Rear Outside tires will not take air.

Was checking the tires on the Thor as tomorrow it finds a new home. The rear outside tires on both sides would not take more than 72 psi. The inside rear and front air up to 85 or so. The tires in question have a bracket clipped to the wheel to hold the valve stem in place. Hit 72 psi and that's it.
Tried 4 different nozzles on the air hose, removed the clip, and even took my glasses off. Nope........nada. When you take the nozzle off the stem, you get that distinctive "pop" from air pressure. If it's something really simple or I'm being stupid, just send a message.
What say the gurus?

What compressor are you using to air them up?

craftsman. It aired up the other 4 tires from the 70's to the mid 80's. Will stop in the morning at a tire shop and let them give it a try. Thanks for the response.

"tickfarm"......Take a short extension, even a plastic one off of another car, install it and try to air it up.

It's not clear (to me) if you were able to put any air in the outside tires out if there were already at 72#. If you haven't put any air in, you mentioned a clip holding the valve stem...I assume that is an extension valve stem? If so, sounds like it may be partially unscrewed from the original stem or just faulty.

Actually, the problem tires are probably both inside since the clips are designed to hold them in place because of the extensions. They did take some air, but when they hit 72 or so, that was it. I did check the extensions and both were tight. I'm thinking maybe my 15 year old craftsman compressor may be a little light or just doesn't have enuff umpf to push air that far. Thanks for the response.
