Ok.. the only tire fillers I've seen or had.. have an angled tip. Both of these dumb angles can't seem to reach my nipple.. err.. /slap
I mean the air valve .. can't reach it to fill my tires up properly without scratching the wheel paint or the rotor getting in the way.

Anyone know where I can order a proper tool with a 90 degree tip.. perhaps even with a built-in pressure gauge?
thanks...

I have a air tank I bought at Wal-Mart which holds 7 gallons of air at up to 120 PSI. It has a tip that is at 90 degrees. The other option you have is to get 90 degree valve stems. I think they are available from Lockhart Phillips. My sons Ducati has them on the front tire and it makes checking pressures and adding air a breeze. I am considering getting them for my Falco when it becomes time to change tires. :cool:
