Ever since Gil Coats and Jack Hennessy partnered to develop and launch the first Iron Tireman more than 50 years ago, COATS® has been shaping the automatic tire changer industry and setting standards for quality, durability and ease of use.
Keeping pace with technology and providing practical solutions for tire service needs is the COATS® hallmark. When alloy wheels gained popularity, COATS® introduced the first American-made Rim Clamp® tire changers, which continue to set benchmarks for quality and performance.
Today we offer tire-changing equipment to handle the toughest low-profile and run-flat tires, delicate alloy wheels, and even large OTR and agricultural tires. Features such as our Robo-Arm® helper device, leverless mount/demount systems, and ergonomic wheel lifts allow you to handle almost any application with ease. With every change in tire and wheel technology, COATS® is there – offering the right technology, at the right price, supported by a factory-trained, nationwide service network.
