The iron will give you all the leverage you need. Great for changing bibs but can scratch up the rins.

I have a dozen different tire irons, so I ordered two of these to try out. I'm very impressed with how these work. In fact, I'm so impressed that I've ordered two more and I'll be giving away just about all of the others
SHARP SIDES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! scratched the heck out my new 10 inch mini rim. so i put a wire wheel to it after i saw the first big ding and now it works great. good curve for grabbing rim..
These are By far the best irons I have EVER used. Where have they been all my life? I can now change tires without much effort or stress. And I have changed 3 since I got these, and haven't come close to pinching a tube too. WIN WIN.
The other tire irons I own are going in the trash, I just bought two more of these. They easily fit under the tire and don't give me a punch in the face when I push on them!
Works great! The key is when you're just starting to put a sportbike tire on as an example. Start the tire by hand then 1/4 turn from there use this tool to get both beads at once up and over the wheel. Both beads are in the curved area of the tool and the hook of the tool on the inner part of the wheel eliminates any scratching. Now simply install the final bead as normal.
these things are a lot tougher than they look and help quite a bit when changing tires.
I can change tires all day and not scratch a wheel with these. These small ones work way better than a spoon type. If you have never changed a tire before it takes time and practice before you can do it well. If you are learning on a set of colored wheels, you might want to invest in rim protectors for the first few tire changes.
The very second i used these tire irons it scratched my brand new excell rims on my dirtbike, i was pretty mad to say the least so a few curse words later i filed the ends down a little bit and that helped but still. only buy if you have silver rims =P
