Question Car ramps - what is a good reasonably priced set?

I am looking at some Rhino Gear ramps for around $40-$50. Anyone have a recommendation for our Camaros with 20 inch wheels? Looking to use for oil change.

Rhino ramps are crap, don't waste your money. Their angle of rise is too steep for the Camaro, they slide, and they aren't designed for wide tires.

I use Race Ramps. They are a little on the expansive side but they are among the best you can buy and you will never have to buy another set of ramps again.

And you'll see just as many or more posts from people who ended up replacing them.

Also they are so much lighter in weight, easier to maneuver, and hang easily in your garage.
Oh yeah, the two-piece ones make it very easy to get around on a creeper.
This is one garage tool that you get what you pay for.

Race Ramps here. Light as sh!t and extremely tough.

Race Ramps all the way. Think of it as a long term investment, and I recommend the 2 piece.

I've been using the Rhino without issue but want to get the two piece Race Ramps. Which length ramps are best? Automatically I'm thinking 67" but only because of the little extra height. Obviously pricing is better on the shorter set.
