  • Patent number: 10661600
    Abstract: Disclosed is a vehicle support device comprising a polygonal surface which may be affixed to a front edge of an at least one circumferential plate (110) or to a midline of an at least one circumferential plate (110). The polygonal surface (105) may be a pentagon polygon having five sides, a hexagon polygon having six sides, an octagon polygon having eight sides, or any polygonal shape. The polygonal front surface may have an at least one asymmetrical side. The polygonal front surface (105) may have a plurality of lug bolt supports (120), which may have five lug bolt supports (120), seven lug bolt supports (120), eight lug bolt supports (120), or twelve lug bolt supports (120). The vehicle support device may have an axle support centerline (125), a vehicle support device centerline (130), and an non-zero centerline offset (135) between the axle support centerline (125) and the vehicle support centerline (130) to provide for offset alignment of the vehicle support device in a vehicle wheel well.
