I have X-Chocks and have been very pleased.

I chose the RotoChoks because they're customized to the wheel spacing. I have about an inch and a quarter between my wheels and needed something that would definitely fit. The RotoChoks fit that bill.

The chock part itself is a hard rubber. I can't imagine it's going to cut into the tires. The X-Chocks that I've seen are metal and probably aren't a problem (since lots of people use them).

I've only ever used RotoChoks so I can't directly compare them to the X-Chocks.

A bonus- I like supporting the little guy. (Pretty neat to see that they have a real website finally!)
X2. And I throw the camco yellow under the wheels for safety.

That secure feeling

We bought X-Chocks for the following reasons: they fit the small space between the tires, they won't cut the tires, they're very easily installed/removed. The rig doesn't move - period. Now, the caveat is, not to over tighten them or you may break a belt.

I made my own with 4X4 pieces, threaded rod and stainless steel nuts. They work great. Links to plans I used:

I've not experienced much loosening of them (and certainly never falling out).
Been using Bal Chocks for 7 yrs now and have never had one loosen due to the cooling of the tires and they do lock the wheels. Have forgotten them once or twice and couldn't move the trailer.

I've got the X-chocks and use them along with my yellow camco chocks. Works quite well.

I use the x- chocks. Bought a pair for $5 at a yard sale. Asked the lady twice about the price. Paid her and immediately put them in the truck! Love them. No slippage, but I do walk around a few hours after settling in to check them and that's it.

We've been very happy with our x chicks. They do a good job at reducing the rocking when walking around in the trailer.

I have the yellow Camco Wheel Stops. They fit between the wheels and clamp in securely. They are plastic/rubber with metal screw bolts and they are very solid. They are to stop vehicle motion. I highly recommend them. I also still have my wheel chocks from my popup, so I am pretty sure I'm good there as well.
