MOTORCYCLE TYRE CHANGERS

Motorcycle, Scooter and ATV Tyre Changers

Having close links to one of the world’s largest manufacturers of motorcycle tyre changers, we can cater for all applications from scooter and ATV through to superbikes, passenger cars and even light commercials! Our knowledge and unique capabilities have seen our tyre changers become the benchmark in the UK for safe and speedy tyre fitting and removal.

Although the tyre changing procedure on automatic machines of any manufacture is similar on wheels right up to heavy commercials, it is imperative that a machine intended for use with motorcycle wheels is built accordingly and offers more than just ease and speed. Balco / John Bean motorcycle tyre changers, whilst remaining extremely fast and simple to operate, offer a higher degree of protection for the wheel at all stages of the job.

A powerful 2500kg, specially designed bead breaker makes a cinch of breaking the bead on any tyre, and 'wheel friendly' rim clamps and fitting/demount tool ensure that there is no metal to metal contact during the whole fitting and removal process.

The RIGHT machine for you

There is often confusion and misinformation surrounding the differences between 'swing arm' and 'tilt arm' styles of tyre changer.

We offer both because, basically, user requirements also differ and we are able to provide the solution that suits you best.
