My first time attempting a tire change, these tools worked okay. I would have paid a little more to get a set of three instead, as I had to use a screwdriver ground smooth in addition to complete the job. that aside, the tools do what they are intended to do.
Looks are deceiving, they look cheap. I had bought a more expensive tire spoon thinking I was getting two and thinking I was buying a superior product. I put a good bit of pressure on them and they did not break and both ends are useable.
The tire lever set was great in all respects. They are forged so that they do not bend when you put pressure on them. They are also long enough to do the job and short enough to carry along in you toolbox for traveling!
Really cool,, there's no moving parts. If you don't know how to use a church key don't get one of these. If you get the tire broke down and use these to take the tire off and put it back on you will be very happy. If you try to use these to break down the tire you'll need the church key.
These irons are shorter than my previous ones which requires one to provide a little more exertion. But the shorter iron has an advantage when trying to tuck them under brake disk or sprockets. It also makes it more difficult to over stress the tire and bust it.
Decent set of economy irons. Not stamped "cruz tools" as shown in photo. But, seems to be the same shape. Hard to complain about tire irons ! If they work well, who cares about the lack of a name on them.
