You can't, or shouldn't, lift the tires off the ground, but they will take some weight. I usually lift it 3/4" or so. You are correct, I think.. Friction against the washers or collars get enough pressure on them to resist turning. That's why no lub should be used.

Mine hold well. They aren't designed to lift but to stabilize. ( the method they attached was not the best, self tapping screws, not the best idea) The screw jack snugs right up when the weight is applied. I usually snug them up to approx 1 inch. That usually is enough. I like the blocks that were shown. Nice idea. That would even work better for me because my most recent adventure, the jacks sunk a bit in the sand. I had to re-snug. The jacks have a decal on them showing 8000lbs. My unit is the 29 hfs.
