longer valve needed
« on: September 15, 2013, 06:14:52 PM »
Hi All
I have 5 spoke 17’ alloys on my fd ( not sure of the make ) and I have one of the rear tires loosing a little air thru a valve, the tire chap I generally use has only the normal short valves and he hasn’t  got the ones which I need (longer ) I use low profile tires
Where can I get the longer valve?  I tried Halfords but the one I bought is not suitable,
Regards,
MichaelB

My advise would be to try a different tyre shop Michael as tyre shops would normally have different length valves on hand for different wheel applications
All the best Clive
