An anwer to a question that nobody asked. Most stems aren't black anymore, they're usually gray or silver, as more and more cars are being equipped with TPMS.

They don't sell these to the USA probably because of TPMS -- other countries don't require TPMS so they can use them.

yeah- i know they are not practical....but sure would have loved to have them on the grand am when the ass hole kid was going around checking car doors- then getting pissed off that the doors were locked- then stomping on tire stems.......
(and yet- on just about any rim- i could see the advantage of having no stem showing at all- the aesthetics of it all)

I put Kia stem caps on mine (black and chrome logo) which I kind of like. Not only do you not really notice them, if you are looking for them I like the look.

I was wondering why the ebay ad didn't show them installed on a wheel.

Those rims look very similar to my '01 GrandAMmit GT rims:


Although, I think yours are more pimp.

Did you even scrape it off the inside of the windows above the door handles? I was just looking at mine today and was pissed that I didn't scrape mine before the tint.. only managed enough follow-through to get the "please break into me" SIRIUS sticker off first. A maids house is never clean.
