What: Swap the standard long tyre valve stems for stubby ones, with metal valve caps.
Extra power ATW: unknown ;)
Bling factor: I think they look much more elegant than the long ones.
Who did it: Stuckey Tyre Service, Brunswick, Victoria.
How long did it take: About 30 minutes
Cost: About $10 per wheel.

No, you wouldn't have any problem, on my wheels at least. :D
(Well my electronic guage has a nice long stem on it, I'll check if a mechanical "pencil" style guage fits.)

I don't think my local BP gauge would fit. It's hard enough to get the bloody things on now.
