These levers have been recently updated to improve material durability when spreading disc brake calipers and peeling tough tires; and structural changes to spread load across the rim when mounting tires, reducing potential for rim damage on lightweight wheels. Our Steel Core Tire Levers have a hardened CRV tool steel center to prevent flex and breakage. And when getting your tire off is an extra big chore, each lever has a spoke attachment to help you get maximum leverage and secure removal. Add to this an additional polymer tab to properly spread hydraulic disc brake pads and you have a true roadside or trailside 2-in-1 companion. Our Steel Core Tire Levers make inferior tire removal tools a thing of the past. Also found in our Team Edition Tool Kit.
