Snap-on says its Blue-Point Wheel Lift Assist (YA1714) can do most of the manual lifting of tire and wheel assemblies from the vehicle to the tire changer, from the tire changer to the wheel balancer, and from the wheel balancer back to the vehicle.

The device is designed to work on passenger cars, light trucks and 19.5-inch truck wheel and tire assemblies commonly found on medium-duty vehicles. It can hold up to 130 pounds of tire/wheel weight and 24 to 36 inches in tire diameter range, and can lift a tire/wheel more than 29 inches high, according to the company; it automatically adjusts for different tire sizes and helps the user easily align tire and wheel assemblies to the hub studs.
