Hi all, what is the best way to minimise damage to an alloy rim when changing a tyre with tyre levers? are there any simple/inexpensive methods?I can break the bead with no damage using a jack but from then I find it very difficult not to damage the rim, I have seen these plastic pieces that clip on the rim but they are also a bit tedious to use. Any other ideas?
Any advice/opinion would be appreciated. regards Mark

Hi Mark,

Given that you will only be able to break the bead with a jack provided there is still sidewall left, you will undoubtedly find yourself in the position that you need a dedicated bead breaker.

You will find that Tyre Jaws not only break the bead but also facilitate tyre fitment without damage to the rim.

Do yourself a favour and check them out.
