worst luck ever :(

while putting air in my front passenger tire at the gas station, the nozzle ripped the valve out of my valve stem (keep in mind this happened on a sunday night at 9pm). with no way to fix it i screwed the cap on as tight as it would go and then wrapped some electrical tape around it. If this works then i will have successfully redneck fixed yet another thing in my life

Do you have rims?
I would just put my spare on till then in case it goes down it doesn't destroy your rim

Re: worst luck ever :(

im happy to report that by putting the cap on the valve stem (as tight as it will go) and wrapping electrical tape around it stopped the leak
