I do all my tire changing with 3 tools. First is an ordinary tool about 9 inches long. Second is the same as the first, with an inch of the staright end bent 90* and notched to hook on a spoke for a 3rd hand assist. Third is an about 15-inch version of the 1st. They are sane type as these: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...-Iron-Set.aspx I'm not sure of the brand because I've had them for 45 years. I've tried many different styles and types of irons over the years, but none work any better--they just cost more.
