Dual tires

I have a dumb question, how do you get air into the inside tire?

The inside dual should have a stem extender which comes through a slot in the outer dual wheel.

You should have a valve extension for the inside tire on the opposite from the outside tire valve. If not then someone removed the extension.

It doesn't have to have an extended - they make a tire chuck with a "dual foot" that can apply air right where it is. I prefer the 180 degree "reverse' extender, though.

This is a very good question. Airing up the duallies is a dreaded task for me. To make dually life good again, I use the Crossfire (search this site or send DriVer a PM - he has used them for 6 years). I have used them for a month now and love them. About $150 and no more worries. Mine is set up exactly like DriVer did his.

Thank you! I just looked at the system on line and it's on my *to buy* list.

Check out Dually Valve stems also. These make it real easy to check/add air to the inside duals.
