Another downside of wheel pants is that if a tire goes flat on the mains you can't get the wheel pant off without first jacking up the plane because the plane will be resting on the wheel pant and the bottom screws will be inaccessible. In the case of a leaking Schrader valve it means you can't just replace the valve and charge the tire without a jack.
