Motorcycle Wheel Chock Reviews
The following wheel chocks have been selected based on price / performance benefits, functionality, features and build quality.
Our testing method involves a combination of hands on use, a study of online customer reviews and feedback, plus an in depth analysis of how each product fares against others on the market.
The following selection brings together what we believe to be some of the best wheel chocks available in 2019.
1. EDITORS CHOICE: Condor – PSTK 6400 Motorcycle Wheel Chock
Our top pick motorcycle wheel chock for 2019 is this excellent offering from Condor. Much like the Condor Dolly, (reviewed here), the build quality is what sets this chock apart.
Although lightweight at only 32lbs the aluminium framed chock is able to support large bikes either as a floor stand or in transport.
This enables you to use the chock as a simple floor stand, or on your trailer with a simple flick of the release mechanism.
The chock is able to take wheels (front or rear) that are 14 – 22 inches in diameter. The tire width range is a versatile 80 – 220mm.
In short, most bike sizes can be safely secured in the upright position using the Condor 6400 wheel chock.
Motorcycle wheel chocks vary widely in price. Some models retail for just $50 while others such as those from Condor often come in at over $200.
The reason is quality and versatility. The 6400 has both in spades. The quick release kit enabling you to use the chock securely in both your garage space or trailer is excellent. The range of motorcycle sizes you can accommodate is also market leading.
In other words, by paying more for the chock in the first place you will have a device that you can hold on to for years.
Our number one pick for good reason.
2. BEST BUDGET: Extreme Max 5001.5010 Standard Motorcycle Wheel Chock
From the most expensive wheel chock in our top 7 to one of the cheapest.
But don’t let that fool you into thinking this is a cheaply manufactuered motorcycle chock. Far from it.
While the Extreme Max does not have the build quality or versatility of our top pick from Condor, this is still a very capable solution to your wheel chock needs.
The Amazon customer feedback speaks for itself in this regard.
Designed to secure bikes with wheels from 17-21 inches, this unit can accommodate a number of bike sizes.
Tire width can range between 3-5/32″ – 7-3/32″ wide so it is a good idea to check your motorcycle tire specifications before you buy.
Extra stability is provided by the front cross bar and boot. The high strength steel combined with the semi-gloss black powdercoat finish, not only looks good but will give you the peace of mind that your bike is in safe ‘chocks’
The unit also features a rear wheel cradle adjustment system meaning the wheel is held tight once in place.
It is hard to fault the Extreme Max motorcycle wheel chock at the current price point. Affordable, well built and able to accommodate a range of wheel sizes it really is a no brainer.
If you’re on a budget, this is the wheel chock to buy.
If however you have slightly deeper pockets and need greater versatility, the top pick from Condor is the one to go for.
3. Lock N Load – BK1000 Motorcycle Wheel Chock Combo Kit
The Lock n Load Wheel Chock Combo Kit is a product specifically designed for safe and secure trailering.
If you have your motorcycle strapped to your truck bed or trailer on a regular basis, this is exactly the type of chock kit you should be looking for.
The wheel chock automatically closes around the front wheel for stable transit. The kit also comes with front and rear tie-down ratchets in order to fasten the bike into position for the journey.
All of the component are from the BK range, with the kit including the following items in total:

If you are looking for a standalone chock designed specifically for trailering, the Lock n Load bundle does come highly recommended.
It does what it sets out to do very well indeed.
However, considering the top pick Condor quick release system will cater for both trailering and ground based needs, the versatility you gain should not be ignored.

The Dragway tools wheel chock is a great option for those with heavy motorcycles with wide tires.
Calling all sports bikes and road cruiser owners basically.
The 1500 lb load capacity is the real selling point here. If you do have a heavy bike it can be a risk settling on a chock that isn’t quite stable enough to accommodate your ride.
The last thing you want is to return to your bike to see it has fallen to the floor in the failing grip of a mangled wheel chock.
Those kind of experiences are highly unlikely when using the Dragway tools however.
The unit will fit most front wheel sizes between 16 and 21 inches in size. For further versatile fitting, the upper shoe has 2 adjustment holes.
The easy lock and load mechanism ensures that the wheel locks into the chock once in position, making one person loading very simple.
4 non slip rubber feet help ensure the chock doesn’t slide and damage ground surfaces. The high grade alloy steel will maintain integrity even with the heaviest loads.
The Dragway Tools wheel chock is a top quality option for those with larger bikes.
The high maximum load capacity of 1500lbs, coupled with the wider chock mouth for big wheels make this the best option in our review round up for cruisers and sports bikes.
Other style bike owners are better off looking elsewhere however.

What to look for when buying a motorcycle wheel chock
Step number one is to check the wheel diameter and tire width of your motorcycle.
Not all wheel chocks are made to the same dimensions so it is important that the one you buy will comfortably accommodate your bike wheels.
Generally speaking, most chocks will be suitable for wheel sizes between 17 and 21 inches.
If your bike size is either smaller or larger than this you will need to double check the specifications of the chock to ensure it will be compatible with your bike.
For instance, it is possible to buy chocks specifically designed for large cruisers and sports bikes because of the wider tire widths that these types of motorcycles have.
Conversely, a thin motorbike tire will not fit securely into a larger chock; the bike will likely tip over.
Purpose of the Chock
You should also consider where and how you plan to use the chock. Will it be a permanent fixed feature in your garage space or will you mainly be using it for trailering?
You might need an option that will conveniently cater for both ground and trailer use, meaning a quick release mounting system would be worthwhile.
You can also buy wheel chocks specific to trailering that come with additional ratchets and straps as well as a high load capacity to accommodate transportation.
Being aware of how and where you will mainly use the chock will help you buy the correct one to suit your needs.
Weight capacity is another important specification to be aware of when buying a wheel chock, especially if you have own a heavy motorcycle.
A small chock with a large and heavy bike will cause stability issues and certainly shouldn’t be used for trailering.
Match the specs of the chock to those of your motorcycle in order to maximise safety.
A wheel chock that has the ability to adjust around the size of your wheel is a feature worth looking out for. This will increase stability as the chock can essentially be customized to your specific needs.

Build quality is very often linked to price point. A more expensive wheel chock will hopefully be made from stronger materials and will have components built to a standard that will last you a long time.
Specs to look at here are high grade steel or alloy frames, and powder-coated finishing to prevent corrosion.
User reviews can also help here as you will be able to read first hand the experiences of other customers. Brand reputation is clearly linked to the build quality of their products too.
