Any one buy car/tire skates? I bought a set from Harbor Freight and they suck. I can't even move the car. Which are good?

I have some from Menards. They are Tool Shop brand and they work well. Weren't that expensive either. I move my full size trucks around on them. Your floor has to be pretty clean though.

I have a set (4) and love 'em. They make moving the car around the garage so easy and are convenient for working on the car. They also increase the ground clearance a bit. They help when working on the steering too.

I got mine 3 years ago when they were on-sale. Summit I think. Money well spent.

I need a set. Would you be interested in selling the set you have?

Richard,
I bought some new wheels with ball bearings. If these work I will keep them, if not I would consider selling them real cheap.

The new wheels worked. I can now move the car around but it does take 2 people to get it going.

That's the problem with Harbor Freight stuff, by the time you get done dicking with them to make them work it would have been cheaper to just buy quality stuff in the first place, especially if you put any value on your time.

I bought a ATV/Motorcycle lift off them.($59.99) Put it together and it was missing the release pin. After 3 months of e-mails and phone calls to Cali. I finally get the parts. Get this, all I needed was the release pin, ($1.00) the spring, ($1.00) and the rubber seal.($1.00) It was $3.00 plus $29.00 shipping U.S. which I thought was kind of high. They sent me the whole jack!!!!! WTF. Now after all that, it still doesn't work right and FED-UP sent me a bill for and additional $15.35. Never....never again.

Mike.
