I found this tool to be a multi-use tool every mechanic should own one !!!!!!!!
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.
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.
