Big wheels or small, the Coats® APX80 A/E Rim Clamp® Tire Changer handles them all.

If you want a workhorse tire changer, but still need to handle the larger tires that come in the door, this is the ideal step-up machine. Plus, if your big tire business continues to grow, you can easily upgrade with power helper options to expand your capabilities even further.

The Coats® APX80 is a premium unit designed to give you steady day-to-day performance with the flexibility to go back and forth between standard and bigger tires with ease. Built-in power helpers allow you to change even difficult run flats and low-profiles with minimal effort and maximum efficiency. So whether you’re dealing with standard steel wheels or expensive custom alloys, you can tackle them both with confidence.

Give yourself the power of flexibility with the Coats® APX80. With its large clamping capacity—up to 30” externally—and operator-friendly controls to minimize training, you’ll be on the road to increased efficiency and profitability right out of the box.

Protecting Expensive Wheels

The Coats® APX80 was designed from the ground up to give peace of mind for even the most challenging jobs. The 3-position bead loosener and patented Duckhead® Roller prevents metal-to-metal contact that causes scratching or marring.

Increasing Shop Productivity 

With multiple power helpers, the Coats® APX80 helps you work more efficiently and because the APX80 has evolved from the most popular family of tire changers in the United States, it is intuitive and easy to operate. Technicians can focus on the customer rather than complex training.

Maximizing Your Investment

We know tires and wheels will continue to change. Coats® engineered the APX80 so that it can adapt and be enhanced for the future. You can add even more capability with these special accessories.
