    You guys told me I had to have a set of PR Bushwheels tundra tires for the 1/3 scale World Models Super Cub I've been building so I went ahead and ordered a pair. They weren't on the plane for more than a couple of days and I went to put air in them and pushed the air fitting into the tire. big time :(

    The guys at PR Bushwheels said to fish the fitting out with a pair of needlenose pliers but I ended up doing what I've shown it the video below. Nice product, by the way, and a nice bunch of people up there in Alaska where they're made.



    Here is the video I referred to where the guys at PR show how to make a pump for your tires.

    they suggested I use needle nose pliers to pry it out! i was done before i got started and thought, duh? why was that easier than it was supposed to be? so i then said, duh, i should make a video.
    so you're right, duh!

    mike, did my mom pay you to post that? :laughing:

    i just thought, if they're telling people to pry it out with a pair of needlenose, maybe they haven't tried it?
