The guy who sold me these rims says the standard valves on the Tickford wheels can rust or the washers move and cause leaks. So, they use a rubber valve and put these shoddy chrome caps on.

What do you guys reckon? I think they look very bloody ordinary!

Thumbs up

Very nice wheels Pete... The "Ducks nuts" so to speak.

I agree with you on the valves. They do like untidy...

Give the Guy an uppercut and have him change them...

Nipper....

How much for 30 minutes ??

I'm getting sick of going back to peoplke all the time to get a job done right. If I want the valves changed they will have to strip the tyres and will probably mark a rim. Just going to leave the rubber valves I think. They undercut on price quite a bit so what the hell.

As for putting them on a Camira, don't you mean Tangara?
