i would just feel better using a threaded schrader valve because the pop in ones are only rated to 60 psi

does home depot carry these schrader valves or would a auto repair shop have them like checker and autozone

Where did you hear that the pop-ins are only rated to 60?
I've never heard that. They seem like they would hold more than that.

I wonder if that is just that brand because I'm pretty sure that the ones I have didn't say that on them and the other ones like that on checker's website didn't say anything about the pressure they can hold. I'm going to look into that further to make sure that mine won't do something crazy to me

If you still want threaded shrader valve go to a tire store that sells mag wheels, mag wheels normaly allways use all metal valve stems. The accel high performce company makes good one's. You can also get them at, Pep Boys/Western Auto/Autozone/Advance Auto.

All these places have online ordering if you don't have one localy.

They make these shrader valves in different lenths. They also come with sealing gaskets, you will need them on the inside.

edit: this site has some oddball fittings that are also hard to find (10-32 threads and micro air fittings for a mini)

ooh yeah they got some hard to find fittings, most of those mini 10-32 fittings are usually found in kits for automated machinery, and cant be ordered by the piece(for example the adjustable angle, 10-32 threaded elbow with nipple, also called a banjo fitting).


or you could build a super duper mini co2 pneumatic or mini hybrid

Napa auto parts stores are ALL OVER. They sell tons of different scrhader valves and whatnot. Great store, just go to yellow pages or napaonline.com and search for a store near you. They have good prices too.

use clamp in tire valves,they are way better than snap in. They are all metal and have a snap in bulb at bottom with a tightening nut whic keeps it in place

Maybe I missed it, but did anyone suggest, say, maybe, a place that installs tires?

I'd have to guess that they just maybe have nipples!
