    Valve stem caps?

    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.

    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.
