Question Valve Stem Question - April 5, 2011, 10:24 AM

So I purchased a really nice air pump for my truck, however I can't get the air hose to fit over my valve stems since my rims are too bulky. I know I can go out and buy right angled valve stems, however I was wondering if any of you were aware of some sort of right angle adapter that I can just use some teflon tape and screw them directly on top of my valve stems?

Those 90 deg. stems come in real handy when you're trying to get pressures hot off the track. Don't know how many times I burned my damn hand.

Buying a sportbike to go the speed limit (which you do not do in your car) is like buying a condom to look at it.

Do you buy a condom to look at it? No you buy it to fuck.
