Hi all,

Just wanted to share this little trick on how to make our large silver colored valve stems black to match black rims and not stand out.

Heat Shrink - 1.2" diameter. Just cut to length, hit it with a heat gun and your all set. Quick and easy. It was actually even cheaper to order a heat shrink assortment kit off of Amazon than just the 1/2-in alone and I got way more sizes for if I ever need them.

Hope it helps. Happy motoring (lol)

So simple and I’ve even used shrink tubing before and not once thought of this. Thanks for the tip!

Oh wow, that's a great idea! Thanks for sharing it. I was considering getting mine replaced all together. Now I don't need to.

The BEST reason for this is salt brine likes to mess these up and break off when its tire change time................
