Variety of sizes for the money
Good price for three irons. Could use one more large one though.

The kit to get!
This is an amazing kit. 3 irons help ease the removal or install of a tire. The black curved one does the muscle work!!

As straight forward as it gets.
Besides the fact that the finish on the black lever came off, the irons work perfectly. I managed to pull crusty old cruiser tires off without bloody knuckles. Motion pro makes a good set, and I say buy them.

Overall as advertised
Adequate for the job. I got the assorted set as I was nervous on changing a larger rear tire than I had previously (F800GS.) The largest iron definitely gives one the potential to use waaaay too much torque as you are manhandling your rim. I ended up pinching a tube, thus getting to use the irons more than anticipated. I now refrain from using the large iron and do not carry it when on a long trip.

The long bar is the best component of the set
Some dirt tires are a bear to install. You need a lot of leverage and the longest bar (16 inch) in the set really helps. The short bar isn't very useful. I'd like to see 2-11" bars instead. Be careful if you have aluminum rims, as the bars can easily nick, scratch and gouge if you're not careful....even if you are careful.

Tire Irons for the road and shop
This set is a good deal. Zip tie to your ride for an emergency or use them in a premeditated fashion when you get knew tires.

Get the job done
I used these for my first time changing tires and I'm glad that I had all 3 tire irons that came in the kit. I used the 16 inch one the most, for prying the tire off the bead and then used the smaller ones to hold the tire off the rim. If had more practice changing tires, maybe I could have done it with just 2 tire irons, but for my first time, I was glad that I had all three. A great deal as the 3 piece kit is cheaper than buying the 16 inch iron, plus the set of 2 shorter ones.
As a side note, I did this without a bead breaker; I just tried using some big clamps that I had. Bad idea, next time, I'm using a real bead breaker.
My only complaints are that the 16 inch tire iron is really susceptible to rusting and the smaller ones will bend a little if you push too hard on them. But nothing that a little scotchbrite pad and some WD-40 can't fix.
