The OTC Tire Service Hammer is designed with unique tire and wheel service features — a bead breaking wedge, a top hook and a sledge edge.The convex-shaped bead breaking wedge penetrates the tire bead effectively, and a top hook can be used as a wheel tipper. A sledge end features a hook to drag the tire into position. This 10-lb, 32" hammer can be swung at the tire sidewall to drive the wedge between the tire and wheel, ultimately breaking the tire bead away from the wheel rim. To flip the tire over to break the bead on the other side, the top can be hooked onto the wheel center or the wheel rim. Part of the Best Forged Hammers line it features an indestructible handle that outlasts wood- and fiberglass- handle hammers by more than 30,000 strikes.
