    Hi,

    I had to pull into a tyre repair shop on the way home yesterday as I had a slow puncture and they found that the metal valve fitted to my Alloy wheel was leaking but they didn't have any so they fitted a rubber one in its place and told me it would get me home,

    However I have been ringing around our local tyre repair shops and none of them appear to stock the metal ones most of them said if I had the new valve they would fit it, so my question is can anyone tell me where I can purchase a metal tyre valve

    any suggestions would be helpful,

    Thanks

    Big Tyre outlets such as ATS and the like may stock them, or alloy wheel specialists, there not a popular fitting and expensive so the smaller outfits wont have em there are some HERE if your stuck and chrome ones from the same seller

    They are common on hgv trucks so I would find a commercial vehicle tyre shop in your area
