Are these dumb?

Are these dumb? I read that they can corrode and fuse to the stem but I also check my tire pressure weekly and it's about to be spring so don't expect anymore salt and snow. I kept the oem caps.

    lol, where ever you read that is moronic, and so are you for believing it
    those valve stem caps have plastic/rubber inserts, they do not have metal threads

    Yes they do, I currently have a set that's stuck on the stem. Do not get them.

    Check it manually or get TPMS. The only dust caps you should have are the plastic ones with gaskets in them, buy these things in bulk

        The ones OP posted? Yeah just get real TPMS

        I hate the ones with the o rings. I've had many customers come in with a tire that loses air but nobody can figure out why, when it's that little o ring being dislodged and pushing the valve open slightly. I've also had them get stuck in the space around the tip of the valve inside the stem, which is annoying to dig out.

        I've yet to deal with a disloged o-ring, shit just werks

        Yeah. They are a statement of your lifestyle and personality. Also they make your car faster and more efficient. They can literally unironically change your life.

    If you really want them put a bit of dielectric grease on the threads but yes they can get stuck

    Not if you get ones with a plastic insert. I have some on my VW, and they are exactly the same as the ones in your pic. Where you run into trouble is when you get cheap steel ones or shit like that. Go with the ones you have there and you'll be fine.

    I 3d print hundreds of these a week. I go around and place them on people's tires if they don't have a cap on their tire steam. I see it as a public service.

    If you worry about fricking stem caps jfc get a clue. Who the shit cares about that shit. You literally don't see that shit ever unless you look at it. If you think any frick cares you're wrong. Even car guys will miss it.

    had to cut them off with a little cutting wheel.

    If the valve stem is brass, screw whatever you want on there. If the valve stem is aluminum, NEVER put a metal cap on, or any plastic cap that has a metal threaded insert. You will look like a fricking clown with a low tire that is literally impossible to put air in later on.

    Here is one of the crusty caps I was talking about... I had to tape up pliers and hold onto the stem too, it was spinning, wow. anyways I'm even posting now because I had the most delightfully devilish idea yet... what if I were to take 4 plastic ones from work vehicles and pretend they're my own
