When I use mine to change my oil I also put the jack stands in place, and I stack my summer/winter tires on either side - not to support the weight, but in case the ramps faiI, my backup system should give me enough time to move out of the way.

Don't forget wheel chocks to prevent the vehicle from rolling back.

Are you sure it's these exact ramps and not a different brand and/or weight capacity? Looking at CCC, the OP price is on par with amazon's lowest recorded price (which was only for a few days by the looks of it.) I don't see any old RFD threads of these being any cheaper either.

I've already stated how I feel about plastic ramps, but for those who want them, this deal is about as good as it gets I think.

Do they really get high enough to get under your car and do an oil change?

Truck.
And it never will if I keep using common sense.
I guess humanity can rest easy knowing you are safe and sound and their future is as well.
You have to be quite dumb to store these outside under the elements and expect them to not deteriorate.
I offered my personal experience for those who would care for it and are looking at purchasing such a product that's completely safe if used and stored as recommended.
I'd personally go for a titanium alloy, no way I'd put myself under a bunch of scrap steel.
Then again, maybe Adamantium would be even better, but I'm not sure how it stacks against Vibranium...anyone more experienced in the field care to weigh the pros and cons ?

These will add to the clearance your car already has from the ground. If you have 5-6", with the ramps you'd end up at 13-14" which is the minimum for a slim person to get under. On the other hand if your vehicle is really low, then it might not be enough.
I have well over 12" clearance to begin with so adding another 8" gives me all the room I need to comfortably work under the vehicle.

I have used these to change oil on an acura rdx and hyundai accent.

The clearance on the RDX is much better. The accent has enough clearance to get the job done.

I've used the scepter ones with a Toyota echo, Subaru sti, Mazda cx3, dodge caravan, and subaru crosstrek multiple times without issue.

These are great products, very secure and easy to use.

I use these under my GMC diesel. The truck weighs 8000lbs, around 5000lbs on the front wheels and 3000 on the back wheels.

I used the other ramps that were on sale at Canadian Tire and they always seem to slip as I try to go up it. Do these do the same thing? Or is there something I'm supposed to do before I use them so it doesn't slip?

Not sure what you are doing, but you want to park your car and put the ramps right up tight to your wheels before driving up them.

If you're taking a running start you might push them.

Still sounds very dangerous, risking your life under some rusting chunk of metal trash. I pay a professional to use a professional grade lift as I watch from behind a glass wall (of course I'm at least 6 feet away from the glass).

I have an earlier version of this ramp that has re-enforcing plastic webbing underneath it and is not stack-able. This one appears to be, so they must have a much stronger frame then they used to make it.
edit: I think I have have the "Scepter Pro Ramp", but I paid $29 on sale 5 years ago .. prices have definitely jumped! My tires fit "on" the ramp, the rhinos seem to have the tire hang a bit over the ramp from the photos.

Jesus - I was going to take a look at these in store but forget that now. I understand the vast majority of people have no issue but to roll the dice and risk being one of the people who has this happen to them... some of these just splintered and disintegrated with a vehicle up on them. One guy says he was pinned under the vehicle. Nope.

Scary stuff there, I never actually looked at the new rhino ramps. Looks like that redesign created a bunch of failure points on it. Not sure who thought it would be a good idea to have all those deep crevices in it. I'll stick with scepter branded ones.
