Default Ramps

My last car was an 03 TL and i learned on a truck. The TL i put on 2x4s and the truck...was a truck. But im thinking my 13 WRX is too low even at stock to raise it on wood.

Anyone tried? Are rhino ranps worth it for me now? Are regular rhino ramps a small enough incline for my car to get up w/o scraping? If not, suggestions for a small incline ramp brand?

You might want to check out Raceramps/Race ramps - kind of pricey but worth it IMHO. They're made of plastic foam and are pretty light and quite tough with an anti-skid surface top and bottom. Unlike Rhino ramps, these are "solid" (no hollow areas underneath) and are rated to handle 3000 lbs. each. Also available in extended lengths and low profiles for lowered vehicles. I use mine for doing oil changes.

I use rhino ramps. With my front lip I can just shove them under the front wheels and then drive up on them. I drive the front wheels up on the ramps, then jack up the rear and put them on jack stands. That little bit of extra room you get with both ends up in the air makes a huge difference.

I've always hated ramps because they slide too easy.
That said, raceramps are decent.

rhino ramps are okay but not made for low cars. I had to add a ramp extension with a piece of wood. Drive onto the wood then onto the rhino ramp

Race Ramps are great. I have been very impressed. They are light, strong, and haven't slipped at all. If you get them, be sure to make sure you particular vehicle will fit. I purchased a set of race ramps that did not clear the front fascia of my WRX by just a hair so needed to get the 54" long ramps and they work perfectly!
