Valve Stems

Valve stems are required with every wheel and tire combination. When replacing only the tires or wheels, we highly recommend that the valve stems be replaced. If you choose not to purchase valve stems, simply select "Remove From Cart".

A Few Things to Consider
  • Valve stems are responsible for keeping your tires inflated, and allow you to add or subtract air pressure.
  • The diameter of passenger car and light truck valve stems is a standard size that fits virtually every wheel.
  • Valve stems come in both rubber and metal varieties. The valves we provide are rubber with a protective chrome sleeve and metal cap.
  • A common myth is that the valve stems never need replacing. The rubber in your valve stems dries and cracks in the same way that your tires do. Valve stems should be replaced at least as often as your tires.
