Pic files too large so posted this link for visuals https://www.triumphexp.com/forum/tr6-tech-forum.2/rubber-to-rubber-vs-rubber-to-concrete.1779249/

Relative inexpensive way to keep tires off winter cold concrete floors helps eliminate front to rear/side to side guessing when parking your car in it's garage spot

1) Park your car in garage where you want it

2) Place car/truck floor mats next to tires with rear of mat even with rear edge of tire

3) Back up just enough so front of tire even with rear of mat slide mat in front of front tire drive over floor mat ridge stop adjust to exactly where you want your car to be positioned. Slide a oil pan between mats to collect where it marks it's spot you good to go

[FONT=&quot]Brainstorming potential improved idea on mats ordered 2 more front mats as seen under front tires they will replace small mats on rear tires. Instead of placing parallel on floor will place perpendicular with most of mat visible on outside of tire perhaps afforded more approach line up/visibility tire to mat, we'll see![/FONT]
