£30?

A bit steep?
Gosh I remember my first set of these, about £5 from Halfords, had an escort mk1, it wouldn’t go up the ramps, so took a harder go at it, went right over the ends, leaving ramps into dented sills
used jack and axle stands after that !
Do yourself a favour and look for eBay seller Rhyas - they do 'heavy duty car ramps'. They are sold out at the moment, but I am sure they will get some listed soon. Much better quality - double the number of rungs and extra strengthening. Less that £30 delivered.

I am just a customer - really impressed with the quality and value.
I’m going to buy these to make a jump for my car. Hitting these at 80mph I’m going to get some air time. Might also use these to get the car on two wheels. Nothing says player more than driving a Honda Civic down the street on two wheels.

You can make them less steep by adding some plywood runners at the front.
Unfortunately my car is too low so I need a ramp to get onto this ramp
I hate these skinny things that tear into your tyre gaps.

Good for a skinny tyre though.

Are they wide enough as mine are really skinny and precarious when you drive up?
Got mine yesterday from amaz prime 2.5 tones 26 pounds. And does seem heavy duty.

I picked up a set of these last week. The picture is nothing like the ones you get. I was surprised when they brought the box from the back as it was huge and they weighed 19kg. They're a lot more heavy duty that the website picture suggests. They comfortably fit my 225 tyres on them.

Nothing.
But using these is way quicker and personally I prefer getting under a car with these than supported by axle stands
34031173-QO0su.jpgJust bought one last weekend. Better than previous version but not suitable for cars with low clearance. It used to be £45 before not £60.

You can't value your own life very much then
Definitely check the front bumper clearance before buying .A lot of cars these days won't get onto the ramps without destroying your bumper.

Add another 8mph and you might time travel
Yeah but can they support an 80s transit van on a cold rainy night in Stoke?
Look at weight of the van and capacity of the ramp.

That's the one. However, the pictures of the Halfords ones you get look pretty good - similar to the Rhyas ones tbh. The original Halfords picture looked like the cheap ones you get on eBay.

I checked and paid £29.99 delivered. Not sure if or when they will get stock.

Hope this helps.
Made my own using some 8x2 timbers with decking boards - sized the slope to ensure all our cars can get up it.

Plenty of designs on youtube to make your own.

Almost makes an oil change an enjoyable task!
They look like the same design as mine, I couldn't get my Mondeo up them at all, had to jack the car up.

Actually I doubt they will work with many modern cars.

Wonder if there are two versions then because these state up to 185/14, which is pretty small.

I think you can get ramp extenders which may help with low cars. I ended up buying a pair of plastic ones designed for levelling caravans, just about gets my MR2 high enough to access the sump plug without having to get the jack and stands out

I had them with a Mk 1 too. Had to find a way to stop the car simply pushing them over the surface of the tarmac rather than driving up them.
OK, going to review these now that I bought them. As discussed above, purchased these as a jump for my Honda Civic to impress the ladies. I set them up near the street they hang out. Reached 60mph and got perfect alignment on them but the car didn’t get much air time. Ended up breaking my suspension and bursting my two front tyres.
A lot of modern cars won't go onto these as thetyres are too wide and they are too low / have too much bumper overhang

Definitely , almost damaged the bottom of my bumper a few years ago when I borrowed a set from a friend , didn't cross my mind originally but then as I started to drive onto the ramps a heard load scrapping sound where the bottom of the bumper caught the ramps. luckily no real damage as I didn't continue any further, but I have never used ramps since. Modern cars generally just don't have the clearance to use them.

Yep that was the problem I had, so took a bit of run at it, thank goodness for filler and under seal !

Exactly I can't even get a standard trolley jack under front or side of my m sport bmw .Have to buy a low slung one .
Not sure why they don't just sell Rhino ramps in Halfords these days. Much much nicer to drive up, and plenty strong. Nothing to rust, and lighter to carry. The Rhino ramps will leave less of a mark if the front does clip them on the way up/down too.
Used my Rhino ramps a bunch of times, and much faster than jacking up for smaller jobs, like changing light bulbs.
My car was a just a tiny bit to long/low underneath to go up my ramps, so I found some old Ikea Ivar shelves (wood) and popped them in front of the ramps, lifting the front just a couple of centimetres, and it meant the front was now high enough to clear the ramp.

2x carpet strips folded over bottom rungs.
Drive onto the strips 1st then the ramps cant move
