Stubby valve stems

Post by Jembo » Wed Jun 27, 2012 12:49 pm

Bing noticed my version of stubbies I had on my alloys at the Sussex meet & asked how I managed to get any air in, so remembered the other night to take a couple of photos even if the wheels are a little grubby...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but there is something slightly obstetric or gynaecological about your pics. It might be me but...............

Yeah my old wheels had short valve stems, I was always worried about scratching the rim when topping up air...
