Leaving car on axle stand during refurb of rear wheel

Recommended Posts

Last week I had cup 2s fitted . I thought all was well with the fitment until at the weekend I washed the car and discovered that the guy had basically scraped the last weights off with a screwdriver or similar.🤬

In summary the part where utmost care required has been done fine and what could have been done simply by using parts cleaner ( the easy bit ) messed up🙄

The manager of the outlet concerned was quite shocked this had been done and as such agreed to refurb the inner section of the 2 wheels.

So my plan is to take one rear wheel off the car at a time and take to the bodyshop for repair/paint. I have removed wheels many a time on my prior lotus cars for brake work etc I have done myself so I am familiar with jacking stickers etc. However, I plan to jack one side at a time using rear sticker location then use an axle stand. With the jack still in place ( supporting car on the sticker) can anyone suggest a good location to insert an axle stand for the 24 hours or so required? Dont really want to remove rear tray if not needed, thanks
