Recommendations for low profile ramps?

Wanted to change my oil over the weekend so I went to my local auto parts store and bought some rhino 8000's. Worked well enough until I made it about halfway up when my wife suddenly yelled for me to stop. I got out and looked ... the ramps were buckling under the weight and both the front and back of the ramps were curved up off the ground.

Has anybody found a more sturdy, maybe metal, set of ramps that are low profile enough to clear the bottom plastic things in front the tires?

I used rhino ramps 12,000 lb. capacity ramps. They worked extremely well and had no buckling as you mentioned. That makes me nervous though, as our cars are nowhere near 8,000lbs.
