I live just outside of Detroit MI, and I do not drive my 335IS in the Winter. I have a two car garage and usually just park it as close to the wall as possible.

This year I wanted to be able to remove the wheels and still get it close to the wall, problem is I am not smart enough to figure out how. My jack handle is probably 4' long, but I can jack at a slight angle and with about two feet or room, but it's a PITA.
I am betting there are some people around here that have great solutions to a simple problem.

So let's here your solutions to make this happen?

They make car wheel dollies so you can 'slide' the car into a tight spot but you still need wheels on the car.

I guess I don't see why you need to remove the wheels? Are you worried about flat spots or something?

Just buy some crap rims and tires wheels?

Yeah Wheels dollies won't work for obvious reasons.

I want to remove the wheels for a few reason, I like to clean and ceramic coat them, I like to work on the car throughout the winter and often need the wheels off.
Also I want to store them in my basement.
Cheap wheels won't work if I need to remove them and can't....

Throw it up on jack stands then?

Taking a rim off is pretty damn quick with or without an impact. Why not get 4 beater rims and throw those on dollies. Roll it away and roll it out when you want to work on the car? Then jack, insert jack stand, remove wheel(s)?

I see what you are saying, keep it on shit wheels on the dollies, then if I need to get to suspension I can still move it and then put it on stands.
That could work, only down side I see is keeping 4 shit wheels around without the wife asking why I have so much car shit :)

the idea of getting four more wheels is the best for me.
we imagine that you find or manufacture four carts .... what do you do with them when you no longer need them? it will take up a lot more space and your wife will not be happy ;)

More effectively than a chassis dolly?
Dude that’s exactly what you want.
jack car up
Remove wheels
Sit car on dolly
Move it anywhere you like
