X chocks for 246rks

Does anyone use x chock s on a freedom express wide track axel? I measure tire spacing at 16" and the xl x chock only extends to 1 7" . Afraid its not enough tension.

X-Chocks are available in 2 versions. They make a wide body that fits trailers where the tires are spaced wider.....

Thanks, I found the extended version but it's only 1 inch wider than my wheel spacing wasn't sure that would do it.

I use the extended x-chocks with my 246rks. No issues and they do a pretty good job stabilizing the trailer along with the scissor jacks on the 4 corners of the trailer. I have more than enough left over to create the needed tension. My trailer is a 2014 so maybe newer ones are spaced farther apart?

When I use them, I either wait for the tires to cool before I install or I go out later and tighten them. I have to tighten my scissor jacks after a day or two as well.

I use the extended x chocks on my FE 310BHDS LE and they work great.
