Anyone who uses these or similar deep dish rims, do you use a valve extender with standard length valve tubes (I use Michelin A4's)?

Or do you use long stem valve tubes (also available in the Michelin A4's and are they long enough?

Thanks in advance.
So let me get this straight: y'all take a big, heavy wheel and ADD MORE WEIGHT to it? Not to mention making an aero wheel less aero by sticking the valve out the hole. Uhhh, yeah.

I've had deep section wheels for years and have always used the valve extenders. Yes, they leak a little when you pump, but in all honesty how big a PITA are they really? You only really need them once in a while...

Just my opinion,
