Hi all. I'm looking into purchasing a bead breaker for changing my own tires at home. Those of you that have used or have bead breakers, I would appreciate it if you could let me know which one you have, how it compairs to others, and pros and cons. Price, durability, and ease of use would be helpfull as well.

Thanks!

I've tried the above method.......and it works if you have absolutely NOTHING else. Fortunately, my NoMar tire machine comes with a built in bead breaker.

Shameless plug: BeadBuster XB-450 ATV Bead Breaker Tool
I am the owner of the company, so I can vouch for the quality!
It was designed for ATV's, but works great on street bikes as well. More $$ than the 2x4's...but it's an actual tool made for that purpose

This video shows a comparison with a hot chick!

Shit, I own that movie.

I use a large slide hammer designed to break beads on truck tires sold at northern tool. But I really like the bead buster mentioned above. Would definitely get one if I didn't already have the slide hammer. Cost is about the same too.
