Default valve stems

do you have to remove the tire from the rim to replace the vavle stems?

is there any lubricate you put around it when you push it into the rim?

Yeah, you have to break the bead to install a new valve stem. There is no way around that. The way they are designed, you can only run them through from inside the rim and out. At lease if you want a usable valve stem...

Default Re: valve stems

yes they suck for 1 reason offroading and the stem hits a rock and breaks your just SOL where as the rubber one's will flex some.






they have really short styles that would help keep that problem from happening
