Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has introduced the OTC 5726 Bead Breaking tool set to break down automotive, motorcycle, ATV and small garden tractor tires.
The two-tool set includes a locking plier and pry tool. The locking plier features a wedged jaw that is forced into the tire bead when clamped on the wheel rim.
The pry tool is then hooked with the plier jaw, acting as a second wedge to break the bead and separate the tire from the rim. When the pry tool is pushed down, the tire bead is easily broken.
Bosch says the new tool saves technicians time by easily and efficiently separating the tires from their rims.
