Following on from my Editorial in the last issue, I asked
CM readers for their opinions on plastic ramps. With many readers offering suggestions, I eventually went with Andy Powis’s recommendation of these Rhino Ramps, which are made in the US. They cost £50 plus £10 delivery from a UK supplier. So far, I’ve used them for two cars with 16in tyres and there seems to be room to comfortably fit 18in tyres, given that the width of the ramps is 270mm in the tyre-seating area. My Skoda Octavia 1U, having been lowered by 35mm, did have trouble getting on the ramps, because the front valance has drooped on the offside. I used two chucks of wood to get it onto the first stage of the ramps and this did help a bit.
Still, I’m pleased with the ramps so far. See here https://bit.ly/2cc8ccz
