Tire Removal Tip

Recommended Posts

I've been changing Lambretta tires for almost 15 years now and figured out a better way to break the beads recently. You smarter lambrettists probably know this already.

I have a decent bead breaking tool and used to do each side one at a time. it's really hard to break the second bead that way. My tip is to break the bead on one side, then flip the wheel over, break the second bead, and then take the rim halves off.

The greatest thing in the world. I have one and it makes short work of changing tires:
