I did exactly that. I parked on pieces of carpet that I had. I was worried about the 1LE tires. And in Arizona, Scottsdale/Phoenix it doesnt get that cold.

Wife saw it and said. "Holy Shit, I know you have gone off the deep end. Why don't you just bring it in the house."

Contractor came over the following week to put a another garage door at the front of the garage to let my baby in at night.

Just kidding.

I may just be crazy but I do my rinse less wages inside the garage so that would eliminate the option of carpet for myself. Rubber mats seem like a good compromise.

I do not, my tires are made for hard surfaces and going fast. When they decided to carpet the dragstrip, I will consider it.

During winter storage I cover the floor under the entire car with vinyl mats and under each tire is a rubber backed carpet square but in the summer I don't park on anything.

I park on an old Persian carpet that our tenants destroyed to the point where this was all that we could really do with it . . .
