Still waiting to get the ground effects installed, but looks like it will be springtime now. So found these! Put them on the aftermarket wheel valve stems that I have and I believe the car is now quicker!

Ahhh...
Winter is a slow time for talk about convertables.
I'm not going to respond to this post!

Nice, do they come in blue? Lol! If I get these I won't need my turbo anymore.

I think that anytime you take an awesome car and add more awesomeness, for only $3, by default it adds 2 HP!

i have always wondered... anyone ever have issues with these aluminium/metal type valve caps binding to the valve stem? I always figured the standard plastic ones were a better bet as they would never get stuck.

I never have. My ssr's have matching metal valve caps, and they had been on there for around 5 years. My car is garaged when it isn't driven though.

Doesn't surprise me. Put some bullet casing ones on my Enkei's and it felt like the car had received a shot of adrenalin when I pulled out of the driveway. Who wuda thought. :eek:

I stick with the cheapo plastic valve caps. I don't feel bad if I lose one and are quickly replaced.

I did do a little weight reduction to my car today while it's nestled in the garage. I thoroughly vacuumed and cleaned the interior. I took the seats out as it's amazing how dirty the carpet gets under there.

I've had them seize up. Happened on my old pickup... Was finally able to get 3 of them off... sold the truck with the 4th still on it. Makes sense when I thought about it. Cold temps, brass valve stem, steel valve stem cover, some moisture....
