PLEASE make sure to count the number of tire gauges you are selecting in the check boxes so that it is equal to the number of tires you are actually ordering. If the number does not match, your order will be cancelled.
About 1/4 of the orders we've received have more or fewer gauges selected than the tire quantity, and we can no longer take the time to contact everyone for clarification. (Our website is not capable of automatically verifying the number of checked boxes at the time of ordering). Thank you for your understanding.

This compact, lightweight system keeps your wire coils organized, so you are always prepared to splice or replace a broken string. Each tire holds up to 3 ounces of wire, made of durable ABS plastic, and is marked with a wire gauge number for easy identification. The unique design of the Piano Wire Tires prevents the wire from accidental uncoiling, which can be a problem with other storage methods.
This set does not include any wire, and is the more economical option if you prefer to load them with your own wire. We also sell sets pre-loaded with wire.
The basic set includes 12 tires, but you can configure your set to have as many as 19 tires (that is how many will stack on the storage tube).
What wire gauges are included?
It's up to you, because the set is custom made to your specification.
Available wire gauges: 12, 12.5, 13, 13.5, 14, 14.5, 15, 15.5, 16, 16.5, 17, 17.5, 18, 18.5, 19, 19.5, 20, 20.5, 21, 21.5 and 22.
Use the "Number of Tires" selector to choose how many you want, and then use the "Gauge Selection" check boxes to indicate the wire gauges that will be marked on the tires. Please make sure the number of checked boxes matches the number of tires you are ordering.
Each Piano Wire Tires set comes with a lightweight zipper bag. The tires are stacked on a 12" x 3.5" storage cylinder, which can hold tools or parts.
When loading the tires, we suggest using about 1.5 oz. of wire in each tire for a lightweight set that is easy to travel with, while still providing sufficient wire for the occasional string breakage.
