Additional Information

Flaps are 4" wide bands of heavy rubber. Designed for clincher rims, lock ring style rims, split rims and other flat based rims.
They greatly increase the life of your tubes, help prevent pinching when mounting and protect the tube from chaffing on the rim as well as from mounting tools.

Helpful hint: We highly recommend you don't drive your car without these.

PLEASE NOTE: Wire Wheels use rim bands, part# RB1.

Questions and Answers
Are there special tools for getting the tire off the rim to replace the tube? Can't do it with bare hands like a bicycle.
 

The tire iron, (parts 2340, 2340-18 or 2340-24) is the most useful tool for pulling off the tire from the rim. Usually using one or two as levers you can pull it off without damage. The tire irons differ in lengths. The original is a 10" iron, but we do provide 18" and 24" for better leverage. 
   The best thing to do to help replace the tube is inflate it just enough so it is the round shape, then you can place it in the tire and put it all back together again. We also recommend the rim flaps (part RF1,RF2, or RF3) to protect the tube from the sharp edges on the rim.
