All Alcoa® wheels come with a factory fitted valves, although factory fitted valves for replacements are available where needed.
All new valves are nickel plated and come with a nickel plated dome type dust cap that includes a seal for 100% airtightness.
It is advised that the valves are changed every time tyres are changed. This should be done using VALVEgrease For Alcoa®* Wheels to lubricate the valve and valve hole area in order to prevent corrosion around the valve hole which can lead to air loss.
