Greg Smith has sold automotive wheel service equipment for over 40 years.
His company has distributed and installed hundreds of wheel service
machines manufactured by HUNTER ®, CORGHI ®,

Greg Smith Equipment believes that the wheel service products made by
Atlas are designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as

The salesmen for the "BIG NAME BRANDS" try to intimidate many prospective
wheel service equipment customers into believing that products from ASIA are
inferior. Most of the “BIG BRAND NAMES” have the majority of their parts made
in ASIA.

Get the facts about Atlas wheel service products before you spend two to three
times more than you need to on "BIG NAME BRANDS"!

The Atlas TC 289 wheel clamp tire changer is the perfect wheel clamp tire
changer for most general automotive service departments and medium sized
tire stores. This tire changer is perfect for changing the tires on large SUV and
one ton trucks. The Atlas TC289 can be fitted with either the LH assist arm or
the Atlas DAA arm assembly

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 ADUSTABLE 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 TC289 wheel clamp tire changer.

The Atlas TC 289 wheel clamp tire changer comes standard with the powerful bead blast system and inflator hose adapter and pressure gauge.

Bead Blaster:
The Atlas TC 289 wheel clamp tire changer is equipped with the revolutionary Atlas bead blast inflation system. The Bead Blaster design found on most of our Atlas tire changers provides an enormous amount of air pressure and volume (blasting air through the air holes positioned near the movable turntable jaws) to seat the beads on most stiff sidewall tires. This tremendous volume of air, directed to the inside cavity of the tire, forces both tire sidewalls to press solidly against the wheel so that the tire will “hold air”.

Atlas wheel clamp tire changers offer this exclusive bead blast design on most of their tire changers. This innovative large volume Bead Blaster design allows the operator to seat the beads and easily inflate even the most stubborn of stiff sidewall tires.

The large column air tank reservoir holds more compressed air than most competitive tire changers. The vertical column air tank is connected to a unique valve system which utilizes an oversized hose system to deliver a huge amount of air pressure and volume in a short amount of time.

One pedal allows the operator to seat the bead and inflate the tire to the factory recommend pressure in a short amount of time.

The use of Atlas Motorcycle/ATV Flip Adapters prevents the use of the air bead blast feature on this tire changer. The adapters are slid over the standard wheel clamp jaws on the tire changer table and will block the holes through which the bead blast shoots the jets of air. This means that you will not be able to use the Bead Blaster to help you reseat the bead of a tire when you are using either of these adapter sets.

If you need a bead blaster to help seat the beads on a stubborn sidewall tire (that is clamped to the turntable with the slide on adapters), then you may want to consider the Atlas HBBU, hand held bead blaster, as an optional piece of equipment for your Atlas 289 wheel clamp tire changer.

The Atlas TC 289 is manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified plant that produces tire changing equipment for export to many countries. The Atlas name means high quality and great prices. Greg Smith Equipment continues to offer the best products at the best prices.

When shopping for tire changers and wheel balancers; ask the competition to show you pictures and descriptions of what is “under the hood” of their machines. Tire Changers and wheel balancers may appear to be the same on the outside, but as in most instances: It’s what’s inside that counts!

Greg Smith Equipment has sold over 5,000 of the Atlas tire changers in the past several years. The Atlas name has always been a trusted name in the automotive service Industry and you can depend on the Atlas brand for many years to come.

Clamping Range:
The Atlas TC 289 wheel clamp tire changer has adjustable turntable jaws that can be positioned to clamp from 10” to 26” in the external or internal locking configuration. Other slide-on adapters are available to either increase or decrease the jaw clamping range.

There is some assembly required on the Atlas TC 289 wheel clamp tire changer. Greg Smith Equipment stocks a complete line of parts for all the Atlas wheel clamp tire changers.

Tire Changer Comparison

Atlas wheel clamp tire changers and computer wheel balancers are built to the same exacting standards as those tire changers and wheel balancers sold by SNAP-ON ®, HUNTER ®, ACCU TURN ®, HOFMANN ® and CORGHI ®. Many "Big Name Manufacturers" have EXCLUSIVE manufacturing agreements with several different ITALIAN and CHINESE manufacturers. ITALIAN manufacturers are a large source for many assembled tire changers and wheel balancers that are sold by the "Big Name Manufacturers" in the USA. Many tire changers and wheel balancer are either private branded for the "Big Name Manufacturers"; or the Italian or Chinese made component parts are imported to North America for the final assembly of the products.

Many of the "Big Name Manufacturers" are now importing tire changers and wheel balancers (either entire machines or component parts) from China. That is exactly what Greg Smith Equipment has been doing for many years with one HUGE exception; we pass the enormous savings to the customers.

