I use the same ones that JTB uses. Work well and seem like solid pieces. I did have to grind a slight bevel on the nut for the front rim for it to seal however, SG wheels front & back so I'm not sure what was up with that. It appears to be holding up just fine though.

I know this is a month old... I'm ordering a set of Kurvey Girl angled valve stems... Is there any tricks to install these? or simply push them in the rim and tighten to torque specs? should you use loctite? Does it matter which direction the stem is pointed?

Definitely point them toward the right side. Otherwise, when you're on the kickstand they'd be pointing down toward the ground.

I was thinking I would get 90* stems whenever it was time for tires. But...., I bought the extension hose at the HD dealer, it is about 6-8 inches long. Does a fine job. I won't be needing 90* stems.

and don't point them at a 90" angle from the wheel, meaning don't point them directly at the brake rotor.

Why not? Not sure it makes a difference. Didn't day anything about it in the installation instructions. Have you had an issue with this?

the brake rotor will get in the way when you are trying to put air in it.

I'm going to be installing my new wheels and tires this weekend with the Kurvey girl valve stems.. Did you guys have any issues in pointing the angled valve stem at 90 degrees? I want to make sure they won't hit the caliper or anything else for that matter..
