You might want to put some copperslip or similar on the valve threads because these tend to bind to the threads due to corrosion.
Coming to a kids bike very soon....about a day or so after you put them on your car

Agree... I had to have new valves because of corrosion! Nothing wrong with good old plastic caps...

Thanks, OP. Nice price! I've lost a cap, so will give these a punt. Good spot, heat added.
Got some that looked exactly the same from pound world, somebody nicked 2 of them so tighten with a spanner!

I had BMW logo caps and they got stuck. As soon as I got them loosened, all four were nicked.
Had them previously and they don’t react well to cold weather.. ended up the guy at garage applied some heat to get them off.. safer with plastic..

Can confirm, had to use a dremel to get them off.
Oos
Use these and you'll soon regret it - intermetallic corrosion between dissimilar metals - look cheap and nasty too!

More cheap tat getting hot on HUKD.

PS it's 'ALUMINIUM' this sode of the Atlantic!

One of mind bonded and then snapped the valve when I tried to get it off. I thought the repair would involve simply putting in a new valve but it involved a new sensor as well. Expensive. Will always stick to plastic in future

Definitely avoid these if you have TPMS.
The low price just adds to the chaviness
I was going to say I've had similar to these on my car for a year without any issues, but just went into the garage to check and found two of them welded on so just removed them all with a spanner and put the original plastic caps back on!!
I don't think I have ever noticed anybodys dust caps before, so quite happy to stick with plastic I think
Avoid at all costs. The aluminium welds its self to the brass valves.

Galvanic corrosion

AS others have said AVOID!!!!! They will ruin your tyre valves and if you have sensor valves result in a VERY expensive replacement of all four valves!!!

What about chrome caps? Are they OK?
WARNING - These will 'WELD' to your valves in a matter of weeks if not days and render your tyre valve useless! I made a similar mistake and couldn't get them off - had to cut them off and get new valves fitted - costly mistake!

You've been warned!

Possibly better but heavier. Just don't.
Never use metal valve caps...I learnt the hard way!
Yeah...had to cut mine off as well even after using a spot of grease,not worth the hassle.....100 plastic ones are around £1 on eBay lol.

Yep I had some of thses on and when it came to pumping up my tires it took me ages to get them off they were stuck, ended up putting plastic ones back on .

That's what I bought the 100 plastic ones, then when I take them off to check car pressure and forget to put them back on I have spares

Have you direct experience of this specific alloy valve? Metal valves are notorious for causing problems but the alloy valves which are used by several top manufacturers do not have this problem with their metal caps as they are alloys that do not shrink/expand/rust. Obviously you get what you pay for and I would be hesitant at this price unless it is plastic and painted to the colour stated.

I'm not sure what exact material mine were except they were metal and maybe aluminium... Nevertheless I wouldn't risk it
