Crossfire installation problem

Well I bought the crossfires, trying to install them, and have run into a problem.
I have a w22chassis with 22.5 wheels and stainless steel inserts. I have installed the gauge by drilling through the stainless liner and bolting it on. Next I installed the inside dual line which went on with some difficulty, but it is on.
Next comes the problem. The outter dual attachment has a bent tube that is to be attached to the valve stem. The angle of the bent tube is too great to allow it to be screwed onto the valve stem. So, can I safely bend the tube to increase the angle for attachment, or will it compromise the system? Any help please?

You have to be careful bending the tube or valve stem. But they can be bent. Here is a picture of mine on a aluminum wheel.

crossfire

Thank you. I called the company and they said the tubes can be bent out for install. The guy I talked to said the tubes are straight to start with and they bend them 180 degrees. No problem bending back to a 45 degree angle for fitting over the stainless wheel
