valve stems..

Postby toytuff » Wed Oct 31, 2012 7:50 am

Greetings,

Anybody know the size of the valve stems? I'm thinking 11 mm but not sure.

Just had some new tires mounted and both leak slowly. I'm thinking wrong size stems however no air bubbles when I spray water on them.

Front worse than rear. Dang, I didn't want to take them off again! :angry-banghead:

If those are the problem I'll order up some angled stems.

i'd be curious to know the answer on this as well. especially for the pro-links. mine leak very slowly as above (rear) and are a pain to get into with the straight stems!

thanks

My front leaks 4 to 6 pounds overnight! Guess I'll remove and put in the bath tub. :laughing-rolling:

I think these will work but not sure if the stem is the culprit. I don't see any bubbles when I spray water on it.

TT,
Mix up a solution of soapy water in a spray bottle and apply it liberally to the rim, valve stem, and tire.
Your leak will quickly become apparent.
