Best seller! The Weaver® W-898XS Tire Changer has become one of America's best-selling tire changers since 2007. Now with BLACK ARMOUR™ turntable wheel protection included. Why have they become so popular? As our reviews confirm, Weaver® Tire Changers are strong on tough tires, reliable in demanding shops, have a delicate touch on nice rims. All Weaver® tire changers and balancers are manufactured by Nexion, the Italian company that invented the first wheel clamp tire changer in 1962. But we don't stop there! Our 35+ year tradition is that we take care of our customers after the sale with a huge parts inventory and outstanding customer service. 

The W-898XS Tire Changer is our commercial-grade automotive and light truck tire machine that handles the larger clamping ranges 13" to 28" (across clamps). It also includes the built-in bead blaster inflation jet system and plastic rim protectors at a very affordable price. This changer can "Git R Done!"

FREE SHIPPING!  Includes Free Residential and Free Lift Gate Service!  

Check Out these 5 New Features on XS Models:

  • Stainless steel bead breaker cylinder for longer service life
  • Faster bead breaker with quick deflation valves improves cylinder speed from 6 seconds to 3 seconds
  • New bead breaker force is increased by 1.5 times
  • Larger hex bar support to resist flex on tough low profile tires - was 36mm now 41mm doubling the strength.
  • X shape turntable with BLACK ARMOUR™ turntable wheel protection. Provides cutouts for better visibility under the wheel when clamping the outside of the rim.

Which Weaver® Tire Changer is Right for you? (See chart below)

The only difference between the W-894XS and the W-898XS is the clamping range and turntable size.

*Note - Clamping ranges shown are not wheel sizes, they are clamp measurements. Outside clamping is the typical method used to protect nice wheels.


By adding the optional W-C-M-0400000 MC/ATV Adapters to a W-898XS it will open to 30" when clamping from the outside of the wheel. This means you could likely do most 28" wheels depending on the flange thickness and how that effects the overall diameter of the wheel. 

By adding the optional W-C-M-0400000 MC/ATV Adapters to a W-894XS it will open to 26" when clamping from the outside of the wheel. This means you could likely do most 24" wheels depending on the flange thickness and how that effects the overall diameter of the wheel.


  • W-893 / 894 Series using inverted position: 7.5"-19"
  • W-893 / 894 Series using reverted position: 14"-26"
  • W-898 Series using inverted position:10.25"- 23" 
  • W-898 Series using reverted position: 17"-30"

Note - The Bead Blaster will be out of position to assist seating the beads when using this adapter set.

The Weaver® W-898XS Tire Changer is the perfect wheel clamp tire changer for your commercial tire shop, general repair shop, car dealership, body shop, farm shop or car enthusiast. The W-898XS has a large electric turntable capable of clamping up to 28", quick-acting wheel clamping jaws, a bead blaster inflation system and a powerful bead breaker. The W-898XS is our best valued professional-grade tire changer for larger wheel sizes.

The W-898XS Tire Changer has a powerful built-in bead blaster inflation system that maintains adjustment to varying rims sizes. This built-in system has the air nozzles placed inside each of the wheel clamp jaws, so the blaster is always in the right position to seat the beads and allow easy inflation on most rim/tire sizes. Beware - there are similarly priced tire changers on the market today that do not include a bead blaster inflation system. Both the W-894XS & W-898XS have this important feature as standard equipment.

The W-898XS can be used for high-priced alloy rims when jaw protectors are used and motorcycle tires when the optional ATV/Motorcycle tire changer adapters are used. The W-898XS wheel clamp machine is designed to eliminate contact between the mount/demount head and prevent damage to wheels and tires.

The Weaver® W-894XS is manufactured by Nexion and carries a 1-year limited warranty. Nexion is the Italian Manufacturer Nexion SpA which owns the Italian Brands; Corghi, HPA Faip, Mondolfo Ferro, Orlandini, Sice, Tecnomotor, Teco and Bright.

    Best tire changer ever for high volume shop this is the second machine I buy I had a coat machine and three ranger machine these machine s is a lot better than the three changer machines and Derek weaver company is best in the warranty

    Posted by John Klingler on 8th Mar 2019

    We are not a high volume shop but are fairly busy. The tire changer makes even the large diameter tires easy. Well built unit easy to assemble. I would recommend this tire changer to anyone as the perfect midsize entry into tire changing. Our company has about about 5 tire changers and balancer combos in different locations up and down the midatlantic region and we are very happy with the performance they have given us.

    So far so Good

    Posted by Steve on 1st Aug 2018

    I've only had the tire machine for a week as why 4 star. Changed several tires with no problems. Installation was a breeze after watching the Video. The written instructions are worthless. Tire machine seems heavy duty enough but time will tell. So far so good. if it lasts it will definitely be 5 star

    Very nice!!!

    Posted by Richard on 26th Mar 2018

    I have a small auto shop and this thing gets it done. I have an older Coats machine that still works but this new machine is much easier and faster. I’ve done about 25 tires so far and haven’t been back to the Coats. I guess that will be just a backp now.

    Posted by Eric T. Sawyer on 4th May 2017

    I have used this changer for a while now. It was purchased with the arm kit. I have used all other brands and would put this up against any of them. I had a problem with a broken part (do to my abuse) and Marah handled the order for the replacements very well. Thank you DW for a great experience!

    Posted by Rick on 22nd Aug 2016

    Bought this machine to replace a 30 year old Coats 4030. What a difference this machine makes. Faster tire changes with less effort, and now we can do the larger pickup tires and alloy rims.

