Default Service Ramps

Any opinions (or even factual input) on whether or not it is “wise” to put your dual rear tires on a “single tire” service ramp? It seems to me that it puts a lot of stress on the single tire that is holding up the weight that is normally supported by the dual tires.

Do a “Ramps” search on the WOG. Lots of info available to you here. Pair I made support both duals. For your long term health, ALWAYS supplement any ramp you may use or devise with 20 ton jack stands similar to below and available elsewhere.

There's just no reason to support the bus on a single rear tire unless you are changing a tire.
