OTC Introduces New Bead Breaking Tool Set

The two-tool set includes a locking plier and pry tool, which work together to efficiently break tire beads.


OTC introduced the new 5726 Bead Breaking tool set, designed to break down automotive, motorcycle, ATV and small garden tractor tires. The new tool saves technicians time by easily and efficiently separating the tires from their rims.

The two-tool set includes a locking plier and pry tool, which work together to efficiently break tire beads. 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.
