It moved so fast on the smaller tires I could not tell what it was doing. Bet it is not cheap.

I've not researched it yet, but I'd bet you are right.  Probably big $$!

 

 

Just googled it.  About $550 up to $900+, I see.  :o

I saw that also.  If you were in the tire business it might pay for itself.  

 

My cousin owns a tire business near me.  I sent him the video.  He's always buying the latest new-fangled gadgets.  Maybe he'll get one and then I can borrow it! :P

 

I showed him a video of a hydraulic flaring tool once and he ordered it the next day. It's pretty nice! :)

I don't see $700+ in that tool. I works great but  what a bone head. If he had used an impact socket instead of a chrome one the gun wouldn't have had to work as hard and the expensive tire tool wouldn't get beat up as quick.

Nice but kind of limited. The beads are already broken and that thing isn't going to help mount the new tire.

that's not to say I wouldn't want one in my garage ;-)

Wonder if an aluminum rim will hold up to that.

I would think it would damage an aluminum wheel or a nice painted wheel.  This would be a great tool for tire guys that do service calls.   I've seen those guys out on the road or hot parking lots changing all 10 tires on a truck.  The steer tires they will usually change with the wheels mounted on the truck.  

Here's a bead breaker made by the same company.

Yeah, I thought of that also.  It's quite an expensive tool for dismounting only.
