Does the MM of a Presta valve matter?

The 48 or 42 mm length listed below is the length of the presta stem. You just need 12-15mm of stem to stick beyond the rim so you can get a pump onto it, though, for some people, a little extra length isn’t a bother. If you’ve got a deep rim, you’ll need a longer valve stem.

The Presta valve hole is 7mm in diameter, and the Schrader valve hole, 8.5 to 9mm. Presta inner tubes may be used in rims that are drilled for Schrader or Woods valves, though it is advisable to install a rubber grommet in the valve hole.
