    I think the ramps are about 20 odd degrees.

    The maths is

    r=d/b1000
    d=distance travelled up the ramp
    b=wheel base

    At tuff trucks they add wheel track to the formula, but I dont know how or where

    Are you going to do a bit of Trig (Cosine Rule) using 20 Deg as angle?
    Be mindful of your liability using the ramp and that it is deemed to be safe & suitable for its intended use. To cover yourself get a certified ramp or get your design and build certified. I am not an engineer.
