I have a 2005 GU Nissan Patrol with Factory 17in Allot wheels.
I have tried to carry out a tyre removal from the rim using my tyre pliers, but it creats alot of chips in the alloy around the edge.
Can anyone offer any advise??

Corey K,
I had the same problem, took the Tyre Pliers back to where I bought them from and bought the R & R Beadbreakers, much better tool, bit more expensive but they work a lot better never had any problems since. My opinions and I don't have any affiliation.

put the alloys in the shed, and buy some cheaper steelys

not having used the tyre plyers, can you put something between the rim and the plyers to stop the chipping, like a piece of garden hose?

Its not the tyrepliers which cause the damage as i have peeled the bead as a test already but the hassle is the tyre levers...
Just take two spares and a puncture repair kit...

2 suggestions:

Pretty much every puncture, short of a destroyed tyre can be repaired using a plug kit. Much easier than tyre levers, patches and you can fix the tyre without taking it off the car.

Secondly, Use a car jack or a high lift jack as your beadbreaker - much nicer to alloy rims. link to car jack beadbreaker

Tyreplier type Bead breakers are unnecessary piece of equipment in my opinion, but the shops love to sell them.

Cheers
Phil

Thanks for the advice Phil,

I'm going to have a go at making the attachment for the toyota vehicle jack this weekend.

Cheers, Corey.
