    Tyre pliers for D4 tyre removal?

    Will these remove tyres from the standard 19Ē D4 rims?



    I know itíll be difficult, but will it work? Iím not interested in speed as Iím not a professional.

    I did a course with Gordon from GOE.. He told us you'll never break the bread on a genuine rim or a compo. He said the compos followed the genuine design for the bead and that's why they don't roll Off. If I remember correctly. I also remember him saying he tried but failed
    If at first you do not succeed, maybe your just no good and should quit!

    Right. Looks like Iíll continue to take a 2nd spare instead of the changing stuff. I do have patching stuff with my compressor

    I have used tyre pliers for many years and they have proven to be the best for me. Including home made options and others. However with a set of "Tuffants" waiting for tyres I have noticed the inside bead is quite wide, so will have to report back..

    Is it worth spending $80 on or is a 2nd spare better?

    I guess it comes down to weight.. Mind you I am seriously considering carrying a complete second spare these days🙄

    yes, but theres a bit of an art to it, many swear words chocks of plastic/wood and tape to protect the rim.

    I also suggest some cheater tubes to extend the handles for the jaws.

    I think you will find that breaking the bead is nigh impossible with tyre pliers.

    The P38A uses an AH2 profile (I assume the D4 may be the same - but it could be EH2) and one has to break the bead in the correct spot - I think it's opposite the valve stem

    It also comes down to what tyres you are running,and their condition.

    I have given up taking a second spare except in extremely remote areas,then its a carcase only,thinking the local place can swap them over if needed.i always carry an air compresser and plugs,though.

    Haven't changed or had to plug a tyre in almost 20yrs,thats on the D2's,and the D4.Helped others do it numerous times.

    I also replace my tyres long before they are completely worn out,which helps.

    Luck does take a part so no doubt one day it,and Murphy will catch up.
