D.I.Y. Bead Breakers

Recommended Posts

Guest Fox300exchic

If you dont have a bead breaker and dropping $70 or more to get one doesnt fit your pocketbook, there's still hope. Whether you're trying to dismount the tire for repair or it's simply time to replace those old tires, this trick can help. Get a 2x4, 2x6, or even a 4x4 piece of wood that is about three to five feet in length and then pull the valve core out of the tire's valve stem. Wedge one side of the board under the front side of a truck like a ramp leading up onto your quad's tire. Make sure the edge of the board is just in front of the rim. Stand on the rim with one foot to keep it from moving and guide the driver of the vehicle slowly up the ramp. When places right, th weight of the truck will break the bead. Flip the wheel over and repeat on the other side. If the board slips down the tire without breaking the bead, have patience and slowly repeat the process until you succeed.

    • Tires, and Rims: out with the old, in with the new

      So I wanted to start a thread about modifications on ATVs OR SXSs that makem look sick or run better.  It can be any modification from new handlebar grips to a winch to an added lightbar, but I was focusing on tries and rims.  Here are some of my simple additions to my Bayou 300:  I put looker front shocks on it, added a 2500 winch, replaced the headlight with a blinding 6in light bar, and added new and bigger rims and tires:  and just for clarification, all the pics are of it with the lightbar on it, the last one is of the stock headlight.

    • Street tires

      My village has now made golf carts and atv's legal on the street and now that the wife and i can go cruise around i'm considering putting on street tires to save my knobbies. Thinking on the route of saving costs and using car rims i'm sure i will have to get adapters but has anyone had experiences doing this? Down falls? We dont mud or anything and they would be used for summer only.
