I'm going to install some 90 deg angle valve stems soon.
Questions ---- do the old stems remove easily? or do I need to wait for a tire change and a qualified tech?
Thank ya's all

The old rubber stems will come out easily enough. If you can install grip puppies you'll be able to remove the stem. :D

When you install the 90 degree stems, think about where you want them located. e.g. right side, left side, (same side is always a good idea).

I angled my front one so that it's super easy to get at.

Yup, tire has to come off - wish there was a way around that cause I've never taken a tire off yet :( Sad isn't it?

@Rogdeb, Just wait until the tyres need replacing.
I was considering letting the air out, breaking the seal, and having at it. But that was just a fleeting thought :lol:
Waiting on new Avons now, so I'm taking Woody's advice :D
