Tire lever for Sun DS-2 rims

So my DS-2's laugh heartily at my pathetic Park TR-1 levers. Need bigger ones.

Other than the TR-5 which are too damn expensive in my book for chunks of metal, anyone have any other more sensibly priced recommendations?

Cheers.

These look pretty good...problem is that you have to order $50 worth of stuff from their site... maybe checking around on ebay for steel core levers is the way to go..

In my experience, steel core levers work great. Others work fine, too, although the ones that work will sometimes break. I don't like the Park levers, b/c they're too thick to fit into gaps easily and it makes them harder to use (also keeps them from breaking). Steel cores are good, unless you're trying to cut down weight of your toolkit that you use while riding.
