    I got a lead on a smoking deal. Anyone know if this will work with motorcycle rims also.

    The Motorcycle shop in North Carolina by Deals Gap uses one like that I think. He made a couple of small mods to make it work so it doesn't scratch the rims. I am not sure how he did it though.

    My buddy works at Sullivan Tire and we use the one they have there. The one at his work has claws not that pole. I am not sure.

    mycirus did it have a centering cone mount?

    I do not think this will work because Wheel clamping method is not the Four clamp type but rather a centering cone mount on center post

    Actually it was the other kind cause he used rags not to scratch the rims with the 4 claws.
