HI, I finally started putting together my tires and wheels and after I bolted together one wheel and tire and I was on my second one I realized that in the runflat that there was what lloked like a place and hole for the air valve now I've heard conflicting things on whether it's important for it to be properly lined up with that or not so before I go and take the first one apart to fix something that may or may not be a problem is it? Does the air valve need to line up to the space on the run flat? Thanks for any help.

When i did my lmtv wheels, even though i rmvd the run flats out of the few that had them, they were lined up with the valve stem. A couple 14R20s on combat wheels had R/F in them and they too were lined up. It might not matter, but its only 1 tire a d if by chance it does make a diff, then its already done and the rest can be put together. Its better to have and not need, than to need and not have.

Thanks for the response now that I've had a few hours away from it I've been thinking I may just rip it apart tomorrow and fix it. Hell, I've already done 6 of them the right way might as well fix the seventh at this point. As you said it's better to be prepared than not.

I've heard conflicting things on whether it's important for it to be properly lined up with that or not ...........
All RFs have channels and/or holes and are designed to never block the air valve, no matter what position.
I would leave that first wheel as is.
