Does this Jack work for our cars

Hey quick question. Is a Jack like this one: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc..._&sortType=low work well enough to change a tire (for instance switching from snows back to summer)?

Thanks!

Google Omega 29023. That's a good jack for the E90.

If you're looking for something that will lift the car at the plastic jack points, this will not work without some kind of adapter. I have something like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Torin-T815005L...=pd_sbs_misc_2

That pad on the top I found is soft enough to lift at the plastic pads without damaging them.

I bought a "low profile" jack for my 330xi and I'm sitting 1.6" than sport package cars.

I can't get under the front jack point without driving up on wood planks first.
