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.
Benefits of our Atlas TC289 Tire Changer
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 Adaptersprevents 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.

WarrantyAtlas Automotive Equipment of CANADA – Atlas Tire Changer Warranty NOTE: ALL WARRANTY CLAIMS MUST BE PRE-APPROVED BY THE MANUFACTURER TO BE VALID. Complete Warranty and Legal Terms Atlas Automotive Equipment of CANADA offers a one year limited structural parts warranty on all Atlas tire changers. Atlas Automotive Equipment of CANADA warrants the equipment to the original purchaser against defects in material or workmanship under normal use for a period of one year from the date of purchase. This limited warranty shall be limited to the repair or replacement of materials or parts found defective, at the discretion of Atlas Automotive Equipment of CANADA. This limited one year warranty DOES NOT apply to normal wear items or to items through which compressed air passes. Airvalves, cylinders, and other moving parts that are subjected to a direct contact with the flow of compressed air are covered by a limited 90 day warranty. Our air operated parts are designed to be “powered” by well lubricated and “moisture-free” compressed air. “Dirty air” with no lubrication will cause problems with any air powered piece of equipment. If we examine a part and feel that it is a manufacturer’s defect; we will make sure that part is covered under warranty for 180 days. However, we will not warranty any part that has been abused, altered, or has been subjected to “dirty air”. We believe that your Atlas will provide years of trouble free service, but you must provide periodic maintenance to ensure the longevity of your machine. We stock a complete parts inventory and employ several full time technical advisors that can “walk you through” most issues that may arise with your Atlas tire changer. Our limited warranty policy (one year parts only) does not include a labor warranty. Our products are sold at such a competitive price that Atlas Automotive Equipment of CANADA cannot afford to send technicians into the field to repair the Atlas tire changers. We assume that the buyer of our tire changer is mechanically inclined or has employees that are mechanically inclined. Our tire changers are built with “plug and play” parts that make repairs very easy. This is the same philosophy that the Personal Computer Industry has used for many years. Most parts can be changed in a manner of minutes. We offer a toll free number 1-888-400-5438 for service and parts information. This toll free number is directed to our Calgary, AB location. The service and parts department is open from 8 am to 5 pm MST from Monday to Friday. There are certain parts that are considered “wear items” and are NOT included in the one year limited warranty. These parts include plastic jaw protectors, plastic mount/demount head inserts, airline fittings, hoses, and clamping jaws. Cosmetic defects or blemishes that do not interfere with the functionality of the tire changer are also NOT included in the one year limited warranty. Parts that have been subjected to abuse or misuse will NOT be considered for warranty.

Product Assembly & Setup
Selling automotive equipment we have found that most of our customers are mechanically minded and look forward to settting up and assembling their new purchase. Most items we offer can be setup and assembled by two people within a reasonable time frame. Before tackling this project here are a few tips that we think will make your life a little bit easier:
- Review the manually fully before you begin setup. The manual should be included with your item but if you cannot locate it simply go to the product page on our website and download it for FREE. This manual has been put together and maintained over the years and will include all the tricks we have learned to make the assembly of your as seamless as possible
- Don't like reading or don't need the manual? That's fine, but maybe take a minute and check out the videos we have posted on each of the product pages. We understand that some people have the ability to problem solve on their own but why not get the inside information so you can spend less time having to problem solve?
- If you haven't already received your item, get an uderstanding of you will need to transport or unload it. Shop equipment like tire changers and wheel balancers are a dream to handle compared to car lifts. If you are assembling your car lift take time to plan our your install.
- Start by making sure the install location and area(s) surrounding it are clean and clear making it easy for you to move around and manipulate the pieces.
- Try to get the entire crate close to the install area without impeding it. There are some heavy pieces that need to be moved into place and the less you have to move them the better.
- Disassemble the packaging and pieces and have a look through them to ensure all pieces are there and get an idea of what each item is. You are going to need them at one point and if you have someone holding a heavy item while you search out a bolt or hose it is going to be a long day!
- If you are reading the manual, read 2-3 steps ahead of where you are at. We have heard time and time again how a customer has installed their lift to 90% only to find that a hose or cable needed to be put in place two steps earlier and now they have to essentially disassemble the lift only to put a small piece in place and then reassemble it.
- Be sure to review the electrical requirements of the product your are purchasing. Some items are supplied in either 110V or 220V. Others are manufactured so you can just plug it in while some have a "pig tail" which means you will need an electrician to either hard wire it to your panel or install a plug
- If you are assembling a car lift, you will need hydraulic fluid to make the lift work. PLEASE NOTE: we do not supply the hydraulic fluid for your lift. In general we recommend AW-32 hyraulic fluid for use in all of our car lifts (regardless of the type). A 5 gallon pale is typically more than enough and will usually leave you with a little extra
- When filling your hydraulic fluid for the first time don't rush the process. Fill the resevior to 1/3 or 1/2 and then run the lift up and down. Get the air and kinks out and then, when the lift is in the lowest position, fill it to 2/3 or 3/4 and run the lift up and down again. DO NOT fill the resevoir past 1/3 or 1/2 when the lift is in the raised position as there is flud throughout the cyclinders and other components. We have heard many times that a customer has filled the resevoir full when the lift is in the raised position and the as soon as they begin lowering the lift the resevoir becomes overfilled and spills all over the shop. This is a huge mess to clean up.
- Some hydraulic cylinders may be "air locked" from manufacturing which will not allow the piston to extend when pulled by hand. This does not mean the cyclinder is damaged, it is simply a result of the manufacturing process. To overcome this, start by ensuring that your feeder hoses to the cylinder are not connected (this would close the system and will not let air in or out). Using a ratchet strap or similar item, slowly put tension on the piston end and gently apply pressure trying to extend the piston out of the cylinder. Resistance will build up in the first couple inches of extending and then the "air lock" should break. You might get a little pop and the ratchet strap will loosen suddenly (hence the reason to apply pressure slowly) and now you should be able to extend and retract the piston by hand with little effort.
These tips are friendly suggestions from us and the years of experience we have gained working with these products. Although they don't apply to every product, every time we hope that you will take them at face value while still reviewing the other information (such as manuals and videos) we provide in regards to assembling and setting up your product. Your safety and satisfaction are our paramount concerns. If there are any questions or concerns throughout the assembly or operation process of your product please do not hesitate to contact us.
