“Easy Access” Truck Tire Step
“The Tire Step helps you access places on trucks and other equipment that are hard to reach,” says Aaron DeWard of Unique Truck Equipment in Grand Rapids, Michigan. “While some people get tempted to stand on top of tires, we’d rather give you some stability and prevent falls.”
The step has a flat platform that rests on top of the tire, and multiple steps to get up to the platform safely.
It won’t scuff up tire rims either. DeWard says it has rubber pads that push up against the tire rim for added stability.
“For people who might need access to a tire where the rim doesn’t protrude out, we sell an adapter bar that covers the total width of a tire. The bar presses up against the tire for added stability.”
The Tire Step is made of aluminum and folds up easily for storage. When it’s unfolded, it looks like a mini-staircase.
“There are single-step, two-step, and three-step versions. The right one depends on how high a particular tire might be,” says DeWard.
He says semi-owners are the largest target audience for the Big Truck Tire Step.
“The Tire Step is welded together and assembled here in the United States,” DeWard says. “It’s been tested to handle up to 400 lbs.
“One thing people are surprised at is how light the step feels,” he says. “It’s very easy to handle.”
The Big Truck Tire steps are available direct from the company and range in price from $235 for the one-step model up to $580 for the three-step model.
