Common is it really that dangerous if used correctly? I'm not getting under the car or anything - its just a simple wheel change. I used a similar jack to change wheels on my previous car a couple of times and no issues.
Taking the following steps and you cant go wrong
-unscrew wheel nuts before raising the car
-tighten wheel nuts once car back on the ground
-dont move the car around
-secure hand break and other wheels
The car will only be raised for around 1-2 mins each wheel. Many people use these jacks but you only ever hear the bad experiences were someone has decided to crawl under the car!
