Additional Information

Block Size Tire blocks vary in height from below 6" to above 10" with most approximately 8" high. You can specify the height of the blocks if you want smaller or larger steps in your mounting block.
Weight A typical 8" tire block weighs approximately 100 pounds.
Stability When the tire blocks are stacked the shear weight keeps them in place. When stacking higher than 24" additional stability is suggested by driving a 2" pipe through the center of the block into the ground below or driving large staples/rods directly through the blocks.
