Hi, Searching the archives I have not found any recent conversations concerning this subject. My current and somewhat aged tie down straps are just a ratchet, strap, and 2 hooks. I have successfully used these for transporting my 69 SII E-Type and 93 Miata on my flatbed trailer but feel it’s time to replace them.
Searching Amazon there are tie downs that fit over the tire and strap forward and to the rear of the trailer. Amazon also sells tie downs that fit over the tire and are secured in a downward position to the side of the trailer.
On an older JL thread it was mentioned the over the tire tie downs are best and the front to back is the safer method. Has anyone experienced clearance issue with the forward straps rubbing against the bonnet?
I’m not stuck on purchasing these via Amazon so please share any US market retail stores that sell quality tie downs. I am however hoping to buy a set that can used on either vehicle.
