Coats RC-55 Rim Clamp Tire Changer


Coats® RC-55 Rim Clamp Tire Changer with RC Robo-Arm®, Air or Electric Drive Motor

The Coats® RC Series – Built upon the standards of the legendary Coats Rim Clamp® tire changers.
Updated for today’s high-speed, general service repair shop, the RC Series will execute day after day, which your shop not only demands, but also deserves. With proven performance through decades of testing, the RC Series Rim Clamp tire changers are built from strong, reliable components that offer more power and longevity for everyday use.
The RC Series will feature two models, the RC-55 and the RC-45


RC Robo-Arm® (RC-55 Model Only)
Effortlessly keeps the top bead in the drop center during mounting, allowing technicians to efficiently change difficult wheel applications, such as low-profile wheels and run-flat tires, commonly found on many OE vehicles.

Built-in Bead Sealing Jets
Quickly seal beads while tabletop inflation provides a faster workflow.

High Torque, X-Shaped Turntable
Designed for rigid perimeter support of the wheel. Pedal controls make tire mounting and dismounting easier for technicians, especially when working in high volumes.

Manual Swing Arm

Easily adjusted so that the Coats Duckhead® Mount/Demount Tool is properly fitted to the tire rim. This will reduce the risk of damage when mounting and demounting the tire.

Conveniently Placed Foot Pedals

Provide precise control over every step of the changing process. The pedals are ideally placed for fluid technician movements while mounting and demounting tires.

Inflation Gauge

Easily and accurately inflate from 0 to 60 PSI. With a pressure limiter and easy-to-read gauge, the built-in tire inflation system ensures technician safety and prevents TPMS related comebacks.

Wheel Protection

Available options include bead loosener socks, clamp booties and lift tool protection to prevent metal-to-metal contact that causes scratching or marring.
