My TSTTRUCK TPMS arrived yesterday. I actually called them and inquired about metal vs. rubber valve stems. They said the ones I got (model TM507SE) should work fine with rubber stems. That said I agree that metal would be better.
However, I really like the chrome stem covers idea.
How are those held in place in the wheel? Doesn't look like they screw on.
Do the wheels need to be rebalanced after installation?
