I notice you can get special levers for carbon rims. Or are your regular plastic ones just fine? Any comments appreciated.

Yeah, sounds like a bit of marketing. Plastic are just fine.

Carbon ones, becuase if you are gonna have carbon wheels, you may as well have carbon tire levers. Do they make carbon condoms yet? You know... for the increase in stiffness.....

You may want to check the manufacturer, since it is not advisable to use any levers on the rim.

says who? Reynolds even provides you with a set of their levers to use on their carbon wheels. All that I have ever seen advised is to not use steel levers, but I believe that's more inline with them scuffing the carbon lip than anything else.

Use Pedros for all of your tire changing needs.
