    Hi All,

    Im after something like this from halfords

    Halfords | Halfords Car Ramps

    Thing is the halfords ones are for skinny wheels. I need something thatll suit 18's at 225 tyre size.

    Any suggestions lads?

    Cheers :happy:

    I have a set of ramps, TBH they are as much use as a chocolate fire guard as the bumper hits them way before they come into contact with the tyre!

    Depends largely on how low the car is dave. Neither of
    My a3's can go forwards onto a set of ramps. I can reverse up a set though, and when the backs up the front bumper is about 10mm off the ground!

    I've even had to but a low height alloy jack to jack mine up, and I didn't even think it was that low!
