Has anyone used a scissors jack to replace a flat tire?

With the tire (19") inflated there is only about 5.25 inches clearance. In order to provide stability I was planning on attaching the puck to the jack. The puck is almost 2" and the collapsed jack is almost 4". Not enough room even without the flat tire. I am considering one of those inflatable bag jacks.

You could carry a piece of wood to drive onto, giving a little more room when placing your scissor jack. The Porsche scissor jacks alot of us use, fold real tight, so don't need alot of room. They also have a nub, so you don't need a puck.
