    Who all uses them? Pros? Cons?

    I like the look of the short ones...just appears cleaner. I don't think access to the stem with an air hose will be an issue if I use them on my AR TT II's.

    My forgelines have bolt in valve stems. I like them. Didn’t replace them when I swapped the tires, no issues

    I use them on my Vintage Wheel Works rims. No problems.

    The only con I've ever heard is they can break if there is an impact where the rubber ones would flex. That said I've run them a bunch and never had an issue.

    I use them on pretty much every thing, never had a problem. had a set way back when that the stem could unscrew and you only had a small "button" showing.

    They are usually rated for higher pressures also.

    Has anyone seen the bolt on valve stems that would work with late model tpms senors such as the late model GM sensors?
