Being able to repair a flat at the side of the road is a need I want in a tire/wheel combination.
The VAR bead jack incorporates a tire lever for removing the tire with a bead jack to re-mount the tire in a single tool. It doesn't have the leverage of the Kool-Stop bead jack, but is more portable to carry with you on the road:

I have one of those but the separate inner tire lever is the one that broke when I tried to get a hard to mount tire off at the side of the road in order to replace the inner tube. I have since used the outer tire jack on some tires when my hand was sore - actually when my wrist was sprained.
