Jack reccomendations.

Hello,

I am looking into plastidipping my rims. I was wondering if anybody had some recommendations for a jack stand. Would I be able to use the factory jack to get the car tall enough for some jack stands?

I could get a set of 4 jack stands to be able to do all 4 wheels at once if so. I read that this is a decent brand:

or I could get a kit like this one:

Thoughts?

Don't buy dura last anything. Ever. It's junk. The car parts are equivalent to harbor freight junk. The jacks and anything with moving parts is even worse. I have no idea why anyone would shop at autozone. I won't even call them anymore when I'm price shopping.

Harbor fright. Sells one, but I have two because I do not like to twist the car.
