So, I have a compressor for 'end of trail' refills on my tires.
I was on a run a while back and saw some of the guys had these valve stem covers that were real easy to work with on deflation. I seem to recall, they just twisted them and they started the deflate, twist them again when you're done.
Any idea where I might get a set of these? Did I imagine it?
I got the pump from Harbour Freight so hopefully, it will serve my needs!
I will find out Saturday on the 40's only run, I guess!
Thanks

You could spring for Stauns, which I have, but I use the cheapo terraflex ones all the time. I would recommend the terraflex ones.

I have these on my 40 and I love them! I also have short rubber ones on the same wheel that I put the pressure gauge on.

These are much cheaper and work pretty good for what they are...

I have the Stauns, but I really dig this little guy:

It may be what I get for the 40.

That what I use in my 80....I really like it! I should have an extra one I had in my 40 with the previous wheels if you wanna try before you buy.

I have the ARB deflator that removes the valve core while the special gauge thing is screwed onto the stem. Works well

Thanks for all the responses. I will try and get down to the 4 Wheel parts store this week.
Hope to see some of you on Saturday!
