The new Tire Lifter is designed to make it easier for one person to lift heavy tire and wheel assemblies from horizontal to vertical. The tool can be used to lift mounted 22.5 and 24.5 single tires and 300-lb. super single tires. One person operates the Tire Lifter by unfolding the hook and placing it under the tire, then pulling the lever back and lifting. When not in use, the portable, 13-lb. tool folds into a 49-inch package and can be hung on a wall.
