Rays valve stems? The only way to install new valve stems is to break the bead on the tire, rip out the old ones and re-seat the bead. Any tire shop would do this for you. I've broken tires down with tire irons and it sucks having a shop do it is worth the price.

Ya rays valve stems are aluminum ones that have nuts and a washer... They don't go in like regular valve stems..

Either way the tires gotta come off all valve stems install from the back of the rim face. Bring it to a tire shop and have them install em.

Whats the problem then.....

Stick the stem in the hole, one washer outside (unless it has a rubber grommet), washer and grommet on inside, torque the **** outta them and call it good.

Dear the best way to install new rays valve stems is to replace with old ones. If you have no idea, then do not take any risk. Just go to car specialist and solved your problem. He does it against little charges.
