Its only 17 miles and no sales tax. This local Les Schwab has gone crazy with their pricing they are loosing allot of business with locals driving to Ontario Or because of the new pricing.

If you are going to take it to the tire store to have them balanced, why not just get the correct valve stems installed at the same time?

My eezrv tpms sensors are on rubber stems. I have checked them a few times and see no issues. However, I didn't think of the metal covers and will add them this week until I get new tires.

I think the covers are chrome plastic, I don't want to spend anymore on these tires and rims as I'm going to change before next season and may go to 15" tires so that I can get an E range tire. I'll give the rubber with chrome covers a try if they don't work I'll change.

Fair enough. As I said, I'm gonna do the same thing except I'm not going to balance mine. If I were to take them to get balanced, I would get new stems. I guess I could pull them off and put them on the bubble balancer at home, but don't see the need.

I think it depends on which sensors you purchase.
If you get the flow through, they stick out farther and are heavier.
Probably not good for rubber stems.

If you get the non-flow through and remove the anti-theft covers, they hardly stick out and the weight is negligible. That's what I have done and I also have the chrome stem covers. I've got about 4000 miles on them with no signs of distress. I have periodically looked under the chrome cover to see if the stem is stressing and see no difference from the day the TPMS was installed.

I never rebalanced either.
