    I gave up on plastic blocks last year and upgraded to a sele tion of timber block (recycled bits of the small pallets our aircon units are delivered on)

    I carry half a dozen that give me a great range of lifts depending on how they are configured.

    A good hard wood block split across 45 deg will do ,the plastic ones can be a bit skiddy on wet tarmac.
    Also do carry a few bits of flat squires to build up jack height if required.

    I got a pair like THESE but fixed a bit of 1/2" plywood along the bottom to protect them when using on stoney ground

    No need to measure wheels their universal width ways

    45 deg ? , maybe if you have a 4x4 !

    I'd look for the tallest ones, you'll always find somewhere where they're not enough to level up

    Had my van for 7 years I always wild but never needed levelling ramp things. Iíve used the odd flat stone to drive onto but never felt the need to buy big lumps of plastic.

    A few pieces of wood for me, ex scaffolding planks cut down. Multi use, good under wheels on wet ground, also under bottle jack if needed, and use when securing scooter in garage.

    I use leveling chocks because when i put something on the worktop / table i like it to still be there when i go back to it and not to have slid off onto the floor.
