It's important to have good wheel chocks around, whether you're working or playing. You can get by with spending just a little money, especially if you're not going to use them a whole lot. For example, the Camco, Fasmov, and MLTools models are great choices to have hanging around your home garage if you're storing large vehicles or plan to do any mechanic work. The Torin Big Reds are well-suited to smaller vehicles like sedans an RVs, and their small size makes them a great choice for tossing in your trunk, in case of flat tires. Both YM pairs are great and inexpensive options, and although they do stink quite a bit, they'll air out well after a few weeks. The Fastways are meant exclusively for dual-axle vehicles, and make a great companion to a good set of wheel stabilizers. The Tri-Lynx are helpful if you commonly haul a trailer around, as they double as a stand for the tongue. The Roadblocks are extremely effective, although they may not be ideal for busy shopss, partially due to their protruding metal handle. But if you really want the best, Vestils are awfully hard to beat. They have incredible structural integrity, and won't flatten, warp, or crack, plus, they're pretty heavy, and have tons of grip. In fact, they're used to secure some of the largest vehicles on the road, so they'll almost certainly work for most pickup trucks.
