Does anyone have any spare stem caps (bmw logo or lettering) for sale? Or if you want to be nice to me, you can hand them over for free :)

I'm missing one, two are metal, and the 3rd is black plastic. I had 3 flat tires last month and i'm guessing my uniform caps "walked away" when tires were being replaced. Thanks!

I think I have a set that I don't want ... I'll have to check the toolbox tonight.

However, running without valve stem caps is a weight reduction technique. :biggrin:

I used to buy them from BavAuto, but the kids in my neighborhood kept stealing them to put on their bikes...

This is my biggest fear...NEXT to getting 3 flat tires in one month. I would buy them, but I figured I'd solicit this group first.

Thanks mcoupemindy! Please let me know. BTW, I'll be at the Ladies DIY session this Saturday 8/15 if anyone has them or I can pick them up from you.

No worries. Thank you, Jonathon, for checking. I appreciated it.
