H1 Valve Stems

I am already running small angled valve stems in the outer half of the beadloack and they seem to leak down due to the curve on the inside of the lip.

Anyways, I am planning on moving them to the inner shell and am looking to buy a set of 45 degree angled stems that are about 4-5" long. Like a dumbass I have a wide rock ring installed making things tough to air up and or down. I am wanting these to be easy enough to access and use with my Currie quick tire deflator.

Anyone know where I can get these locally? (SW Houston area) Or what auto parts stores may have them? Napa, Vatozone, Advance, Oreillys, etc all have the small rubber ones that wont work. Im going to try discount tire tomorrow to see if they have something that may work and on the way home today, i plan on stopping by a big rig tire repair place as well as Peterbilt in Sealy to see if they have any long(er) brass ones.

They can be bolt on valves instead of the pull through rubber ones, but have to set pretty flush to the inside of the rim or it will interfere with the inner beadlock.

Saw those but I needed something longer. Went to Napa on Friday and found some in their catalog. They cam ein on Saturday and worked great.
Knocked a few things out this weekend. Rebuilt the H1s with new valve stems and a fresh coat of paint.
Ordered a set of brass valve stems from Napa and bent them in the vise to the desired angle.

Came out pretty good once assembled. Much easier to access and now I can use my Currie EZ Deflator instead of a screwdriver to air down.

Pretty blue paint.
