As stated, the plating on the metal portion easily chips. I didn't even finish installing the first tire before most of the plating was gone. They still work very well, but I expect a little higher quality for the price.
This is a great tire iron to use. Excellent feel, excellent leverage. But, I dropped it on the ground while changing a tire (on the ground, not on a bench or stand) and the plastic handle broke clean off. I cannot use it anymore. It's not like it broke the end off, literally the entire plastic handle broke off.
While changing tires I had a tough time, tire was cold and not wanting to move much for me. I was using this iron and a Tusk. This iron actually bent during the install. I like the design, just be careful to not put too much pressure on it. I wish it was made with the same material the Tusk was, because I do like the design.
Tip has bent too much over time, is too soft for me. I'm ordering another Tusk iron.
