Just got and put my set of axle stand pads. Very happy with them, quality seems excellent.

Already put to use.

Thanks Ian!

Which ones should I get guys? These are Halfords jack stands
75mm on the inside with a 40mm wide dip of 5mm (no idea the radius) in the middle
Just worked it out lol (42.5mm radius arc... hrmmm that doesn't sound right)

I'd go for the large one, which should fit nicely across the flat part of that profile, providing the largest area of support for the jacking point.

The steel plate should prevent it dipping in the middle.

or you take an angle grinder to the edges of the pad base to form something like the inverse of the dip so it all sits nicely on the stand.

^^yes, in the club shop. You need to click on 'parts', they tend not to appear on the landing page for some reason.

Just out of curiosity, are these still available in the shop? I couldn't see them or the section parts as mentioned.

I'm using a phone so that could be the problem?
