Valve Stems for Aluminum wheels.

This is probably a silly question, but do you guys use any special valve stems when using aftermarket aluminum wheels. I really never noticed what is being used.
I know you can get aluminum caps for the valve stems to give them a little bling.

I bought chromed ones with my Crager's from Summit, maybe check their website, they may have other types, I'm not sure.

Re: Valve Stems for Aluminum wheels.

Berry251: Bling Bling is a term used by the younger generation, mainly rap artists and fans to describe the gold chains and shiny jewelry that they all wear. It is used ALOT, and I am surprised that you haven't heard the term!
Thanks guys for the recommendations. I went to a Goodyear dealer and they had the regular valve stems with a chrome stem and cap. I will probably go with those.
