A freind told me that Nitrogen is a good Idea to inflate tires with. I actually have a cylinder for use when brazing copper tubing. (it is run through at low pressure to keep the copper from oxidizing) Never tried it in tires though.

I used to jack the trailer up and put blocks under it to take the weight off of the tires when it was sitting for a long time. Car jack worked well for me.

It wouldn't hurt to cover the tires to prevent UV damage from the sun. Use black plastic garbage bags if you can't find anything else.

To prevent deformation of the tires, use some of these. Just enough to relive the weight from the tires but not so far that if it were to fall off there would be damage. Pumping the hubs full of grease in case any water is in there you won't run the chance of "exploding" your bearings

Trailer tire winterization?
This is my first year storing a boat on a trailer in my backyard. Do I need to do anything to the trailer tires (inflate/deflate, etc.), or is that a crazy question?
