I'm finding the length/angle of the valve stem combined with the hubcap design to be really awkward. Getting the cap off takes along time. You can only turn it about 20 degrees at a time. It's also awkward using a pressure gauge because the hubcap opening interferes with it. One simple solution would be extending the stem about 1.5 inches (40 mm).
The current setup makes me consider removing the hubcaps altogether. So far (22,000 km) this is the only complaint about the car.
