Valve Stems are not compatible with TPMS sensors.
Bad first, If you have valve stem type TPMS sensors, these will not work for you (DUH)..... But if you have the band style sensors these are the way to go. I just installed these on my new Shelby series ... wheels from AM. My wheels are Gloss black at the location of the valve stems.(at the suggestion of my tire tech) I used gloss black fingernail polish to colorize the dust cap.They blend in so well they give the appearance of MAGIC wheels/tires.14mm wrench to install.They are a VERY nice addition to any wheel. If you have nitrogen filled tires you will not have to check tire pressure but once every 3 months or so. On any wheel I own from now on that EVER needs a valve stem replaced, these are whats going to be on my vehicles. Never seen these before,TYVM AM for having these available to everyone.....

Clean and Cool
If you are worried about losing the little nipple that comes with this kit to check/alter tire pressure then don't get these. However, if you want the cleanest, coolest look ever on your custom wheel tire combo you've GOTTA get these!

Tired of rubber valve-stems tearing, but not wanting the often ugly metal stems, I chose this kit when I ordered some new rims. Fit perfectly, no leaks, and the stemless-caps work great. Comes with an extra set of caps, in case you lose one, which is very awesome. Wish it came with an extra valve-stem piece (you only get the one) but can't complain. Though most people already keep some form of tools in their 'Stang at all times, you do need a wide flat-tipped tool to work the covers. The valve-stem can be added and removed (during pressure checks and filling) by hand without problems (doesn't require you to wrench it on to get a good seal). Two cons, one aesthetic and one functional. Aesthetically it'd be nice if AM offered the black version of this kit as well. My rims are black and I'm going to paint the caps with a black enamel so they don't don't stick out visually. The caps are also a bit soft, so be careful with whatever tool you use to work them. Functionally the valves themselves, and the caps, are awesome. The valve-stem piece, though, is a bit quirky. It's essentially a threaded tube with a captured pin inside it, which your tire pressure tool or filler pushes on, which in turn pushes on the actual valve pin. The problem is that if the stem is attached while the valve is in a high position, the stem will be angled downwards, and this causes the captured pin to slide out a little. It won't fall out, but you kinda have to hold it in before you get your tool on, else the pin won't push the valve. Very touchy and the tolerances are a bit too thin. Just getting a reading can be an exercise in trial-and-error. Fortunately a good nitrogen fill means far-fewer fills.

Flush Mount Valve Stems
Provides a much cleaner and "cooler" look than having those rubber stems sticking out of the rims. Also recommend you put the wheel weights in the behind the face of the rim; again provides a much cleaner look. Very good!!!

Perfect finishing touch!
Put the flush mount valve stems on my 18" chrome Bullitt replica wheels. These stems make the wheel look flawless, no more eyesore black stem sticking out of the wheel. Would recommend these with any wheel, aftermarket or factory!

Flush mount valve stems
I am very pleased with the Flush Mount Valve Stems. I have positives and negatives with them. Positive: 1. With the flush mount there are very sleek. 2. easy to install. 3. no worries of valve stem caps being stolen. 4. easily paintable caps to match your rim color. Negatives: There is only one valve stem adaptor. 2. I could not find replacement adaptors (my wife had no idea what it was and it ended up being placed in an obscure drawer in the house.) 3. if not real careful when attaching the adaptor the o-ring will blow out when filling the tire. It's not a real problem, Just losen the adaptor and then retighten and everything will be ok.

Awesome custom finish
These Flush Mount Valve Stems look great! I have them on my Cobra R Rims and they just complete the look. They look much better than regular valve stems that stick out.

Great finishing touch to FR500 wheels
If your gonna spend the money on wheels, add these for an awesome custom finish. AM mounted my wheels and installs th flush valves at no extra cost. I matched the color with fingernail polish. Great finishing touch. Thanks AM for another quality product and outstanding customer service.

Excellent style for any wheel design. So many conversations have sparked as to where to get them and how an awesome design they are. I recommend these! Much better than a rubber or steel valve sticking out of the rim. Installation is as easy as any other valve stem if chosen to do so yourself before tire installation.

I purchased these in combination with a set of 18" Black Foose Wheels & Nitto tires for my 2005 mustang. This combination has a very agresssive and clean look. American Muscle included my wheel mount & balance, free nitrogen and installation of these flush mount valve stems at no additional charge and they arrived on schedule & ready to roll! Thanks A-M!!
