Tyre Seating Tool

https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/tools/bbb-easy-tyre-fitting-tool-btl78/

Bought one of these as my tyres were really tight to get on rims, having to use levers to get them on. Thought I would give it a try!
They actually work really well, I would recommend them, not expensive and handy to have. Other suppliers are available :D

    I can agree with what’s said about this tool. I had a pair of conti 5000’s that wouldn’t go on, not even with normal levers, I pitched and ruined 2 tubes trying. So have up and got one of these and it worked like a charm. I did worry however about using the opposite rim as the leverage point. I would be interested in seeing others views on the dangers of this.

    Can it be used with tubeless tyres?.

    Yes
  • I don't see why not as all it is doing is pulling the bead over.
    Actually wished I had out in my pocket for my ride today, new bike and puncture, really hard getting tyres on and off to replace the tube!
