Rims the tool will not work on!

I don't have a complete list of tire & rim combinations that my tire tool will not work on but so far various Excel rims can be a problem and at least one BMW rim type has known issues. I do have customers that use my tire tool on both excel and on BMW rims though. I cannot guarantee my tire tool will work on every motorcycle tire & rim combination and I have no way of testing them. The best advice I can give is check your rims for a center relief area, if the rim is relatively flat all the way across on the inside then you are probably going to have problems. Also check motorcycle forums for your specific bike rims and the success rate of others changing them manually. If you are having a difficult time changing a tire using tire irons because of the lack of center relief area inside the rim then more than likely you'll have the same trouble using a similar mount demount tire tool like mine. It's all about the center relief area!

Car tires that have the standard stamped metal rims will present a real problem for my tire tool as well as my competitors because the ends will be damaged on the first tire change. Many car tires, four wheeler tires, trailer tires etc... have sharp edges that will shred both ends of the tire tool. Also, there are just way to many car rim types and tire types for me to recommend my tire tool for cars.
