Do you recommend jacking up a 27' travel trailer to eliminate tires sitting on concrete during a 4-5 month off-season?

Given the recommended tire replacement for tandem axle trailers of 3-5 years, I do not see much advantage to jacking up the trailer given the potential for damage to axles etc. Better to confirm the actual load on the tires and inflate to the level for the tires to support 110% to 115% of the measured load (do not exceed max wheel rating)

In my case, the load on each tire is 1550-1600 lbs. My load range D tires are rated at 2275 lbs at max pressure of 65 psi, which is the cold pressure I run them at. Given that the trailer is parked on concrete, is there any  benefit to putting wood or another insulator under the tires when stored?
