Valve Stems

Is it normal to have the outside dual tire with the valve stem turned in so that it is pointing to the other dual tire? I understand having it out of the way but why not just straight up? I am trying to add TPMS which is almost impossible with this arrangement.
Thanx!

Just slightly loosen the nut at the bottom and swing it to where you want it and tighten. Believe it is pointed in to protect it.

I say it was a screw up if you loosen and turn it be careful its a lot of air pressure and when your done check it good for leaks.

Not a screw up. This is how an experienced large chassis tire and wheel shop will install valve stems.

Exactly. You just need a crows foot tire gauge. On trucks the inner and outer duals are interchangeable. Same wheel, just turned around. In fact so is the front tire (usually).
Since we have two different tire sizes our is not set up to do that. Our front and tag are the same wheel and tire, the drive are different.

I could see having them turned around if your getting in mud or somewhere that something could hit them. Looks like it would be tuff putting sensors or valve stem caps on like that.

If you turn the stem in the picture around you will not have access to it when the wheel is installed on the front and it will interfere/rub the the brake drum/rotor when turned to position it on the inner rear position on most set ups.

Kaputnick:
If you do a google search, you will find that most of the Freightliner chassis are delivered that way. It is really simple to do and there is no risk of air loss changing the position. Loosen the nut until you can turn it - likely just a little over half a turn. Be sure that the valve points towards the rear during forward motion then tighten it up. You can take it to a truck tire or freightliner location but try one side and i am sure you will be amazed at how easy it is. I will admit that i had the same concerns and reluctance but this forum convinced me to try. Good luck,

Good discussion and I appreciate the feedback, stem is too long to turn past the hub. After I visit the local tire shop I will update the pic.

The valve stems on my dually are the same way so you can use the wheel at any position. What really irks me is when the tire shop doesn't take time to put both inside and outside valve stems together. You have to feel around in each hole to find the inside one.

That would be irritating. They should install them 180 degrees off one another. Always know which hole the inner dual is that way.
