It's always easy to comment on someone else's efforts, which of course I'm about to do. After using the plastic version of these and often being perched as high as possible on them when trying to get the trailer level, I think I'd flatten or round that sharp edge on the top. When I see the back edge of the plastic ones deforming the tire tread, I feel some empathy for what the tire must be experiencing.

I like plastic and metal. Matches my shiny rims although my old yellow chalks do clash.

Well you recommend those orange levelers that messed up my colors.

But I do like them.

Isn't it "Fusion" plastic-compatible Krylon paint that can fix that?

If you are going to use Krylon Fusion, take your glasses off ( ones with plastic lenses ) or wear goggles.
Fusion really does stick to plastics.

Still probably not as bad as our red chocks with the orange ramps. Maybe we need wood ramps like Myron!

But Myron paints Some of his wood stuff red. I recall seeing that handy-dandy outside step, all in red, that I want to copy.
