How to fill air pressure on LMGT2 alloys?

Sounds like a stupid question to ask,but i've recently fitted some Nismo LMGT2 wheel's to my R34.
The front two tyres need air,i've already been to a machine to fill some air,however the valve on the tyre appears to not "stick" out as much,so when i put the inflater next to it,it didn't cover it enough to allow me to put air into the tyre,but yet was letting air out of the tyre by pushing in the pin on the alloy.

Such a noob and retarted question to ask,i've taken turbo's on and off a GTR,amongst other stuff but yet a simple thing like this is causing me issues!

Not gone to a tyre shop yet as my local and usual one is closed on sundays and I don't want to go anywhere else.

Is there anything that I can do in the meantime or just have to wait it out?

I await the LOL comments and abuse that i'll get lol

You could use a valve extension such as this...
Flexible Rubber Tyre Valve Extensions
Depending on how quickly you need them, it might just be worth going to tyre place and getting them to replace current valves with longer ones!
