If you’ve got some serious damage that a plug won’t be able to fix, these skills could make a big difference out in the bush. In this case, we are using Tyrepliers.

This is the first installment of a three-part series, which will run you through removing, repairing and replacing a tyre so it can be used an operating spare. It’s important to note here that a trained professional should inspect the tyre as soon as possible, but have another spare that can at least hold air out in the bush could mean the difference between making a tough satphone call, or being able to limp out under your own steam.

  • I noticed that your rim was an Alloy.
    You didn’t seem to make allowance for protecting the alloy rim during removal. (Alloy rims damage very easily)
    I have a different brand of bead breaker and protection pieces are supplied to keep the tyre levers from damaging the rim and bead area.. (I also have “Tyrepliers” you used but don’t use it on alloy rims.
    What are your comments please as I would rather use “Tyrepliers” as they are quite easy to use.
