The valve stems supplied by America’s Tire when I bought the set of 201 x 14/75R narrow WSW tires just barely protruded through our K’s wheel covers. I bought and installed the shortest set of extenders I could find, they stick out too far and are 1-1/2” oerall length. Perhaps these are !’ nominal. I searched for but could not find shorter extenders but recently saw an ad for ½” extenders at an atrocious price. In checking these lengths today, I noticed the wheel covers have started their walk—even with bumps.
Looking for wheel valve stems to fit a 300K with the original wheelcovers. Looks like they need to be at least 2 ½” long. I tried a cover on a wheel with a 2” stem and it’s just flush with the hole. I can’t find long ones except for metal ones and that’s a no no on these.
What are people using? Extenders? I assume the factory must have used ones long enough to clear the wheel cover but it’s been so long since I had my ’64 300 I don’t remember.
