i also got these from PFYC. they also look really good. they come with special keys so that they lock on the valve stem. so w/o the key you cannot get them off. i feel better knowing that some teenage punk cant come by and yank my chromees. :)

What does the key look like? How does it work?


Thanks
i will try to post some some pics tonight.
but i will try to explain as best as i can.
you put the stem cap on and turn by handed. then you slip on the "key" which fits around the stem cover. you use the key to turn the cap a few more times until it "snaps". now it is locked. you can still turn the cap but the threads wont back off. it if very similar to a locking gas cap. hope this helps.

The caps look good. Question is, why didn't the factory use the grey valve stems such as are available at tire shops?? Unless the composition is not as durable as the black rubber---that is a possible reason I guess, but the grey sure would have looked better. Black sticks out like a sore thumb.

I bought the non-locking version valve stem caps that are the same brushed aluminum but they say GTO and have the GTO emblem on them instead. They also have o rings in the top of the cap. I got them directly from the company. They were being sold on Ebay and they had a picture of the package so I seached Goggle and found the company and ordered direct from them.
Could you post the company's name? If they're not a sponser, please PM me.
