any interest in these?

Built these for my car to get it off the tires while it sits over winter, and threw a few pics on fb. Got a lot of good feedback on there, and was wondering how many people on an actual car forum would be interested in getting a set. Can be made for any bolt pattern/hub size, and can be custom for each car. Price point would prob be close to 250$ a set. If I get enough interest, I might pull the trigger on a cnc plasma table for home.

How much weight you think they could hold? And are a different bolt pattern possible?

What is the benefit to these over jack stands?

This set up using 1/4" steel, and a single support that's only 1.5" wide should be fine up to 4k lbs. Actually wanted the support wider, but didn't have the material to cut them wider. Depending on the weight of the vehicle, I can use thicker material, and use more than one support. Any bolt pattern/hub size combo is possible.

I personally like not having my shocks fully extended just hanging there all winter long.

Those are really cool, seem like they could be a little more stable than standard jack stands too. Would also help a lot with alignment work and stuff where the suspension needs to be compressed.

Have you thought about doing them height adjustable? That would be a winner for me.

Anything is possible, would just cost a little more. Even thought about doing base plates with casters.

Could you do something like this https://www.flyinmiata.com/hub-stands.html
I think a problem with the stand like you have is what will happen if the car has a couple degrees of camber. Is there enough flex in the base to let it sit level

Ya, was thinking of something like that for the adjustable height request.
