We put extended valve stems on the Bentley at work because we couldn't reach the OEM stems, which are recessed into the rims. Are we missing something? Are they Presta valves? LOL

They make extensions for those, too. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

And what is the logic behind recessed valve stems?

Well, if you're offroading (unlikely in a Bentley) it prevents the valve stem from being ripped off by a rock. Otherwise, it looks cleaner on many styles of rim and is less prone to little hoodlums stealing the caps for their bikes (as most of our cars have had done to them here)
