    Probably been asked before, but I couldn't find it by searching. What is everyone using for valvestems on H1 12bolt wheels?

    There was a couple threads on here just about 2 weeks ago about this. I believe the consensus was to drill the hole out and use regular valve setms.

    I'm switching mine out, cause out of 5 rims, I have 3 valve stems. One of which is bad. I havent found a place to get the actual stems, so I am going with something I can find easily.:D

    BIG TRUCK just got the valve stems from the local tire shop (have to take the wheel to them) the valve cores he got from a specialty shop online with the filters on them.

    I just finished drilling and installing the new stems in my 12-bolts about an hour ago.

    I am using TR412s that I bought off ebay. No one local had them, so now I have 100 of them. I used a stepped drill bit I got from HF for $10 to drill the holes. I tried a few other ways but this was the best. The hole is 1/2" for the stems. Be careful centering the drill, the slot is a bit wider than 1/2".
    As a insurance against leaks I put a thin bead of black silicone around each valve stem. Then I stuck the stem in the hole from the back and gave it a tug with a pair of pliers.

    I will be assembling the wheels tomorrow after washing the magnesium dust off the run flats. There is a good bit on them from being cut down.

    I think the ones I posted about are military only, but I am not sure.
