I use two per, the short one as a 'sacrificial' one, to keep co$ts down (I'm a pensioner....).

Got to go, wrestling time with the dog!!

This would be a good post to copy to How To Thanks for sharing!!!
Got that Bead Breaker from Whitehorse Gear, but don't remember who supplied the tire irons.

Glen - look for a PM on those generic 'dyna-beads'....

NEXT time I'll try for a FEW more pics....
