TSI Cheetah Bead Seater - Commercial-Quality, Model# CH-5
Quality product. Too pricey for the simplicity of it. Required product if u change ur own tires and don't have thousands to spend on a pneumatic tire changer.

Really works great
I have a tire changer and wheel balancer in my home shop and sometimes have a tough time airing up some tires, especially truck tires or trailer tires. wasn't really sure this was the "real deal" but used it the first time last week and it worked like a charm. wish I would of bought one long time ago. bought the stand and tire inflator hose with it and that was a good idea and glad I did. made using the Cheetah a lot easier.

Works great for professionals
This is a lot safer to use than any other method for hard to seat tires on big rims. Have used on farm tractor and truck tires.

Good, but not great.
The product works if the tire is in the horizontal position but is difficult to use if the tire is vertical. The valves tend to be loose and a bit sloppy - leaky, thus to use the tank you have to work fast if you want full effect of the pressure in the tank.

This is a "must have" product if you are mounting
tires on a regular bases.. It payes for it self very fast by reducing mental aggrivation when trying to mount a tire with a narrow bead width..

A MUST HAVE!!!
Anyone in the tire service industry should have one of these in their tool arsenal. Seating stiff tires as well as narrow tires on wider rims are a few advantages of the cheetah. Quit fighting and buy the right tool for the job. I bought one approxiametely 10 years ago and it's still in use without any issues. Highly recommended.

Great Tool for inflating tires
This is a great tool that I have used to inflate Semi tires down to lawn mower tires. I used a sharpie to write the recommended inflation pressure on the side of the Cheetah. You just match the tire size to the inflation pressure and your tire is on the bead. Great tool.

Cheetah bead seater
Indispensable tool in many situations, professional tire shops without this tool could not seat certain old tires with stiff sidewalls. This bead seater is the only way to safely jolt difficult tires onto the rim. Cinch straps, doughnuts, specialty levers, torch, there are lots of seating tools but you really have to have this Cheetah bead seater to cover all the bases.

TSI CHEETAH BEAD SEATER MODEL # CH-005
THE CHEETAH BEAD SEATER MODEL # CH-005 IS A VERY GOOD AND NEEDED TOOL FOR SEATING THOSE HARD TO SEAL AND AIR UP THOSE TIRES. ONLY ONE BLAST AND THE TIRE IS SEATING AND AIRING UP. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ITEM. IT WILL ALSO HELP TO SEAL AND AIR UP THOSE ATV TIRES ALSO.

I have used this on lawnmower and tractor tires, it's awesome. I wish I would have bought this tool years ago when I attempted to seat four ATV tires. If you buy this tool, buy the accessory kit and you will never struggle again seating a bead.
