MID RISE LIFT or KWIKLIFT??
If the 'mid-rise lift' is that one with the two rubber topped flat
platforms that hydraulically come up under the car, that will work a
lot better for tire and brake work. But it would still be a pain
getting to the middle of the car - grease the U-joints, no way.
With the Kwiklift ramps, even if you jack up the wheel to work on
brakes you still have the ramp in the way. And with ramps you always
have the choice of too (SIC) work heights - too low, or too high.
Myself, if I do anything like this I'm looking at a good old
fashioned two-post lift. It would be a bunch of work to raise the
roof two feet on the garage, but by no means impossible.
Or if you have a side yard you can pour a slab and install the lift
outside, put a small carport over it to keep the worst of the weather off.
