Get an air chuck with a double end made for duals. The end is used for inside and the end pointing back is used for outside.

I've used both, and the valve stem extenders can have their own set of potential problems. Get an air chuck and tire pressure gauge specifically designed for duallies, and you're in business.

Double-end air chuck made for duals will not work if you have the typical chrome wheel covers. For some dumb reason the wheel cover holes are not large enough and the shaft of a dual-wheel air chuck will hit the edge of the hole before you can fit the chuck on the valve stem properly.

They do have short extensions, I'm not talking about the flexible ones to reach the inside dual. These are small and solid, I've seen one that's bent back on itself to allow easy access. It's only about 1-1/2 or 2 inches long.

I think I remember Camping World carrying them at one time.

We have the chrome wheel covers and are able to use both a dual head tire guage and dual head air chuck without any proglems. As I recall, some dual headed guages and chucks are made with different angles. Perhaps the trick is to compare these dual headed products and see if the angle makes the difference.

I have a combination of dual foot angled and straight air chucks. With various wheel combinations, sometimes it's necessary to try different styles. Another suggestion for reachign the deeper schrader valves it to screw an extension pipe onto the air chuck to allow you to reach farther into the wheel.

I couldn't get a chuck matching the right hand photo and ended up bending the tube on an angled chuck to lessen the angle. With the factory angle it would catch in the wheel openinings. The chuck on my air gauge had a hanger eye on it so you could store it on a hook. I had to grind the eye off in order to make it work when I had my 95 Vectra. Some chucks also have a larger outside diameter which makes them more difficult to use when there are limited clearances involved.

Liven Larger, which tire are you having the problem with, the inner or outer dual? Your post seemed to be referring to the outer one. Is your valve stem pointing toward the inside? If so, you do need one of the angled guages/fill chucks. You should check with Myers Tire Supply or Fleet Pride. They have an assortment of tire equipment for heavy duty trucks and they should have something that will work for you.

Myers Tire Supply is where I got the chuck shown in the right side photo above.

I do use the straight portion to get the inside dual and the angled reverse portion to pull the chuck on for the outside tire.
