Default flat spot on tire-plane stand

Ive got flat spots on my foam tires,,,,whats the best way to get them out? Also am looking for a portable stand for my planes to bring to the field to attach wings etc. something collapsible and light weight if possible>

Thanks in advance

Over the years for an assembly and/or a bench stand I,ve tried many different types homemade and commercial as well as mounted types on field boxes but I keep coming back to these.

I am a gympy guy who works out of a wheelchair so I always assemble at a bench or spool table and if I am somewhere without tables I bring my own, this simple foam thing is just the best for me. The veticals pop out and it carries flat.

May be the foam will reshape by itself if you hang the plane for a while, not sure though.

Don't leave your planes on the wheels, I store mine vertically, nose down or up doesn't matter.

The one pointed by John is a good and light stand.

Some people build theirs themselves:

For sure they reshape back to normal.
Just take the pressure off and give 'em some time.
I moved a 5kg plane of the bench this weekend... it had sat there for almost one year and the foam was down to the hub. 
Looking normal today.
