Wheel chock 5.5 or 6.5?

I'm looking for a wheel chock like the Pingel for my trailer. I've been looking but am getting confusing information.

Anyone know do I want the 5.5" or the 6.5" for the front tire of a sportbike? I'm thinking a 6.5 but wantto make sure before spending the money.

Yes I know about Condor and Baxley but for what I need it for those won't work.

Also any recommendations on brand? I'm looking at pitposse and Pingel and one other brand I think pit stop?

Thanks


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

Condor, STS, Pit Bull or Baxley are all safer solutions for your bike, and your rotors.

For front tie down on Pingel, 5.5, for rear 6.5,

Thanks Wink


Yea I already have 2 Condors. This will be for the 3rd bike which I don't see me hauling all to often and plus the Pingel will be easier to use.

I ended up buying this one which are supposed to be better and less worry about the rotors.
