      The Tusk Portable Tire Changer is a great, easy way to change tires in the shop or at the track. This tire changer will work with all rim sizes 14" and bigger; dirt or street tires. One of the nicest features about this tire changer is the bead breaker; it has several different adjustments for different size tires to ensure good leverage to pop the bead. The changer also has an axle stud that securely holds the wheel in place on top of the rubber coated rim stabilizer that prevents scratching the spokes. Another great feature is the gap in the ring and the lower tab below; this is used to pry on the rim lock to make removal simple. With its compact design, it is perfect for the shop, trailer, or even trackside.
    • The stand makes changing motorcycle tires an easy job.
    • Works great with all motorcycle wheels 14" and bigger.
    • Compact and light weight design for easy transportation.
    • Equipped bead breaker to pop the bead on tires.
    • Included sturdy axle stud and rubber coated ring hold the wheel tight.
    • Handy rim lock gap to pry on when you get a stubborn rim lock.
    • Durable steel construction with black powder-coating.

    Works well
    for heavier tires or mousse it is necessary to mount it to a solid surface, floor, table whatever with extra leverage needed for these types of installs

    So far I have only used it on off road tires so breaking the tire loose from the rim wasn't a problem, but it help to keep the tire in position and using the bead breaker to push the bead to the center of the rim makes it easier to get the bead off on the other side.

    The stand is helping me fight tire changes less
    This tire changing stand is very sturdy, seems will made, and has a good rubber coating on the top ring. The rubber coating seems tough and like it will last. This stand helped make tire repair and changing a lot easier. But you still need to use good techniques and have some other good tools, so watch some videos. It is small enough to throw in my truck and bring with me to the trail head.

    Combine this with the Tusk Tire Balencer and Trueing Stand and save lots of money changing tires yourself.

    Unbeatable for the money
    No it's not a Moose or Robocanda. But for $75 bucks, this thing i is a complete game changer. I can uninstall a front Bib/Tire (no rim lock) in almost 3 minutes flat, and uninstall in about 2 minutes. For rear tire (with rim lock), it's a tad longer to install. I use it for tubeliss and tubes alike. The beauty with tube installations is that when you go to pull that last 8 - 10" of bead over the rim, you no longer have to worry about "Pinching a tube". This tire changer will help you "push" the bead right over the rim. Mind you there is a small learning curve as there's technique involved. But if I can do it, anyone can. HIGHLY recommend for anyone who is on a budget and is sick and tire of needing 6, 7, + spoons to install a bib or tired of pinching tubes during the last section of tire on an install. FYI - I mounted this on a small heavy duty 2' x 2' table. It makes it rock solid for stability, and the tire changer has (4) pre-drilled holes. About $4.00 in nuts/bolts from the hardware store.

    Why didn't i have this before
    Makes tire changing a breeze compared to the old way of fighting the tire and rim on the ground. If you mount it to a piece of plywood it makes it even easier.

    Will this work for dual rotar wheels?
    Ryan J on Dec 17, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: There is 5 3/4 inches from center post to little ring welded to the rim to act as a stop to hold a spoke when you clamp down a rim.If you were to grind this non- essential part off you would have 7 inches (14'' diameter) clearance. I checked the dual disc 19'' front wheel of my KTM and it was a little under the 7 inches, so a dual disc wheel may fit. I think this tool is geared more toward dirtbike tires. The center post was too large for front wheels of both generations of KLR 650.
    Good day, just a quick question, I am wondering what the dimension are for the product and/or packaging it comes in? I need to know because I want to fly it with me abroad.
    Andre B on Sep 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: you can take the gold bar off with a wrench.however the width is close to 2 feet with it off. maybe a little over. thank you for your question.
    Will this device work for the TUbliss tire system?
    JIM P on Aug 18, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, I use it with tubliss. I clamp it to one of those partlcle board/laminate folding leg tables that I carry in my trailer. The biggest thing changing tires with tubliss, IMO is just making sure you don't pinch the red liner with a tire iron.
    I use the stand as somthing stable to set the wheel on, use the bead breaker to break the bead but also when installing a tire I use the bead breaker to push the last bit of the bead over the rim. It is much easier than reefing on it with tire irons, and with tubliss I've got the whole thing soaped up with the soapy water solution so it ends up being much easier on your knuckles using the bead breaker to push the last part of the bead over instead of prying with tire irons. You still have to do the initial part of putting the tire around the rim off of the stand using the tubliss metal piece made for sliding the wheel into the tire, but after that it goes on the stand.
    Will this properly change both tires of my 2018 Yamaha xt250?
    RUEL P on May 9, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I have used this tool to change front and rear tires on my 2014 Yamaha WR250R 21"F /18"R numerous times.
    It does a great job of breaking the bead and pushing it down into the center groove.
    I use a liberal amount of lube to aid in the removal and installation of tires / tubes.
    What size is the center axle post? Between my bikes and the kids, I have axles sizes 12, 15, 17, 25, and 30mm!
    Brian E on Jul 9, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Axle stud threaded ends are 0.602-in (15.2-mm) as measured with an HF 6-in caliper. Hole in changer is a little larger at 0.636-in. I am guessing that the axle stud is 5/8-11 coarse thread. Changer works really well; however the axle stud is not threaded from end to end; large gap in the middle. I had to make a ~3-in long spacer to accommodate my 12RT rear wheel. I’ve thought about replacing the axle stud with a 5/8-11 x 12” all thread rod next time I use it for my application. As for your 12-mm (OEM might be tight for 15-mm) application, you could try a 1/2-13 and/or 3/8-16 all thread rod with corresponding sized nuts and fender washers.
    will this work for a DR650 front and rear wheel?
    Billy N on Jun 24, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. I’ve used multiple times for tire changes and to hold the wheel for sprocket changes. Great tool, works great. I bolted it to a Stanley fold down portable workbench.
    What is the little circle piece welded onto the top ring coated in rubber for? In hits on the spokes as I'm trying to rotate the tire on the stand.
    Cody G on Jul 22, 2019
    BEST ANSWER: It’s purpose is a tire iron holder.
    yes it always got in my way so I took a grinder and cut it off and smoothed out the edges . Now the wheel will rotate no problem.
    Also this might help as well,
    I had many problems trying to get the stand to stay put while removing the tire , so I bolted the stand to a 4’ by 4’ piece of plywood.
    Now it works great
    What is the circular piece welded to the top round rail for? Tusk mentions nothing about it and I see where others just cut or grind it off.
    SCOTT J on Feb 18, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Been a minute since I got this tool so I'm unsure what "circular piece" you are referring too??... I did grind off a small welded on tab from this rail to allow it to be used on rims with very large brake rotor's (GS 800 front wheel). This is a very handy item, I use it to keep the bead pushed down into the rim when mounting as well.
    I need a portable tire changer that will handle motorcycle tires and UTV tires. Will this work for UTV tires?
    Marc F on Mar 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I bought one of these tire changers thinking I'd change tires on my BMW R1200GS. No way. I ruined it, first try. It's a pretty lightweight tool designed for dirt bikes, not hulking ADV monsters. It might work on UTV tires, but the wheel must be at least 14 inches, and the bead breaker lever might need to be modified. It's questionable. Sorry I can't be more definite.
    Can i purchase the bead breaker without the stand??
    MICHAEL M on Jun 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we do not sell just the breaker alone.
