    Recommend tire valve lights please.

    The ones you screw onto the presta/schraeder valve for visibility at night. I recon that a wheel shaped light is going to be instantly identifiable by a car-ist.

    There are also similar lights that just go one the spokes.

    why? get spoke reflectors, the kind that snap around the spokes..
    & there are reflective sidewall bands in good tires now..

    Cat eye makes some good spoke lights. I like active lighting, wheel reflectors are not good for all situations.
