•Ability to externally clamp wheels from 16 inches up to and including 28 inches without damage.
•Fits COATS 50X, 60X and 70X Series Rim Clamp Tire Changers with quick and easy installation and removal.

“These new COATS extension clamps will provide our large installed base of 50X and 70X Series and 9024E users with maximum application coverage,” said Andrew Vecci, group marketing manager for Hennessy Industries. “Our customers won’t need to purchase another tire changer to accommodate larger OEM and custom aftermarket wheel sizes; they can simply change the clamps based on their customer needs.”
