How long are you thinking? Months or Years? I think most of the winter storage stuff applies even for longer than a winter. But if you are talking a few years I'm sure there's more to be considered. Do a search on winter storage and you'll get tons of info.

As far as tires are concerned I'd park it on plastic and air them up to the max and that'll prevent flat spotting to.

+1 on Stabil with FULL tank of gas

float charger on battery

pop open the doors, trunk, engine lid

small blocks under wiper blades or just get new blades when out of storage

I like to store cars with a fresh oil change too

car cover

I wouldn't recommend starting it if stored for only a few months, may be different if it's years. Cold starts are the worst on engines. If it is years I'd start it every year or bi-yearly and have the time to warm it up to temp.

Good luck! You'll see more if you do the search...
