BV-04 Bead Vice
Gaither’s Bead Vice is a patented product that was designed to accommodate the new EVA wheels that first appeared in Europe several years ago. The trend in Europe, and recently throughout the world, has been to move towards using disc brakes on all large commercial vehicles. These disc brakes require a special wheel assembly that allows for more cooling and protection for the valve stem. These wheels are referred to as the EVA (external valve assembly) or Hump wheels. To protect the valve stem, a hump was built just inside the flange of the wheel making it impossible to break the bead loose from the wheel, and therefore dismounting the tire without the help of the Bead Vice. The patented Bead Vice quickly and safely breaks the bead free on all new EVA wheels.
Bead Vice V-04 Includes:
1 Bead Vice and 1 gallon (3.8 liter) of Super Slick'em with applicator bottle
How The Bead Vice BV-04 Works
Simply apply Super Slick’em between the tire and wheel before deflating. After the tire is completely deflated, attach the Bead Vice to a stud hole on the wheel, and turn the bolt with a 32mm socket until the base plate forces the tire down past the hump of the wheel.
How The Bead Vice BV-04 Works With The Adaptor
The Bead Vice Adaptor (BVA-3) is also available for those wheels that have the hump on both sides, therefore requiring both heads to be pushed down before being dismounted. The Bead Vice Adaptor allows the Bead Vice to be used on all sized truck tires, including 17.5in. and 19.5in.
