Judging by the whitetrash yards I see around my area, I would assume until the car rots on top of them... :D
however if the cement blocks are all cracked about to crumble that is different

I use four 14" Ranger wheels under all fours. I just jack up one at a time and stick a wheel under it. The face on the ranger wheels is just perfect, not jagged enough to ruin the tread and not to flat for the car to roll off. I myself would trust the whole cinderblock deal. Goodluck :nono:

I would say yea prolly but for sure put a piece of 2x8 on top cause the if the load is not distributed evenly across the block say a piece of subframe focus all the force on one spot on the block like the skinny wall it can crack and crumble. Also never use a block on its side it has no strength in that direction only up and down like your are building a wall it it with a good piece of 2x8 to evenly spread the load.
