    Default Valve stem protectors

    Anyone use valve stem protectors?
    I noticed they are recommended on the Farmi Winch web page for logging with tractors. Where would we get them?

    they are simply a piece of pipe or half pipe depending on who made them. but pipe from hardware store cut so just the tip of stem is out far enough to check and fill tire,will do. some coverd whole stem and had a cap but i think that would be more than you need. the pipe diemeter usally is about 1.5-2" that leaves room to replace stem if ti ever needs be,that is welded to rim.this stops a branch from hiting stem at rim and knoking it out of tire

    I will be putting them on my dk45. It is no fun to pop a stem as i found out last night while pushing brush over the hill. Glad it was the stem and not a hole in tire easier to fix.

    I broke a stem off the rear tire about a half mile back in the woods about a month ago. I was talking to the man who came out to fix it about protectors, he said to make sure to not screw it up for him if he has to ever work on the tire again. What he suggested was something like a flat bar with holes drilled to go across a couple of lug nuts which would extend to protect the valve stem. Then it could be unbolted when necessary. Haven't done it and not sure I know what I'm talking about. Anybody heard of this? $200 later, I really would like to do something. I'm not really following what the other style valve protectors are and if they are removable.

    Thanks RedDog. For some reason, I thought that they were completely round. Thanks again. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
