Wheel chocks can come in handy for a variety of purposes whether it be in your garage, truck, or trailer. Not only do they allow you to store the bike upright which saves space, they’re also great to use while working on your motorcycle or to more securely fasten your bike during transport. Wheel chocks come in a variety of materials, sizes, and styles. There are a few things you’ll want to consider when purchasing a wheel chock.
First, what kind of motorcycle will you be storing? Wheel sizes and fender placement vary quite a bit between dirtbikes, sportbikes, and cruisers. Aside from your motorcycle’s specifics, where you plan to use the wheel chock will play a part in your buying decision too. If you’re planning to simply use a wheel chock in your garage, anti-corrosion coatings may not factor into your decision as much as it would if you were planning to mount one in your truck bed. You’ll also want to decide whether you want the stand bolted down or plan to use it in a variety of locations. To make your decision easier we’ve put together a list of some of the best wheel chocks on the market below.
