    I recently bought a set of 16in. stainless steel wheel trims from a company on ebay called Sesame power windows for £82.50 and am delighted with them and would recommend them, the only thing is you will need valve extensions so you don't have to remove the trims every time to check or increase tyre pressures

    Thanks for the tip, my old ones are looking a bit tatty on the rear. Lost their sheen, fronts are OK! Think it was something a "hand wash" car wash put onto them!

    I have just put a set of these on the van, they look nice, think I paid £220 ish http://www.parmagroup.co.uk/Product...inter-iveco-daily-ford-transit-trims-for-vans#.

    They are the next best thing I found to Euroliners who no longer exist.

    I could not find a way to make valve extenders look good hanging through the hole in the trim. So I fixed them with a bracket inside the wheel trim on the steel wheel (I have twin rear wheels), now I am adding the TypePal monitoring system so I only have to remove them when required.

    Not ideal but the best solution I could find.

    The trims I have are for single rear wheels only, the valve extensions don't need to be on all the time but only when required to check or inflate tyres

    If you drill the drill the wheel trim the valve extender can come through the face of the trim, then you can use a flow through tyre pal in between two flexible valve extender pipes.
