So what do you think the chances are that:

Every single time I think to check my air pressure, or even look at my rear wheels, not one but BOTH tire valves are up under the skirts?

About 1/2 of the wheel is showing, so probability would dictate that nearly all the time, at least one valve should be below the skirt. But OHHHH NOOOOOO, not for me!

No your absolutely right, I can only recall like maybe twice when both valve stems were exposed. What I try to do is check the pressure when washing the car, because I usually have the skirts off for this anyways. That way it doesn't matter where they are.
Ok yesterday made me think about this post. I recently had a new set of OEM tires put on my car at Costco which came with a free road hazard warranty. Well I picked up a nail in one tire so I took it in no bid deal. Well I was about to drive across town but as I started out I could tell there was something that just wasn't quite right about the car so I decided to stop at home first. I knew it had to be that they deflated my tires.

First one I checked was the front left which had the nail in it, and yep sure thing 35 psi. I check the front right one it's at 32 so then I assume all 4 have been "rechecked". I happen to have my right rear valve stem showing and it too is at 35 psi. So then I go for the left rear and the valve stem wasn't showing so I pushed the car back until it was. This one was left alone and still had the 50psi I put in it two days before. So they obviously had the same valve stem not showing that I did when I got it home.

I knew somethign wasn't right, but I guess 15psi inflation difference between different tires will do that.
