This tool is Professional Grade, and we spared no expense in its construction. All of the steel parts are made from premium Chrome-Moly and heat treated for ultimate strength (hardened to >RC57-58), and the hardware is Upgraded to Grade 8. Our Pro Bead Breaker comes with every style of clamp arm we make, upgraded to premium Chrome-Moly steel. We also give you extra hardware just in case anything wears out. The BeadBuster XB-454 has all of the benefits of the original XB-450 & the XB-451, but is made with the finest materials available to so that it can work as hard as you, whether in the shop or at the race track. We Warranty the XB-454 for a full 3 years.
  • The post-style clamp arm is for use on reinforced ATV wheels (aka “Reinforced Rims” or “Rock Rings”). Reinforced Rims (not to be confused with Bead Locks) can be found on Kawasaki KFX OEM wheels, and certain aftermarket Baja racing wheels. >> Learn More

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. A 3/4″ wrench is required to drive the clamp and ram bolts.  Hand wrenches will work, power tools are recommended.  You can use an impact wrench, but use caution with a 1/2″ impact to not over-torque the bolts.
  2. Tire Irons are required to finish the job of removing the tire from the rim.
  3. Certain cast aluminum and alloy passenger vehicle rims and large agricultural rims have a profile that prevents the tool from clamping properly (see illustration).  See the specifications above; if in doubt, measure your rims and compare to the tool’s spec. limits.
  4. The BeadBuster 45X series was designed for use on the most common Diameters of ATV/UTV Rims: 9″ and larger. Smaller rims (7″ & 8″) have a different and shallower lip profile. Use on these rims may cause damage to the ram foot as the feet can catch on the bead retainer. However, the tool can be effectively used on these smaller rims with a spacer (BB1-SPCR) that we sell. Its a small magnetic pad that effectively shortens the feet for small rims. Damage to the tool as a result of use on these smaller rims without the spacer voids the warranty.


SPARE PARTS AVAILABLE:

Professional Mechanics

If you make your living changing tires, you NEED a BeadBuster in your tool box.  Especially if you routinely change ATV tires; often you’ll find an old dry-rotted tires that even a $3000+ Coats tire machine will struggle with it.  The problem is that all other bead breakers push down on the sidewall, not directly on the bead bundle like the BeadBuster does.  The last thing you want to do is have your shop tech fighting with a stubborn tire for a couple hours, when a BeadBuster could do the job in a couple minutes.  We know there are tricks, like putting a few psi in the tire to give the traditional bead breaker something to push against; but that doesn’t work so well when you have to do the other side, and it definitely doesn’t work when you have a ripped open sidewall from an ‘enthusiastic’ rider and the tire will no longer hold pressure!  To be sure, the XB-454 PRO is the professional mechanics answer to even the biggest problem ATV wheels.  You can also use the BeadBuster to change valve stems on motorcycle wheels in the parking lot, without ever having to take the wheel off.  There are so many ways that BeadBuster will impact your bottom line.

Military Vehicles

Every service task in the military demands the best, and most reliable tools.  The XB-450 PRO is our highest quality bead breaker because it is made of the best materials.  Whether in training scenarios, or active duty, it HAS to work…no exceptions.  The 454 PRO is the perfect compliment to any military mechanic’s field tool box.
