Watch this guy use two wheel hangers...
Before I installed studs I used the BMW wheel alignment pin. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-bmw ... 111093774/
It's nice because you don't have to screw it in, and there's a spot to store it in the trunk lid tool kit.

Either way, the key is to only raise the car enough so that the tire is just a few mm off the ground, that way you barely have to lift it.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Finally did it today. I have never done it so late really feel guilty.

Finally did both cars this week. Feels good to be back on summer tires. I think my winters are done, pretty close to the wear bars and kinda disappointed they only lasted ~2 seasons.

Remembered the hard way why I wanted to get the wheel hangers @Ecsta & @ES_Revenge suggested here in the forums.
Added wheel hangers to my Amazon wish (filler) list.
Wondering if 1 will do or if 2 is better?
Makes it so easy. I'd get 1 and try it. I can see 2 being handy if your wheels are heavy or you have big brakes, but I find with 1 it makes it so easy that I can't be bothered getting a second.
