These Beadbreaker/tire spoons are the best thing since sliced bread. Super easy, Broke stock tires off w/no problem. I also spray WD40 around bead and let sit a couple minutes. Put some Dyna heads in new tires, smooth as glass. saved 50 bucks already next time over 100.00 in all my years of tire changes at home or on trail, nothing better.

Work very well. I’ve changed 2 rear and 1 front tire with these. Bead breaker works good. Little tip if you’re using theses let the air out and break the bead while wheels are still on bike. Makes it easy to break bead a little and spin wheel to break bead a little at a time till it come completely off.
Breaking beads is no longer an issue... I hate changing tires all together but want to change my attitude on the subject. Was torn between these and the shorter version so I just went this route for now. These and the Baja No Pinch tool... attitude changed and no more frustration what-so-ever!
I got these after fighting with a couple of tire changes using my small set of levers. The same week I received these, I put them to the test changing out the rear tire on my KLR.These made breaking the bead easier and changing the tire almost enjoyable.
I just installed new tires on my 2000 Honda 1100 Shadow. The bead breaker part of these tire tools work wonderful, that alone made it worth the money. They broke the bead on both tires quickly and efficiently. I bought the shorter, forged aluminum set. They are very sturdy set of irons but I could of used a little more length for leverage. Quality product and would buy them again.
I bought these hoping to be able to start changing my own ATV tires. Well that hasn't happened yet. The spare tires I tried to practice on have defeated me so far. I have read on other sites that older tires really stick to the rim and I think that is my issue. The bars slide in, but when I try to pop the bead, the forked bar pops off the inner ring of the tire and then just pushed down the sidewall, but not the bead itself. They might work better with tires that haven't been mounted for very long. I'm just a recreational rider and my ATV tires don't get worn out that quick so they have been mounted for several years.
TECH NOTE: It is noted in the product description that this tool is for most street and off-road motorcycle tires.
