Wheel Stands

Was looking to get a good set of wheel stands, was curious which models everybody was using and what spools/accessories are necessary? Thanks

Here in Australia we have "Anderson" paddock/race stands, tubing well made and finished very very well. Made here in Australia best quality to any imported stands. Spools are spools any do the job.

I'll also suggest PitBull stands! Very high quality. I also have a nice Vortex rear stand but don't use it much since I got the PitBull stands. Using Vortex spools.

Any 8mm spool will do. Buy quality if you can. Also, another vote for Pit Bull.

On Geoff's recommendation way back, I bought an ABBA stand. Very happy with it.
