Airing down

Got my tub back from the sandblaster and put it back onto my frame, since i lifted the chassis +/- 8cm, it won't fit in my garage without airing down the tires.
Won't the tyres be destroyed if let them sit like this for a couple of months? I still have a lot of bodywork to do before I'll have it ready to go.

Some options

Option 1: If the cieling is higher than the door opening then just air back up.
Option 2: Put it on jack stands and remove the wheels.
Option 3: Get a set of cheep steel wheels without tires and some plywood to protect the floor.
Option 4: Lift kit for the garage.

Option 1: the garage door rails are too low.
Option 2: Have to move it in and out of my garage often so this would be a pain in the ass.(already is a pain in the ass, ever try to push a cruiser with 0 psi in the tyres? Heavy as hell)
Option 3: My budget is VERY tight so don't have the extra money for this.
Option 4: Could work :flipofff2:

Tought of maybe ratcheting (don't know if this even is a word in English) the axle to the frame, I only need 3-4 cm to get it in. But will this affect the springs in a bad way?

yeah, dont tie the frame to the body

what i would do is leave the roof, the top fibreglass part and the gutter off the car, that should give you 8cm

or throw your old 31s back on, unless they are 31s, then i dont know
