Whats The Safest Way To Test Fit Rims With NO Tires?

Whats the safest way to test fit some rims that dont have any tires on them? Is it ok to lower on the ground, or place a block of wood underneath or something?

Please reply only if you know what your talking about.

Lay a piece of wood under the bead seats. They're supporting the weight of the car either way.

The bead seats are the edge of the rims? So like two equal height pieces of wood, one on the outer edge, one on the inner edge?

Thanks for your help.

Or just one across, perpendicular to the rim.
