Jacking two side wheels at once?

To swap out wheels for HPDEs or winter, I have historically used the jacking points and lifted each corner independently to change the wheels one at a time. I don't particularly like the twisting action this does to the frame.

Rather than using the front/rear jack points, could you put the jack on the side of the car, in the center, and jack up the entire side of the car to lift both wheels on that side?

Alternatively, I guess you could jack up the front, put a jack stand under the side and then jack the back.

I know there are jack points in the back (some use the rear diff, others a different point) and similar things in the front but I can't reach them effectively.

Any thoughts? Thanks!!
