After trying multiple different types of tire spoons/irons, using these really helps. They are great for breaking a stubborn bead, and also for the first/ last couple bites. They are a bit thicker at the tip of the spoon compared to the smaller ones. With that being said, when mounting once I'm at the last couple bites, sometimes I have to pre-place them to avoid forcing them in, possibly pinching the tube or damaging the rims. I've found that having 2 of these really helps, especially with rear tires. I'm sure you could possibly change a car tire with them lol.

If you're looking for a big spoon with lots of leverage, this will do. I typically start my dismount/mount with the HeavyMaster tire iron,. Then I use the bikemaster 10" spoons to work my way around quickly and finish the job. But again, for that first pull / lift off the rim, I'm glad I have one of these HeavyMaster tire spoons in house.
Do not waste your time or money with those little spoons. Buy two of these and thank me later. A must have if you change your own tires!
I have other tire irons that bend when I change tires. They work, but I really have to bull it on there. I purchased these longer tire irons and I am very pleased with them. The handles are easy on your hands and the length gives you all the torque needed to pop a tire on/off a rim with ease. I highly recommend this tire iron. You will never have a set of those short jobs (maybe in a fanny pack, but your toolbox will have these big ones) again after you try these out.
Based on having not used yet, thank goodness. Product quality and workmanship appear excellent.
Works as it should and it's made well
Nice tire iron, feels good in hand. Strong, nice thin tip to get in behind the bead, long enough to be able to do bib mousses with easy. Well made tool.
I waited a long time to spend the money on a good tire iron, but well worth it. I have one of these and two shorter ones. Makes tire changes way easier.
This tire iron it alright. Don't let the pics fool you, this thing is huge! I gave it only 4 stars, because I actually think its a little too big. It would fine for a really stubborn tire or maybe if you were changing a car tire or something, but its really too much for your average motocross tire change. I'd stick with motion pro tire spoons. They're much more suited for MX use.
