A big Hit from the Start

In 1947, Gil Coats created his wheel holder for changing tractor tires in his farm-implement business.

World’s First Semi-Automatic Tire Changer

His invention quickly evolved, and with Jack Hennessy, they launched one of the most respected and recognizable brands in the tire-service equipment industry.
