    It is recommended that spare tires are stowed with the valve pointed up for protection of the valve stem.
    However we all know how neglected spare tires are.
    I’d like to pass on an idea. To use the same type extension used on a duali to acces the valve on the inboard tires.
    Get the hose set from your local parts store and you can always share the second hose with any friend.
    Then you have your tire checked regularly and avoid the “my spare is flat also” syndrome.

    Smart idea, I could use both one on my Tacoma and one on the Tundra so this will work out well.

    Oh and by the way, always have a 10mm open end or combination wrench and remove it if you must use the spare.
    You don’t want this getting hit or destroyed by the brake caliper.
    And in all reality and modifications that are useful and under $15.00 is a bargain.
