this last bullet is a really good point. i air up all my spares like 3x a year. the spare on my truck wasnt holding air for like 4 years and i never noticed. replaced it with the cheapest thing that was black and round just so i can get home.

I hang mine with the outside portion down so I can get to the valve stem to air it up.

I've heard the argument that mounting outer-side down will lead to a valvestem being broken off when four wheeling. I find this unlikely though, at least when considering that the sidewall of the tire is likely going to be damaged in the same incident.


If someone is really that concerned about valvestem damage, then orient the tire outer-side down, with the valvestem up as close to the differential as possible. This puts the valvestem tucked well-in given the nature of departure angles.

Yea, and even the patent(er)s cant agree. In 1890 it was rolled to the back, 1891 it was rolled to the front, in 1893 they changed it again to roll to the back.
