Motion Pro BeadPro Tire Bead Breaker and Lever Tool Set
- Product Review (submitted on 22 April 2013):
Heidenau K60 tyres can be a little troublesome to break from the Excel rim, In the past I've used a length of wood wedged under the car tyre but last time I used this method the wood broke so I ended up taking the tyre and wheel to the local car tyre fitting place to break the bead.
These Motion Pro bead breaker levers have been on my radar for a while but they are quite spendy so I've held off buying them but with my MOT test coming up and the back tyre getting low I put my hand in my pocket and stumped up the cash to buy a set and I'm glad I did, I used them today for the first time and managed to completely break the bead on my rear tyre within 3 minutes for the first side and a couple of mins for the other side.
They are also very good quality tyre irons and weigh next to nothing, they'll last forever and are essential kit for longer trips.
Verdict? Money well spent.
