Advanced NextGen™ Tire Changer Technology

When NextGen was first introduced, our entire line of professional-grade t​ire changing equipment was re-engineered and thrown into the real world for testing. Choosing the right t​ire changer allows shop owners and service operators to easily move through daily routines. Whether clamping a delicate rim or fixing a run-flat, these tire changers are as gentle as they are powerful. That's all thanks to our patented RimGuard™ protection technology. NOTE: Internal and external rim clamping dimensions do not translate directly to rim or t​ire sizes as rim clamping points may vary by manufacturer.

Tire Changer Convenience

Ranger's extensive t​ire changer lineup is one of the most impressive equipment offerings in the industry, with models designed to suit nearly every budget, automotive specialty and t​ire size. Some of Ranger's exciting innovations include a helpful drop-center top mount arm that firmly holds the tire in place during rotation. You'll also find a pneumatic wheel restraint device to keep the mounted wheel locked into place. Power-assist upper bead rollers assist in setting and breaking beads. Ranger features one of the largest wheel-clamping ranges in the industry, as well as power-assist mounting towers for even more versatility. You may want to consider a swing-arm t​ire changer, which gives you more options for unseating stubborn beads. In fact, a Ranger swing-arm t​ire changer just might change the way you look at wheel service for your client's car or truck.

Internal baffles and seated stress flange gasket ensure venting and prevent any leaks.
