    Baja No Pinch Tire Tool

    This is great and is for putting the tire back on the rim. Wish I would have had one of these at Moab when we put my son's new tire on his KTM...right ejfranz? We got it on but struggled with the hard tough carcass of the Maxxis tire he got.

    Some videos at the bottom of the link and if you google "Baja No Pinch Tire Tool" you'll see a bunch of youtube video's of it in use as well.

    How to Use the Tool

    Awesome tool. What do you guys use to break the bead if your doing a repair out in the middle of nowhere? I find it such a struggle changing tires in my garage I don't even bother bringing tools for that when I ride. Oh wait I do have a small 12 volt compressor.......ok forget that too until I install the 12 socket that has been sitting on my work bench for a year or so.

    Thanks to you admiral, I just bought one. Along with a Bead Buddy and a Shinko SR241 front tire.

    That's not fair! A knobby tire is not properly changed unless blood is spilled.

    Neat tool but I kinda like the old school spoons.

    The kickstand will break the bead. There are hand bead breaker tools but they are just one more thing to carry and I haven't had good luck using them.

    Yeah, that's what we had (tire spoons) and when I say we struggled I mean we fought it hard. The carcass of the Maxxis tire he used was nowhere near as easy to change as even the stock TW rear tire...except for breaking the bead part. His old tire was easier than breaking the bead on a rear TW 34.

    You'll still need the spoons though as this is only for putting the tire back on the rim not taking it off.

    I have never had a flat out on the trail (see below image ). Never used anything but spoons to remove a TW tire. The sort of exception was Mrs. Admirals ATV Ceros when I put it on backards and to take it off and put it in the correct direction. I did the home shade tree bead breaker I saw from a youtube video. It worked. 'Course this was with the ATV Tire on a Trailer Rim so it doesn't really count does it?

    You can lay the tire/rim down & use the kickstand against the bead to break it down. It's a bit of work, but it does work .
