Exclamation Rhino ramps

I just bought a set of these ramps and debating if I should keep them or not. I'm hearing mixed reviews on them. Has anyone here have any experience with them?

If you can get your car on them then great. A lot of cars with low ground clearance or long front overhangs can't get on them.

Just be wary of them moving around on slippery surfaces such as epoxy floors or slick concrete. I've used them on asphalt with no issues.

They work great for stock-height cars and trucks, but basically impossible to get a lowered 240 on.

They work fine with my lowered 240. Just use the old 2 X 4 trick before the ramp and make sure that the ramps don't slip on a smooth surface, as previously stated. Of course, my car is lowered (1.5 inches) and not slammed to the ground (2 inches plus). For very low cars, these ramps might be hard to work with. I miss the old steel ones (mine were stolen) and was told that aren't made anymore (sales tactic/BS?).

I use them for the back tires on my truck when loading / unloading my car off the trailer.

They work great for that. If you're thinking you're gonna drive straight up them with a lowered 240 it's not gonna happen.

work good for changing oil if you can get up on them, problem is if these are your only way of getting under the car you can't take your wheels off. So kinda pointless to me.

He's probably concerned about the strenght and durability. No one wants a car falling on top of them.
As said above, what surfaces to use these on and what to be careful of when using them
Safety first

If it's strength he's worried about I routinely back up my 6500# Ram 2500 with 6000# of gear in an enclosed onto them. They'll be fine for your 2500# 240.

I?ve own 3 sets of these for all my cars and they worked great!

My cars are lowered too, so what I use is a 6in(L) x 8in(W) x 2in(height) Wood Lumber to to get it up higher and then drive it on the ramp.

They're plastic. Of course they're not going to grip into smooth surfaces. Either brace them in place with something or use the traditional drive up on wood and jack the fucker up method.

Yes, but note that he's on grooved concrete which is keeping that setup planted. If he would be on a smooth surface, those would be susceptible to sliding as well which doesn't help you.
