These are my go to tire irons when I change a dirt bike tire. I like he general shape of the head. It is the correct shape to that it grabs the tire but doesn't seem to grab/pinch things (tubliss, or tube) that you don't want to grab. My only complaint is I wish they were a couple inches longer but it is not a big deal.
Nice and light, fit in the tool pack great and are pretty durable for their size. You should probably use larger steel irons if installing a new tire, these are reasonably tough but can bend if you really crank on them.
I like the size and ease of using these tire irons and never had a problem in over 10 years of owning them. I've had other brands that have bent or were too bulky for a motorcycle tire. I use these professionally (weekly) basis.
I bought these to use on the trail. So I thought the small size was perfect. Of course I ended up with a flat. I used these tire irons and I never got the tire off. They bent extremely easily. I had to limp back on the flat and use the full size irons. I threw them away.
don't be me... I bought these originally, I was cheeping out and struggled with the 1st dirt tire (I hadn't changed one of these in 25 years?) then I broke down and bought the spoon type... I am sure my technique improved but the thinness of the spoon types really make a huge difference. also, the biggest advice i can give is make sure to keep the tire in the middle of the rim and off the bead on the opposite end of the tire you are mounting. also, def get three tire irons.
This tire iron is as advertised, small, sturdy. and works well. If you are looking for something for routine tire changes go for a 12"+ tire iron. I personally use 15" and they seem to be the perfect size for my application (180/55R17)
Compact and light weight not to mention durable. These tire irons work great. Just the right size for travel and or tool box. Priced right to get the job done. I would recommend these to anyone who needs to change out their own motorcycle tires. Great product!!!
These are for carrying on a dual sport or long trail ride. BUY the longer ones or ones with handles for your tool box. These are more durable than some other off brands that bend. These seem to not bend even thought they are short and thin.
This is a basic tool everyone should have. However the 8' length is too short and doesn't allow for much leverage when placing a tire on a rim, especially hard terrain tires. Would be better with a handle on the end.
Finally gave up and bought myself some quality irons. Borrowed my buddy's cheap knockoff irons and bent them easily. These MP irons are a little shorter than what I would've liked, but I am able to spoon on 21" fronts and 19" rears with no problem. I've taken off/put on Maxxis, Bridgestone, and Michelin tires using only two irons. Can't say enough about these entry level, basic tire irons. I'm glad I bought Motion Pro.
I was in a hurry to place my order and ordered the wrong spoons. Nobody's fault but mine but I'm not quite sure why anyone would order these unless doing alot of 10" and 12" wheels. I would go with the longer Motion Pro spoons. Next size up I believe.
