Now I need to know what angle valve extension to buy for the outside rear wheels so I don't have to remove the covers every time I check the air?
I took mine down to a local tire store. And had permanent extentions installed. Basically, they removed the tires and the old stem, and replaced the stem with a much longer version with a slight curve to it so I can easily adjust the air.
One of the guys that was there was an EMT and said the city does not use the extentions because they have a tendency to leak. So all EMT vehicles use these longer stems instead of extentions.
Cost me $60 for both tires. I like it better, they are more rigid instead of flexible, which is easier to put a tire gauge. The extentions are floppy and sometimes requires both hands to check or put air in the tire.
