Low-profile, run-flat, large diameter and heavy assemblies require skilled technicians when using conventional tire changers. 


Being equipped with the most advanced, technology on the market today allows the equipment, instead of the technician, to eliminate fitment challenges.

Did you know?

Bead massage reduces wheel vibrations

Bead massage reduces road force vibration by an average of seven pounds.   Some assemblies can see road force reductions well over 20 pounds!


To bead massage you need a dual bead roller center-clamp tire changer.  While still clamped, inflate the tire to OEM recommended pressure and refit the core.  One at a time, bring the bead roller against the sidewall of the tire at the rim edge and press approximately 1/4 inch into the tire.  Rotate two or three revolutions for each bead.


Bead massage takes less than a minute, but can significantly reduce road force, a leading cause of vibration.
