    So after a jolly jaunt looks like some debris tried to guillotine my valve stem. It's not a TRD TPMS one, those are still in my TRD rims; I just have regular rubber stems on my Konigs. Looking at them and searching on the next and what not it seems a simple case of deflating the tire, removing it off the truck, pushing the bead down, pulling the stem out and replacing it with a new one and doing the reverse order and refill the tire.

    Is this correct?

    Pretty much. You can break the bead with your hi-lift under the weight of your truck.

    Once you get it in you can reseat the bead with your compressor. If it won't seat try an blow gun attachment and no valve stem core. If that wont' do it, use a ratchet strap around the center tread of the tire and tighten it up a bit.

    Then theres always a tiny amount of ether.

    If you bought tires at a local shop could always take back to them and I'm sure they'll do this all for free.

    the steps you outline are exactly correct....The problem will be with 'breaking' the bead. I doubt you will just be able to push the tire down. If you have another vehicle to drive...the easiest is to run it down to a shop and have them break the bead and put the new stem in.

    I've got some gin I could spare. Some for me...some for the truck...

    It's been like a 1½ years since I bought them. Kinda want to do this myself so if it happens out in the great wild I can DIY.

    I'll set the back axle on jacks then use the hi-lift like maxamillion said to break it off. Seems like it would be easiest. First I need to go buy some stem replacements.
