Swing Arm Tire Changer
The swing arm tire changers usually are the most cost-effective changer you will find and can be considered “semi-automatic”. The reason being is that you will have to lock the arm into place by tightening it manually and making it fit perfectly with the size of the wheel that you will be changing. However, it does have a quick change tool with infinite tool head positioning that you will be able to adjust to fit nearly any tires.
Most swing arm tire changers are able to fit bigger tires (Up to 50 inches in diameter) however, the tech would have to adjust it every time to fit the rim correctly otherwise you can damage the tire. This type of changer does come in handy when the shop is constantly doing the same size tires. If they are, the tool head does not have to be repositioned every time and an experienced tech will be able to change plenty of tires in a short amount of time. We recommend using this tire changer if you are starting a shop and also if you are going to use it for a particular tire size that way you don’t have to continue changing the tool head every time. Here at JMC we carry a wide array of swing arm tire changers at the most competitive prices.
