Atlas® TC221 Electric/Pneumatic Wheel Clamp Tire Changer
The Atlas® wheel clamp tire changers are designed to change the tires on both high priced alloy wheels and steel wheels without damaging the rim or the tire. The powerful bead breaker located on the side of the tire changer is designed to break even the most stubborn and rusted beads without damage to the rim. The turntable jaws (which can be covered with the standard protective plastic inserts) hold the rim securely without damaging the surface of the rim. These jaws can be moved to three different positions along the slides of the turntable to either increase or decrease the clamping range of the Atlas® 221.
The Atlas® TC 221 comes standard with an inflator hose and gauge.
There is some assembly required on the Atlas® TC 221 wheel clamp tire changer. Greg Smith Equipment stocks a complete inventory of parts for the equipment we sell.

Great Tire Changer! Great Price!
by Adam -
I have a small motorcycle shop and this tire changer can handle anything from car tires with fancy rims to the hardest low profile motorcycle tire I would highly recommend getting both the flip adapters and the standard motorcycle / atv adapters then you can change any tire out there including golf cars. Good quality machine!<br>The only complaint I have is the lease company really ripped me off you end up paying double over 3 years and you cant pay off early without a huge penalty, but oh well if u got bad credit and you need a tire machine what can u do.
perfect for all
by henry -
this tire machine with the atv/mc adaptors is a great tool for me as a one person show. anything from tough 22'' wheels to any atv/motorcycle tire/wheel, you will have no problems. the price is great. you will not be disappointed. and to purchase from such a good company as greg smith equipment. as a piece of mind I know they have all my parts in stock for me if I ever need anything. thanks again
ATLAS HOLDIN UP THE WORLD
by CHIEFMECHANIC -
I bought the TC221 in 2009 when I opened my American V-Twin shop and it has done the job of "Atlas". Other than a couple leaks in the hose it has performed flawlessly! I am still changing tires with my TC221 and expect many more years of service. I have changed 300mm tires without a scratch. I couldn't compete without it.
Best Tire Changer For The Money Period!

I purchased this machine in 2013, upgrading from a manual changer that I was using in my garage doing mainly motorcycle tires. I have changed more tires than I ever expected to do since then and have done very little to the machine. I don't do as many motorcycle tires anymore and mainly dismount/mount car/truck/atv tires.<br><br>Machine was purchased with the motorcycle adapters. If you buy this to do motorcycle tires buy the Motorcycle/ATV Flip Adapters instead of the ones just for motorcycles.<br><br>After the 2nd year I had a leaking fitting on one of the cylinders on the table, was cheap and easy to replace.<br><br>I added the manual bead roller arm to help with low profile tires, this reduced effort when mounting tires, use it more than expected. Found it much cheaper elsewhere. Highly recommended.<br><br>Overall if I had to buy another changer I wouldn't think twice about buying a different brand or model.
