Metal wheel valves

Postby M100TURBOFR » Wed 06.10.2021, 13:14

The topic of correct sizes for wheel valves doesn't appear to have been addressed. On my cars, the OZ wheel valves are longer than the BBS wheel valves. The nut on the BBS wheel valves is 11mm whereas on the OZ wheels it is 13/14 mm. Are the valve holes the same diameter on both wheel types?
Does anyone have the exact dimensions (diameter of hole for wheel valve, valve diameter, valve stem length).
And is it recommended to replace when fitting new tyres?
Thanks

I'm sure this has been discussed before. And recently I think? I seem to remember Kathryn asking the questikns, then buying something off EBay or similar then Phil coming up with the defining answer. Or something like that. I will try and find the info.

Thanks Mark. It would appear Richbrook diam 8mm is among the best choices.

Incidentally, have you seen flush fit valves? They look very neat. Don't think they would fit our alloys though????
