should fit fine, I drilled mine out with a step drill and am running "normal" metal type stems. (mounting like those, just not flush)

I run those flush valve stems.

They're a little more aggravating to deal with (gotta keep up with the adapter tube thingy), but not enough that I wouldn't run them again. And you will never rip a valve stem off again!

Can't put a stubby rubber stem in the hole, pull it INTO the inside of the tire and drill a new hole in a new location?

Thats what I run. I dont leave the breakaway upper stem attached. My only complaint was that the hole in the wheel isnt big enough for any of the sockets I had so I used some needle nose pliers to hold the outer nut while tightening it up.

Otherwise I've been happy with them and havent had any issues.

uh... no.

First, the stem would never stay put. They have a tiny rim to hold it in place and that would never hold under pressure.

second, the valve core would be backwards and the air would just push out.

I had those gorilla ones, I hated them.
If you do buy them, buy about 10 of those little adapters as you will lose them all.

I ran them for a few years and had good luck, these guys are right, they key is to come up with a secure place to keep the filler tube and be very particular about putting it back. I lost the filler tube in a rollover at the same time I de-beaded a tire. That sucked!

True that, I remembering some way to just turn the stem from the back side and Held the nut by wedging a screw driver between the nut and the counterbore. It was a while ago.
