I call it "spoon-zilla". works great, awesome quality.
This is a great product but it is just way over kill. If you need a tire iron this big your probably not doing it right. The 10 inch tire irons work perfect. I think you could use this thing on a car tire. But over all Its a god product. It is well manufactured and has a nice handle. The only down side is the handle keeps coming unscrewed. But lock tight fixed that right up.
Great tire iron if your looking for some good leverage. I have bent many of the smaller weaker ones but this one doesn't budge at all. Nice knruled grip that rotates/moves too. The tip is flat wide and thin yet strong, easy to work out and prevents tube pinching. I haven't cut a tube yet with this and some of the tires I change are those little 10inch 50cc bike tires (They can be a real pain)
This is hands down the best manual tire tool on the market. If your tired of fighting, sweating and cussing your tires on the rim then you should deff. buy this tool. I'll also tell you a little secret about this tool. If you unscrew the handle it makes a perfect wheel bearing driver. I'm sure any mechanic wouldn't agree. But if you can't afford all the tools you find what works and works good and thats the HP 17inch tire iorn. You won't catch me changing tires without it. Dont forget you can see this tool in action in the how to video section.
There's nothing close to these tire irons for dismounting and mounting tires... but unless you partially inflate the inner tube before using the irons when mounting a tire, there's a high risk of pinch flats. IOW, the pinch flats reported by other reviewers can be avoided.
I pinched 4 tubes with these levers and never used them again. They are good if you are taking off a tire with a popped tube, but if you still want your new tube to hole air, get a lever that is not as wide at the end.
Nice tire iron... Makes changing tires a breeze!!!
Great torque but this Iron has a little too much to it to stay away from biting tubes. It is hard to be sensitive enough to stay away from the inner-tube. Otherwise, well built and definitely a lot of tire iron.
This is the biggest tire iron ever. High quality construction. Great for big, tough tires.
