Re: Angled valve stem
As mentioned above, you will have to file the ridge off the rim where the "new" valve stem will go. The area needs to be flat. Even better to make the very slight rounded area flat after you remove the ridge. Wunderlich sells these too and mentions problems with rims.
The ridge will cant the stem and the parts inside will not be flat enough to seal well. Or If balanced on the ridge they can slide off and they you loose your seal.
