    I have seen a few write ups about changing the valve seals. I would assume it is easier to do it with the head removed, but I have seen others saying they used compressed air to hold the valves in from dropping. The local machine shop says the 5V are hard to work on because they are so small...

    I have a set of 18x8 OZ Racing Vela 2 wheels which I need to find a replacement valve stem for. OZ says they were discontinued and didn't use the same valve in any other wheel. I find it hard to believe there are no valve stems any where I can use. See pics below.

    I know its not anything as bad as actually getting my car stolen, but seriously, who decides to take the caps off. Not only 1, but all 4. Its just messed up. It happened during school. I am just glad they didnt let the air out of the tires.

    I've done a bunch of searches trying to find out if any of you have replaced valve stem seals and what steps I should take to replace mine. After some research, I have concluded that my morning startup (and sometimes afternoon) exhaust smoke is a result of oil leaking through the deteriorating...

    Some S.O.B. stole 3 of my VW valve stem caps. Three? Not only is the guy a dirty low-down piece of sh*t, but he is also stupid. There are four wheels on a car. These kind of people suck. :mad: I am now debating whether or not to replace them. I don't mind paying the $15 for new ones, I...
