patent drawingTires are likely the single most frequent repair or replacement item on a motor vehicle. Over the years motor vehicle tires have become considerably more reliable, but total reliability is yet to be achieved. At the same time, motor vehicles have generally become heavier, with their wheels and tires becoming correspondingly larger and heavier as well. In past generations, the fifteen inch wheel and a relatively narrow tire was the norm for full-size vehicles. Wheel and tire sizes have been increasing to ever larger diameters and widths, with corresponding weight increases as the years have progressed.

The Tire Handling Device of the present invention is a portable device for holding and manipulating a vehicle tire while changing a flat. The device comprises a relatively compact and lightweight tool, which may be carried easily in the trunk or storage area of a motor vehicle. It helps facilitate the handling of a tire during the removal and replacement thereof.

As attorney for the inventor of the innovative new Tire Handling Device we are currently seeking investors and manufacturing companies to license, purchase patent rights or enter into a royalty agreement for this timely invention. Interested parties can reach the attorney at the contact numbers listed at the bottom of this page.
