Tire Changers for Sale
Tire changers are one of the most fundamental pieces of equipment any shop or garage owner can have and there are many attributes that you may need to consider when shopping for one. Roller or shovel-type bead separators, integrated tire inflation systems, air surge pulse for faster inflation speed and improved bead seating, low speed drive systems with increased torque for servicing tough combinations, and last but not least, leverless mounting/demounting. These are just specifications that may come with the tire changer but you must first keep in mind the type of vehicle that will be serviced. All of these added bells and whistles may come at an elevated cost so it is important to remember what is best for your shop/garage and your wallet.

Different types of Tire Changers
A swing arm tire changer is great for auto repair shops that are just starting out and need something economical and at the same time durable and convenient. Usually, here at JMC Equipment, we recommend a swing arm tire changer if you are just starting out because the price range is a bit lower than its counter part the tilt back tire changer. However, due to the components of this item, you will have to adjust the size of the head assembly every time a different size tire comes into the shop. But if you constantly have the same tire size come in to the shop every time, then this is the perfect tire changer because you don't have to adjust and all you have to do is just put the tire on the turn table and let the machine (and the tech) do the magic.
One of the shops that we currently work with have 5 different tire changers, 4 of them are tilt back and one of them are swing arm tire changer. The 4 tilt backs are used for various size tires but the one swing arm tire changer is strictly used for 18 inch wheels. The techs at that shop have everything measure that way all they have to do is put the tire there and work their skills to take the tire out.
Like we said, the swing arm tire changer is perfect for shops that are just starting out and also if you have a professional service shop but you are doing the same tire size every time. If you have any more questions about the swing arm tire changer give us a call at 800-562-4791.
Now we come to the workhorse of the auto repair shop. The Tilt Back Tire Changer. This is a powerful tool that is used in high performance shops that have cars come in and out on an hourly basis. It is a fast, convenient and safe tire changer that you will be able to use for years to come. This tire changer will prevent you from damaging your customer's tire and will also do it in a fast and effortless way.
Most shops that have been around for a while, prefer to use this machine because the head is easy to adjust with the different size tires that come into your shop and once you are done, it will go back and away from the tire by only pressing a button given the tech more space to maneuver and take the tire out without damaging the tire.
So if you are looking for a good, convenient, durable and safe tire changer, the tilt back is the way to go. The price is a bit higher than most but it will pay for itself after only the first month of using, especially if you have the traffic for it.
These are the fancy tire changers that is on everyone's wish list. These are pretty much risk free and these are mostly used for higher end wheel that you really don't want to be scratching or damaging because the tire is worth more than the job that you are doing. These are a bit more complicated to use in a shop and takes a little more of a learning curve to learn. So our suggestion is have just one guy in your shop become the specialist for this tire changer. This will allow you to use the tire changer for a long time and also to keep your customer's tires safe and sound so they always keep coming back to you.
