Rimless Tank on 2x4s?

Hi All, Im very new to the aquarium hobby and needed a bit of help.
I saw a diy aquarium rack set up online made of 2x4s and 8x8x16 cinderblocks. I have a 36x16x16 Rimless tank made of glass and wanted to know if it being rimless would cause it to crack on the rack.

I'd glue and screw a piece of plywood dows for the mat to rest. If those 2x4 bow and create a pressure point that tank could fail.
