English term or phrase: Tire Iron
Any idea what tire iron is in Lebanese Arabic (as opposed to the Egyptian "koraik" which I can't imagine is the Lebanese translation)? I'd greatly appreciate any help on this. Thanks a million.

Arabic translation:فاصل الاطار الحدیدی
Explanation:
I couldn't find an arabic word for it but I can give u a definition
Tire iron
A tire iron (tyre iron in British English) is a specialized metal tool used in working with tires that have inner tubes.
Tire irons usually come in pairs and are used to pry the edge of a tire away from the wheel it has been mounted on. After one iron has pried a portion of the tire from its wheel, it is held in position while a second iron is applied further along the tire to pry more of the tire away from the wheel. This allows enough of the tire to be separated so that the first iron can be removed, and used again on the far side of the other iron. Alternating in this way, a person can work his way all the way around the tire to fully remove it from the wheel, in order to reach the tube that sits inside.
