Looking for advice on Wheel Valve Stems


Recommended Posts

OK...I just purchased a set of Rota RB's. They will arrive in a day or two, and I am researching which valve stems to buy for the wheels. I definitely prefer the metal look (steel, chrome, aluminum) over the rubber ones, but would appreciate any insight in this area.

After a few hours of searching, I didn't come up with much, but I did learn that apparently the holes in the wheels for the stems come in two different diameters (.453 or .625) and some stems seem to slip on using a rubber gasket, while others are secured with a hex nut tightened from the inside of the wheel.

I would appreciate any advice on which hole size the RB's come with as well as personal experiences with the different types available. Perhaps even recommended venders.

Thanks in advance...
