Tire Bead Breaker Levers
« on: November 10, 2012, 06:14:39 AM »
RE tires are not the easiest ones to come off the wheels.  A pair of Bead Breaking Levers from Motion Pro seem to be worth having for changing tires or for replacing tubes.  One lever has forked end and the other a sharply unpturned end.  Instead of side-by-side use, one lever is place below and the other on top of that to break the bead.

That looks like a good tool. I've got a big breaker that will do cars too. looks as if you could use those and take up a lot less space.   ERC
