Not really, because the actual pull strength depends on the thickness of the metal it is attached to. Which varies depending on the vehicle, as well as where you stick the mount. If you place the mount where a support member is directly under the magnet, you'll get a better "stick" than between support members.

If you press firmly on the sheet metal it will "give" or flex a little between supports. But it won't where the supports are.
