There is no valve sticking out...that's the difference, they're flush with the wheel.

They can't be nicked, unlike the cheap looking chrome/metal ones people buy.

Valves are valves, I'm not the one bothered about them in this thread but other people seem to be.

I'd be more concerned with other 'proper' issues than what colour my dust caps are lol

Mine came with the wheels... not my fault i had metal ones.... lol not like i asked borbet to put their silver valve caps on their own wheels lol.

Anyway getting a bit heated now in this thread!

stubby ones do sound appealing if my new valve caps get nicked again...

I'll bare them in mind next time... =)

What if youi know how to maintain a car and it has no 'PROPER' issues? Money is better spent on subtle car mods than mcdonalds or beer?

They also mean when your in the pub your so called mate's can't loose your tyres down and make you have to change a space-saver at 12:30am in the rain.....

Besides, what happened too personal preference?

Re: Some c*ck keeps nicking my dustcaps!!!

At half twelve in the morning in the rain your not gonna pump up your tire from flat with a compressor when your not even sure it will hold. For all I knew it was flat because of a puncture, until I pumped it when I got home and it never went down again........

best bet would be to get them valves witch sit snug in the alloy so the cap is flat with the rim.hey wont get hold of them.

Re: Someone keeps nicking my dustcaps!!!

If all else fails coat the new caps in a touch and die biotoxin.
(it worked in the bond movie)
At least you will have the pleasure of stepping over the bazza when you next get in the car.

Just remember to wear gloves next time you check pressures
