Default floor jack stand placement

First I did a search to try and find the answer before posting. I am wanting to rotate my tires and paint my cailper at the same time which requires me to put my cruiser up on floor stands. I know where the spots are to jack the car up are but not sure were is the safest place to place the floor jack stands are recommended. Don't want to have any mishaps while car is jacked up.

Is it safe to use the cross support in the rear?

Thanks for you help.

This thread is mainly about using a floor jack,but it should give you a better idea......I personally would say on the frame rails as close to the tires without interfering with anything......jack point

I'm with ya, on the frame rails. Stay off the rockers just knocks off the paint and bends the lips.
