For the Le Mans and LMS service we heavily modified several Giuliano Smaxi tyre changers, two of which are pictured below:

The modified cabinet is the shot blasted and re powder coated in Dunlop Motorsport colour's. The machine is then carefully re assembled including any other modifications that were required.
Some machines had the Bead breaker completely removed, whilst some still have the bead breaker fitted.

This had to be done without causing additional damage to the wheel. This was achieved by the fitting of nylon jaw covers and the patented Giuliano interchangeable mounting head system.
