I use the single sided bead breaker and tire tongs.  I’ve gotten good at getting the tire over the rim by hand.  Usually at the track we have two bead breakers, so we set up one for the front rims and the other for rears.


I’ve also used the tire whiz.  It works fine, but the tongs are easier and can be used to get the bead over the rim for mounting if you want.  I’ve never used any of the other tools.  I’ve never been able to justify the additional costs to myself :)
