Ghorgan, thanks very much for taking the time to reply in such detail, much appreciated. 10mm stems though, did you enlarge the hole? Though it is 8.3mm standard.

Sorry to hear about the snow, hope it clears up quickly for you

Yes, the compressor connector side is 10mm, but I ordered the 8.3mm bases which fit the smaller hole for an inner tube.
So, I can revert to a tube.

I did reuse the black strip in the well, maybe protect the tape during tire fitting/removal.

Thanks again. 8.3 is what Iím ordering so good to confirm.

I got a 18 by 3 inch Harley Davidson rim strip for the rear from Ebay, should cover and protect the tape nicely from tire changes. 30mm is the biggest Iíve found for the front 21 though. Might just put a layer of gorilla tape.