ATLAS wheel service equipment is manufactured in one of the most prestigious wheel service manufacturing facility located in China. Most other ASIAN tire changer and wheel balancer "manufacturers" are not in the manufacturing business. These ASIAN "factories" are really just small assembly companies that purchase parts from dozens of small "job shops" and assemble these wheel clamp tire changer and wheel balancer parts to produce the finished product.

ATLAS is manufactured in an ISO 9001 compliant factory that enjoys CE certification.

There are dozens of ASIAN tire changer and wheel balancer assembly companies that market their product under several different brand names. These ASIAN assembly facilities sell their products to a variety of small distributors all over the world. Although many tire changers and wheel balancers appear (from the outside) to be similar as those sold by "BIG NAME MANUFACTURERS" and Greg Smith Equipment; there are major differences in the component quality of many of these "No-Name" products.

Greg Smith Equipment Sales is proud to be the exclusive dealer for the ATLAS product line in the USA.

Greg Smith Equipment works very hard to provide our customers with the highest quality lifts, wheel service equipment, and general shop equipment at the lowest possible prices.

We have been in business for over 29 years, and we understand what our customers want when it comes to their automotive aftermarket needs. Call the professionals at Greg Smith Equipment for straight answers about shop equipment.

More Information

Before buying, please consider the following:
  • Everything we post on Ebay is either in stock or contains accurate info regarding exactly when it will be. In other words, we don't make you wait! In fact, we have perhaps the largest inventory of above ground vehicle lifts, tire changers, wheel balancers, and motorcycle lifts in the country!

  • We are NOT just an Internet site. We have been a brick and mortar operation for over 29 years. If you get a chance, please come visit one of our huge equipment showrooms in Indianapolis, IN, Newark, DE, Norcross, GA, Tolleson, AZ, or Hudson, NH.

  • We have some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the industry. When you call our office during normal business hours, you will speak to a live person immediately. We realize that everybody's time is important and we do not believe in answering machines during normal business hours. Our company was started long before the Internet became popular, and we still welcome the "old-fashioned" phone call as a way to assist our customers in their buying decision. Call one of our locations with any questions.

Greg Smith Equipment has a well staffed service department that is augmented by a huge parts department. Most Internet wheel service companies are not concerned with after the sale service. Greg Smith Equipment understands the need for expert technical advice, backed up by a fully stocked parts department.

Greg Smith Equipment knows that our products (no matter how well built) will eventually need parts. We believe that a complete parts inventory (and a well trained service department) is as important as a well stocked product warehouse.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Do you stock parts for your Atlas tire changers and wheel balancers?

A: Yes, we stock parts for all of our machines in our 50,000 square foot facility located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Should you ever need a part, just give us a call. Warranty replacement parts will be sent via UPS after the defective part is returned to our warehouse (exceptions may be made depending on the circumstances). Please note that all of our tire changers and wheel balancers do come with a one year limited warranty.

Q: If I have a problem with the tire changer, who will fix it?

A: Our tire changers come with a one year limited warranty - this does not include labor. We do offer telephone technical support and troubleshooting suggestions during normal business hours, but we do not have someone that will physically come to your shop and fix your machine. In order to continue to offer our extra low prices, we assume that our customers have operated a tire changer (or wheel balancer) in the past. Our technical support staff is very knowledgeable and more than capable of helping you troubleshoot any problem over the phone. You are more than welcome to come visit our 10,000 square foot equipment showroom, where we will be glad to demonstrate our products. However, we recommend that if you have never operated a tire changer or wheel balancer before, that you find someone who can "show you the ropes." These are not complex machines, but we do assume that you have had some experience.

Q: I have shopped around for tire changers and wheel balancers and your prices seem much lower. How do your machines compare with others I have seen priced at twice as much?

A: First, you should know that our company has been selling tire changers and wheel balancers for over 29 years - longer than most any other company you will find on Ebay or anywhere else on the Internet. We have had thousands of satisfied customers. Some of the higher priced brands do offer on-site service for their products. Our customers are generally "mechanically inclined" enough to troubleshoot any problem over the phone, without having to pay a premium for on-site service. Another reason might be the brand name. Our Atlas tire changers might not be as well recognized as some of the more well known brands, and therefore we cannot (and do not) charge a premium for brand recognition. We would encourage anyone to come visit our 10,000 square foot equipment showroom. We feel our tire changers and wheel balancers are a great value for any shop owner.

FREE FREIGHT Shipping Policy:
The Atlas TC289 tire changer will be shipped by common carrier (freight prepaid) to a BUSINESS ADDRESS in the USA (lower 48 states).

Greg Smith Equipment has the sole authority to determine the freight carrier to be used for FREE SHIPPING this special product.

Power tailgate...24 hour notification…residential delivery (if available)...specific freight terminal.

Please inspect all packages upon delivery. Any damages or shortages MUST be noted on the bill of lading at the time of delivery.
