Hold on here, I didn't say to put a jack stand on top of a wheel, is that what you are saying because that is a HUGE no-no!

What I described was simply sliding the wheel and tire under the car AFTER it's on the stands as a back up in case the car falls it falls on the wheel that is laying under the car hopefully saving you from a broken leg or arm.

In no way would I ever suggest putting a wheel down and then putting a jackstand into the wheel or something like that. That would be EXTREMELY dangerous.
