This is a back saver and works great
The good: Did my first front and back tire change. Local shop wanted an excessive amount of money and the task seemed straight forward enough after watching some videos online. From Motosport I was able to buy both tires and the Motosport stand for less than the price of the tires locally. As always with Motosport, shipping was lightning quick and the prices are the best around
The bad: If you watch videos of people changing tires you'll see none of them use tire irons that look like these BikeMaster irons. But these came free with the Motosport stand so I figured they couldn't be too bad. I was wrong and there's a reason they came free. The only potentially redeeming quality I can think with these is that they didn't break apart.
The ugly: The shape of these spoons are terrible. I know I am a newb and this was my first moto tire change, but shortly into performing the tire change I realized why everyone in the videos used the thinner spoon shape. The longest of these BikeMaster irons is nearly unusable because it is too thick to fit between the rim and tire. The two smaller irons were at least usable but even with them, the shape is such that the curve gets caught underneath the bead. I was able to get the job done but I have a feeling if I had just bought some better spoons, there wouldve been a lot less cursing and better quality work with less rim gouging.
Overall: Don't be cheap. You're already saving money by doing the tires yourself.
Buy some quality spoons that are thinner and shaped better. Watch the videos online and you'll see what the pros are using. For me, I plan on buying the motion pro spoons. I'll update that review after my next tire swap...but hopefully that's in the far far far off future.
Great addition to the tire changing stand love that they sell it in a kit. Numerous sizes also for different applications.
they came and when i used them to get the tire off it came off with ease (recommended to everyone)
These were heavy duty and did the job nicely. Will probably outlast the bike or the rider.
A solid, good-quality kit. Sized just right to carry along and looks like it would not let you down!
Worst tire irons ive ever used. Theyre too bulky and if you have painted rims they will scratch them. They get stuck very easily, 4 minutes into taking the front tires off I quit cause I didnt want to ruin my rims. Ive changed many tires and these were given to me when I bought a tire stand. Stick with motion pro
They work fine. I've had sets for years and no issues
If you're changing your own tires, get these!
