Hi all,
Just thinking about a set of ramps. Is it best to go for stepped ones or just the plain wedge shape?

had the wedges for a few years and not always big enough so got the stepped. Bigger and heavier but easier on the clutch and handbrake! Carry both now and use the wedges for the steadies if I can be bothered to use them.

I had stepped ones and, as already said, they are easier to use - especially if you're on your own.

However, I did not like the way that the tyre sat on top of the pointy-bit (technical term) if parked up for several days so I've swapped to sloped ramps - and a man to guide me up them (y)

Milenco quatro - not only stepped but also shaped to take the tyre. Solid, strong and never has issues sinking. I even use them on my other vehicles as standard ramps when doing the odd job.

I would like stepped ones for the extra height but as Janine said don't like how some dig into tyre, they seem to be made for smaller diameter tyres than 16" wheels

I wild park, I do carry stepped but have never had cause to use them as I tend to seek out a level spot.

we broke a few fiamma sloped ones before we got the Quattro milenco ones.
They are good except for their weight.
and bulkiness.
