ELP_JC Posted May 10, 2006 Share Posted May 10, 2006 Hi gang. Couldn't break the darn bead this time around with my rudimentary 2x6 method; Contis have a smaller profile than previous D220s. This is the only portion of the tire changing operation that is giving me trouble. I don't have any space, or would have bought a tire changer a long time ago. Just need a way to break the darn bead with something more efficient than wood. Remember seeing advertised a kind of giant C-clamp that pressed both sides of the tire at the same time until beads pop, but don't remember where. That's the kind of compact tool I'm looking for. And of course, that IT WORKS; that's why I'm picking your brains <he he>. Any help would be greatly appreciated. And both home-made and readily available alternatives are welcome. Thank in advance for your help folks. Link to comment
