Stupid Question

I have 20" ATX rims with the 37" toyo tires on them. Noticed one tire was a little low. Found it had a valve stem that was leaking. Question is what size valve stem do I need to get and can I replace it without taking the tire off? One last thing, I was reading that there are high pressure valve stems that are part metal, but mine are completely rubber. Is that maybe why they failed early?

Thanks,

David

Valve stems are installed from the inside of the wheel so you can't replace them with the tire on.

If it is just leaking from the center of the valve stem and not the actual rubber itself, then you can just remove the valve out of the stem and replace that in 30 seconds!

Thanks for the replies. Honestly I had no idea you could replace the innards of those things. I'm going to pick up the tool and a few of the cores for the next time it happens.
