8" Tire Bead Breaker Tool

Recommended Posts

If you bolted the angle irons to the upper plate on the underside, you could use a longer one (upper plate) and have holes to work on different size rims I'm thinking

Yes most likely but "all" the garden tractors I have anything to do with have 8" front wheels and that's why I welded and less moving parts to scratch up the paint, but feel free to take my idea and expand/improve for your needs,and usually with the 12" rear wheels it's just easier/less frustrating to have a tire shop dismount/remount those,Jeff.

:handgestures-thumbupright:   Jeff;    that's a Kool Tool!  I have had good luck with the H.F. tire changer bead breaker on 12" tires but the 8" can be a PITA.  :text-coolphotos:

Yes sir those 8" seem to be a real PITA I changed a set out on my father's CUB CADET fought those for hours before I made this and then 5 minutes beads broken on my 520 no more battered hands sweating and foul mouthing,Jeff.
