I've been learning tyre taps and I have been snapping spokes sad just wanted to know if you have a straight wheel is it less likely you will snap spokes?? Or a way that will help me

thanks Emilio

Sounds to me like you are going sideways when your wheel lands.

If your spokes are too tight they could snap.

Try going up and coming down into the tire tap rather than sideways into it.

Again, I am speculating. If you can post a video of you doing it, we can better advise you.
