Our Total Performance Package includes three automotive and light truck cones covering hub sizes 2.00 – 2.75, 2.75 – 4.00 and 4.00 – 6.00.

You no longer need those tire irons and levers, so put them away!

The Ranger RV1 Wheel Guardian is a durable day-to-day performer with the flexibility to service a wide variety of wheels, including OEM configurations, run-flats and exotic performance wheels, with ease. The full menu of time-saving features includes automatically operated bead breaker rollers that offer controlled penetration and loads of power; a power-assist traveling drop-center arm; and a power-drop assist roller that allows you to change virtually anything, even difficult run-flats and low-profile tires, with minimal effort and maximum efficiency. Whether you’re dealing with standard steel wheels or expensive custom alloys, you can tackle any job with total confidence in your tire changer.
Wide Service Range – The Ranger RV1 Wheel Guardian tire machine provides an expanded service range on 13” – 30” rim diameters that are up to 15” wide, giving you the ability to work efficiently on a variety of wheel styles and sizes.
RimGuard™ Technology – Ranger RimGuard™ Technology means expensive wheels are handled with greater care, resulting in less damage and increased work efficiency. A single, automatically operated tool head mounts and demounts tires without touching the wheel or requiring levers of any kind. The RV1 comes standard with hardened steel tool head and Nylon inserts.
