Flat spot prevention???

Is it just me or are all of these people being sucked into a product that has no merit?

Physic demand that the only way to prevent them is to move the tire often or take the weight off of it.

$78.00 !!! I think $7.80 would be a better price .
Drive a little bit more and problem ( if there is one) is corrected.

Flat spots on tires disappeared with bias ply tires. If radials, especially run flats, are kept at proper inflation there are no flat spots that will be noticed.

I have, but they were 40 bias ply off-road tires on my Bronco that I ran under 10 psi. After sitting more than a few days it was brutal, but it was fine after a couple of miles.
