Plenty of leverage, works great.

If u haven't used a tire iron of this size, u don't know what ur missing. Makes changing stubborn old & mini tires a breeze!!!
I had long thought irons of this size were overkill and would only bend the rim. But proven wrong on no less than 4 front and rears mini sized and full size( Moto -Steel) rear with no flex sidewalls I am a true believer.
If u change tires that are aged( more than 6+years) or change mini tires, u can't go wrong with this tool.
if you don't have a set, do it.
Had to change the tires on my sons 2004 Yamaha TTR-90 and this and this spoon worked great. I ordered one of these and a smaller one too, but this one gave me the leverage needed. Small tires are tuff to change and this made it so much easier. Good purchase and would recommend.
After fighting tires with the 10 inch spoons I finally spent some money and got a decent tire spoon. This is worth every penny, it cut the time of changing a tire in half and the effort. I'll probably buy another!
Solid handle and good length. Perfect size for me!
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.
