Default ramps

Is there a brand of ramps that I can drive my PT up on to change oil?

I have the Rhinos. They are tough but very lite. My car is lowered pretty much and it just clears the ramp. If your car is lowered, make sure you can get it under the front lip and back to the tire before you buy them. My buddy couldn't use them on his Z some years ago because it was too low and long in the front so I got a screamin' deal on them.

Im lowered 1.75 in the front and 3 in the rear and I use the rhino ramps...ummm...somewhat easily. The ramp hits the bumper as soon as it touches the tire. 1/8 of an inch lower and it probably wouldnt work.

Thats the answer. I am about 1.75 front and rear. You are lower in the back so the nose is just slightly higher off the ground. Mine JUUUUSST clears with a little scrape. If I air up my tires it helps it get up on the ramp. Good thing I have a comperssor in my garage!

I have the RHino ramps, but I see there's new ones out that have a flat piece at the end, before the ramp starts - that should prevent your tire from pushing the ramps away, which happens sometimes - otherwise looks like rhino ramps. Saw them in Autozone ad? Pep Boys?

I got a set of ramps from Big Lots in Florida. They have the piece in front of the ramp that the tire rolls on firse to keep it from rolling away. They are made of a hard plastic, comes in 3 pieces so it is easy to store!!! $20.00 on sale, very pleased!!!

I have never had a problem with the Rhino ramps Pushing. There are rubber pads underneath it to help prevent this....

Mine pushed once but I had gotten some oil on the rubber. Just cleaned it with some brake cleaner and no more problems.