    Best Company and machine for the money

    Posted by Stan Tharp on 18th Sep 2013

    I reviewed tons of tire machines and spoke with countless sales people at various companies. And I have to say hands down Derek Weaver was the most knowledgeable and friendly. Carol was a joy to deal with and made me feel like my purchase mattered and . Cant beat the specs on this machine for the price you are paying and its durable and dependable. I also just ordered the W-977 from them yesterday, they made the first purchase so easy and friendly that I didnt waste countless hours researching specs on all the different brands available. Next up is a lift for another shop I'm associated with and Derek Weaver and Carol will get that sale also. Thank you for making the process of spending money easy :)

Derek Weaver Company is proud to offer our high quality products with free shipping or warehouse pickup. Here's how it works...


All Products on our website are offered with "Free Shipping". This means the freight charges are included in the price. Most of our products weighing less than 800-lbs. are offered with “Absolute Free Shipping” which means there are no extra fees. In this case you will notice the phrase “FREE SHIPPING! Includes Free Residential and Free Lift Gate Service!”, in the description of the products page. Absolute Free Shipping also means there are no additional fees for Liftgate Service or Residential Delivery. The only additional fee that you may incur would be if the address were changed during shipment which would incur a reconsignment fee by the freight carrier that we would only pass on if it were not our mistake.

For equipment over 800-lbs (most 2 & 4-Post lifts) there are some limitations for Free Shipping depending on weight and delivery location. In this case you will notice the phrase “Free Shipping To Over 85% of the USA - See Where It's Free” in the description of the products page. Most of the USA will require no additional fee. This applies to over 85% of the continental USA (lower 48 states). Free shipping does not apply to Alaska or Hawaii. Some parts of the country are affected by higher freight rates due to the combination of weight and delivery location which will require a small additional charge to cover the higher rate charged by the freight carriers. Our shopping cart will not calculate the difference (added fee), so we will contact you if this is the case. Rather than advertise the higher rates across the board we choose to show the lowest possible cost to most of the country. Like “Absolute Free Shipping” there will be no extra charge for lift gate or residential delivery. The following areas may have additional freight: North Western US, North Eastern US, Long Island, Western Colorado, the Dakotas, some parts of Florida & California and any area deemed a remote location by the freight company. Prior to ordering give us a call at 817-560-9510 or email and we can provide accurate information regarding Free Shipping or any additional charges.


Shipping and delivery time given during the freight quote process is an estimated time of delivery given by the carrier. Choosing Liftgate Delivery may extend delivery times due to limited liftgate equipment at the delivering terminal. Meeting the delivery schedule is subject to the day the freight is shipped and the carrier’s ability to meet their schedule. Derek Weaver Co., Inc. does not guarantee that a carrier can meet their projected delivery time but we will provide you with the proper tracking information by email so you can follow the tracking time and arrange for special delivery needs with the carrier as needed. Any additional fees incurred as a result of consignee being unable to meet scheduled delivery time or cause for redelivery or reconsignment to a different location will be at consignee’s expense.


Choosing Residential may extend the estimated delivery time due limited liftgate trucks at the delivering terminal, additional communication and handling by the freight company. Please keep this in mind when choosing residential delivery.


Make sure you can unload the freight. A forklift or lifting equipment is required for items over 800-lbs. The trucking company is only responsible for delivery to your loading dock if delivered to a business address or curbside if a residential lift gate delivery. Lift gate service is available for some equipment and can assist in unloading 2 and 4-post lifts however you will still need a forklift. Liftgate capacity is typically 1000-lbs and cannot unload a 2 or 4-post lift on its own.


If you are unable to unload a truck, we have the option of letting you pick the freight up at the closest terminal to your location. When picking up at a terminal, the freight company will load your truck or trailer for you which is included in the freight cost. Call our office (1-817-560-9510) to determine the location of the closest terminal. If you require terminal pickup please place a note in the comment box requesting terminal pickup and we will contact you with the terminal location. Covered trailers or trailers with ramps are not acceptable as they prevent the forklift from getting the load into the trailer. They will not drive onto a ramped trailer. Please remove the ramps prior to picking up if possible.

All shipments must be inspected immediately upon receipt



Choose this option if you have minor dings and scratches or a part that needs replaced to make the unit satisfactory. Make note of the damage before you sign the freight bill. You will be responsible for filing the freight damage claim with the carrier. Derek Weaver Co, Inc. will provide any replacement parts or touch up paint needed should you choose this option and the carrier should provide for reimbursement. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our customer service department @ 1-817-560-9510


Choose this option if the carrier has severely damaged the freight beyond your judgment of a simple repair. Derek Weaver Co, Inc. will file all freight claims. Get a copy of the freight bill from the truck driver and email it with a brief explanation of the situation to us. A replacement will be shipped as soon as we verify possession of the freight with the carrier.


If you would like to pick-up the item at one or our warehouses, please call ahead to make sure the item is in stock and schedule your pick-up. Picking up at our warehouse will save you in freight fees but will require sales tax to be collected. If you do not see a pickup price on our website for the product you are interested in you may call our office for more information.

In Texas we load Monday – Friday by appointment only.

In North Carolina we load Monday – Friday by appointment only.

All Two Post and Four Post Lifts require trailer for pickup. Be prepared for pick-up by understanding the item’s weight and dimensions and using the proper truck and/or trailer for hauling. We cannot load open or enclosed trailers with ramp gates. Our warehouse will load the item onto your vehicle and/or trailer but is not responsible for properly securing the load on your vehicle and you will need to make sure you have the proper straps and equipment for hauling. All items for local pick-up are charged state sales tax at the appropriate local rate. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call our customer service department @ 1-817-560-9510
