    Wheeleez Balloon wheel valve stem broken

    I have broken valve stems on 2 of my wheeleez Balloon tires. I can only found instructions on replacing the valve core but my entire stem is snapped. Has anyone repaired these by using generic valve stems? Can I pull these tires off their rims?

    Found this. I'm going to take the tire off tomorrow and see if a local bike shop can help out

    Update: Just spoke to Wheeleez and I come to find out the valve stems are actually molded into the tire. Not good news at all, especially at $108 per tire just to replace. I still want to try a bike shop and see if i can just cut the broken valve stem out carefully, find one large enough to fit tightly and then use something strong to seal...myabe 5200? Anyone have any ideas?

    Found these 2 piece valve stems. Hopefully i can remove the old one and instlal these with some 5200 sandwhiched in between.
