These are a very important part of wheel assemblies and often do not get much thought. But a valve stem in poor condition could leak causing an inconvienent flat tyre or a ruined tyre or worse still, a sudden and dangerous blowout.
For these reasons, Megatyre always fits new rubber valve stems free of charge everytime we fit a new or second hand tyre. We do not charge for this service as we feel it is so important that we do not want any customers being tempted to opt out to save a few dollars. Some tyre shops charge $3 to $4 for this service to help cover the cost of disposing old tyres etc, Megatyre does not. The chrome finished valve stems seen in many alloy rims do not need to be replaced everytime a new tyre is fitted, but, as part of our service, we always check that the valves are secure and not leaking.
