Anyone running tubeless valves cut out of old inner tubes ? Talking about fully threaded ones with removable cores. My current valves are not long enough I could buy them however when inner tubes are somewhat cheaper, just wonder if its viable ?

Unlikely you'll get a decent seal unless the pressure is very low, even then.

It’s a thing - I haven’t done it myself but I know it is done. You can also cut the inner tube down so you have an inner continuous belt of rubber with the valve in.

I think all tubeless valves have removable cores, which means you can use valve extenders with them.

Yep I know all that ! I`ve just bought a new set of tubeless wheels and realised I need longer valves. I`ve ordered from Amazon. LBS had none to suit !!
