The BeadBuster XB-550 HEAVY DUTY is the big brother of the original XB-450. All of the 45X series tools have the same design geometry, the 550 is larger in every way. Heavier steel, thicker walls, more extension.
They employ a "clamp and ram" method that pushes down on the steel cord inside of the tire bead--not the sidewall like conventional units--bringing the rest of the tire with it. These compact and lightweight tools are durable and easily portable making it a perfect toolbox item.
And, no adjustment is needed for different tire/wheel sizes. Save time, money, and frustration by quickly and easily changing your own tires whenever, and wherever you want. 7 lbs (3.5Kg) shipping weight.
