Rear Jack Stand Point for flat top jack stands

I have ESCO 3 Ton jackstands that have an about 4 inch diameter horizontal flat surface to seat to the car.



I need to put my 4 mounted snow tires and rims on my 2017 Sport SE and I found an area in the front that is flat where I can put the jackstands, but in the rear, I only see the pinch weld. These jack stands can work with the pinch weld, but I don't like using the pinch weld and there is always the risk of bending or scraping the paint off.

Anyone know of any rear area (besides the center jack point) that will accomodate two flat top jack stands???

There's an area of the pinch weld in the rear specifically designed for lifting. You can't miss it.

Below is a photo of one of the four reinforced pinch-weld jacking points on the Accord. This pinch-weld jacking point is recommended in the Owner's Manual when raising one wheel at a time, as when changing a wheel and tire. Although not in the Owner's Manual, this is where jack stands should be placed to avoid damage to the body. The Honda dealers place each lift-arm foot of the shop lift on each of the pinch-weld jacking points.

NOTE: In order to use jack stands at the pinch-weld jacking points for raising both rear or front tires off the floor, you will have to use the center jacking points in the front and rear of the car.

Also shown is my home-made floor jack pad which I made out of hard wood. The car's pinch-weld jacking point pad fits in the slot which is shallow enough so that the adapter does not touch the rocker panel. I believe you can buy ready-made floor jack pads on the aftermarket.

If you are only changing the wheel/tire, there is no reason to put the car on stands - as long as you are not crawling under the car for some other reason.

Perhaps OP wants just to rotate tires. I am finding having all wheels jacked up makes servicing brakes and bleeding them much easier...I know I can do all that by jacking one wheel up at a time.

If I can read English correctly, pretty sure it sounds like he is swapping summer with winter wheels/tires, which can be done one wheel/tire at a time, which does NOT necessitate the need for jack stands.

Everyone is of course entitled to their opinion. Mine is that unless it's an emergency situation I wouldn't care to change even an individual tire without some type of additional support like jackstands.

This might be a better option than trying to adapt a hockey puck (that will take some work too, if you wanted to create a slot):

One corner at a time:
- Loosen lug nuts enough
- Use hydraulic jack and jack up that corner at the tow hook or pinch weld
- Take lug nuts off, take existing wheel off, put new wheel on, put lug nuts back on, tighten enough
- Lower car and torque lug nuts to spec

Why do you need to put jack stands under when changing a wheel? Rotating tires sure, not when changing wheels.

Jack on the rear tow hook and then you can do the back all in one shot. No need for jack stands when changing tires.

Don't floorjack on the pinch welds unless you have a pinch weld adapter for your floorjack. It'll crush them otherwise.

I never use jack stands when rotating tires.....just do one wheel at a time using the space-saver spare (if you have one).

I'm in agreement with an earlier post using the frame jack points. Easier to jack half the car in one go than do each corner at a time. I use this method when switching winter<>summer tires. For tire rotations getting the whole car off the ground makes more sense.

The pinch weld on this car appears to be extremely sturdy. I doubt jacking at this point would bend it, even without one of the hockey pucks assuming the jack has a flat surface.

Because anything you jack up can fall. If the car falls when changing a wheel you're not going to get crushed and killed, but you can certainly be injured. The car can also be damaged by the fall. And it's really inconvenient to have your car sitting on the ground. Now how are you going to lift it? Admittedly the main reason to use jack stands is to not get killed, the secondary reasons are more than worthwhile in my view.

Come back and tell us how that works out for you. I can guarantee it won't end pretty. Pinch welds ARE NOT jacking points.
