    Front end looked a little low on the new tires. It has been sitting for a month on the cold concrete in a garage. Went to put air in the tires and could not find the valve stems.
    They come out of the rim in the middle of the wheel. No way to reach between the spokes and fill'er up. I've seen truck tires have a similar problem and have seen long angled extensions to the stem.
    Can't see "rediscovering the wheel" so thought I'd ask the question here on the forum. Who makes the best valve stem extensions for this purpose. Please don't tell me ...Macy's....I live in the middle of the
    Ozarks and bubba, he don't know where Macy's is. I thought about jacking the car up and filling them from underneath. With the lowering kit, I have only 2 1/2" clearance and my jack starts at 2 3/4".
    Any particular site I can go to? Thank you Maybe all I need is a smaller jack.
