I'm hijacking my own thread now... I was searching the net for different sources of rings and came across these from torque athletics:

These would be for my own use at home and for driving vacations. I really like the idea of the larger than life diameter of the two inchers... The downside is that they are hugely expensive and still steel. But they are "rated" at 3500 pounds. Does anyone have any experience at all with these?
I know I'm contradicting myself compared to my first post, but my ideas are evolving...
