Default Jackstands and a slanted driveway..

I need to take my rims off but my driveway is at a slant and not flat. Now, I generally would never jack my car up on a slanted driveway but kind of assed out. Anyways, common sense says no way but I also think since I won't be under the car that it should be okay. Planning to do the one end at a time, that being the higher elevated side first. Take rims off for like an hour or 2. Put them back on, turn car around and repeat. I know to ebrake and put blocks behind wheels and all that good stuff. What do you guys think? Think it'll be okay?

is the driveway the only place on the planet that you can do this? if you move the car is it going to blow up? another driveway or a parking lot would be a better option.

How slanted? I've done it in my driveway that isn't flat, but it's not very slanted.

My driveway is slanted as hell and I work on my truck all the time. A GOOD set of wheel chocks, but ive never had to take off more than two wheels at a time.

Yes it is the only place on the planet I can do this, right now. My car won't blow up if I move it. Anyways, only other driveway is my cousins and his slants worse. Streets around my area are mostly at inclines besides main roads. I will not go to some random parking lot and leave my car on jackstands for a few hours at a time. I'm not ghetto like you.

The driveway is probably like.. 20 degrees slant at most. I will be doing 2 at a time, fronts then rears.

terrible idea. do it right the first time. nothing better than just trying to switch your tires on a slanted driveway and a jack stand fails smashing you...
