Where to buy angled tire valve stems locally

Anyone know where I can pick up a set of 90 or 45 degree metal valve stems near Troy area? Setting up a set of beadlocks and need to angle the valve stem to clear the back of the rim.

Murrays doesn't carry them.

A good tire place will make what you need.

Try the "mom & pop" tire places.
We had ours made at Ginman Tire Co (a private company)

I dont know a ton about angled valve stems...would they be used to bling out a gangsta whip? If they are, you might want to check out some of the hood tire places. I doubt they are in the yellow pages so if you need some names and numbers I can consult the hood for you.

Places that change heavy truck tires may have them too.

Was going to, but would like to get them today rather than wait. Found them at Blue Water Tire which deals with motorcycle tires.

Thanks
