Sounds like planning for an activity instead of as traditionally used.
Creepers: Wheel size? what works on a leveled and finished concrete floor might not function on asphalt driveways.
Spare tires: rim size? Junk tires from a scrap yard?
Floor jacks and stands: weight capacity? height range?
Bean bags: Chair size, or pin-cushion size? for tossing? By what age/hand size/strength group?


trying to tie these all together and imagination running wild:
Helmets? Knee pads and elbow pads? gloves? chin and mouth guards?

The spare tires and bean bags go together. It's for a bean bag toss for kids.

The creepers - the kind you sit on versus the kind you lay down on your back?

The floor jacks and jack stands are for potential tire mounting races.

LOL @ both of you...

Spare tires, any size is fine (just not monster truck tires).
Creepers -was thinking beat up ones, that people won't mind getting torn up a bit, or donations of new one's is fine. Also was thinking the lay down kind. (helmets, knee and elbow pads, gloves, and mouth guards might be necessary) -this is for a "derby" or "rally" type event
Jacks & stands can be standard for our cars (NOT widowmakers!), 2 ton guys are more than enough.

The list doesn't look very full yet. I could bring (to loan) a floor jack (or 2), a creeper, and/or steel ramps. Let me know which you still need or would like to borrow.

See ya Friday

I have at least 1 set of jack stands, floor jack, powered speakers and a set of tire chains I can bring. Might be able to get my neighbor's bullhorn.

"Lug Wrenches": Factory issue? I have two (17 mm) I can bring and leave behind. Spare Tires: These can be temporarily liberated from the trunks of attendees. I don't see the need to bring dedicated spare spares for the fest.
Jacks: I have multiple widowmaker factory jacks. I hope that you don't want to use those.

Thanks, Jon. Safe Travels!
