Which and Where to get decent Tire Irons that will not break the bank?

I am going to order a new set of tires for my old 96 KLR. So I am also looking for a decent set of Tire Irons that will not break the bank?

They will be for home use mainly.



Thank You.

Off the top of my head is the 10.5" Tusk Spoons https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p...tire+spoon+set as good as the so called Motion Pro 10.5" Spoons https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p...tire+spoon+set ?

Your preference remains the driver, but . . . Cycle Gear has serviceable tire irons with hex wrench ends fitting front and rear axle nuts.

These robust tools reside typically in my tool tube.

Motion Pro has operationally similar products, priced somewhat higher, IIRC.

The Tusk stuff I have seen is decent quality. Can't speak for the spoons but I'm a KLR owner so I would go with the cheaper ones.

I currently have 3 of these:

and one of these:

plus some of the spoons you mention.

For home use I went in with a couple other guys and bought this:
