useless valve stem position December 17, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
only about a 1/4 of the valve stem protruded through the wheel. Couldn't even get in there to remove the core.

Upon dis-assembly I discovered that it was a normal 45° valve stem. However the narrowness of the wheel brought the beads of the tire so close together that there was no room for the base of the valve stem where it attached to the tube.they solve the problem by simply pushing the valve stem in until it cleared the beads leaving the quarter inch showing. Not well thought out at all.

Well, I was putting my high-pressure tires on it anyway so I switched out the tubes to the ones I used on the high-pressure tires and with a lot of grunting and groaning, managed to get the stem up out of the wheel where it belonged and took quite a while getting the tires centered on the wheels.

The wheels themselves are very nice and run true unlike most other plastic wheels I have come up against.

As far as working with the existing stem and tire beads, you are on your own. Good luck
