Valve stems

Ok, I give... I have been trying to find extentions for my valve stems on the rear inner tires. All 3 sets of the aftermarket stems I have purchased do not fit.

I need to be able to get to these stems to remove the sensor for my tire pressure monitoring system, so I can add air as needed.

Has anyone out there run into this?

I am replacing the tires tomorrow and would like to put this issue to rest.

Problem solved. I found a shop here in town (Finally) that came up with a solution. They installed longer brass valvestems which they were able to tweak 5 or so and then installed straight extentions. Here is a before and after photo. I hope this helps someone.
