Questions and Answers
What tire changer do I need?
no one ever uses anything but a rim grip tire machine with the
exception of salvage yards that are discarding the rims. The aluminum
alloy rims in today’s market require a rim grip machine as not to damage
the valuable rim.
What types of wheels can be changed on my machine?
can change most any tire wheel combination with the exception of PAX
systems and a PAX system requires a PAX machine. The amount of PAX tires
that a small shop would ever see is so few that it would not make sense
to invest in such an expensive machine. Generally speaking inside
clamping capabilities of up to 22” covers a wide range of wheels but if
you want to be able to accommodate the larger custom wheels in today’s
market you will need to go up to at least 26”.
What type of drive system do I need my tire changer to have?
two major types of drives are electric and Air. The most common and
easily repairable is electric. It is our suggestion that you go with an
electric drive for convenience and ease of repair. Electric drive
systems are also less expensive to purchase, operate, and repair.
How will my tire changer work with wheels (what clamping, bead system etc.)?
rim grip changer will generally clamp on the rim with the direct jaw
pressure generated by the dual pistons. (Note, always steer clear of a
single piston set up. They have an extremely high failure rate).
Different Teflon and plastic jaw set ups are available to ensure the
surface of the rim will be mark free. This is especially applicable with
high end rims.
Sizing for my tire changer (internal /external rim, tire diameter, tire width etc)
should size your changer according to the greatest possible common
range of rims you believe you will be working with. If you would only
change 1 set of 26” tires in a year it would probably not make sense to
spend the extra money. But on the other hand if you did spend the extra
money you would open your business up to another type of clientele
altogether. It is a business decision that only the individual business
person can reasonably make.
Swing Arm tire changers vs Tilt Tower tire changers.
is usually according to the size of the tires and wheels you are going
to be working on. The larger the tires and rims the greater the need for
a tilt back. EX if you are always doing racing slicks or monster
mudders a tilt back option would be your best choice. If you are always
doing passenger cars and light trucks a tilt back is probably not
PAX tires capability of my tire changer
capabilities are usually only done by a dealer and before you take on
this responsibility you should check to see if you are going to qualify
for PAX warranty reimbursement with the respective manufacturers. We do
not have any info on this at this time.
Accessories for Tire changers
of the most helpful accessories you can get with your changer is
motorcycle adapters and plastic rim protectors. Some options come with
the machines and some options do not. We can help with these available
Upgrades for my tire changer (helper arms etc)
tire changers are set up to accept the assist arm after purchase and
some are not. If you feel at some point that you would need an assist
arm you should be certain at the time of purchase that the machine you
are purchasing has the appropriate adapter to accept an assist arm at a
future date. Beware, some companies will tell you it does and it really
does not. You can see it very clearly by looking at the upper rear part
of the tower and/or the lower part of the body near the oiler. We will
be able to point out exactly where it is in a picture.
