    Hi.
    Have BBS RSIIís and the bolt that is also the air valve is stripped. I canít get it out for the life of me. The kicker is I just had the wheel refinished and donít want to go scratching it all up!

    I have a new air valve bolt- can anyone get this out for me?
    (I believe itís titanium if that matters)

    I see, there is a couple of things you could try. You can drill and use a bolt extractor carefully without scratching the wheels or you can JB weld a spare Allen key to it and once it hardens you remove it by hand or use a pair of pliers.

    Gave up and had a wheel Guy do it.
    Looks like extractor worked.
    Not a scratch!
