    Vehicle : Ford Kuga

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 2.0dtci

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 1200

    Default Flush fit valves

    Anyone used these? Or have an opinion? Seems like a good idea to me, less likely to get damaged and lookks good too.

    The downside would be that they'd need to be fitted by a tyre fitter, rather than DIY.

    I use them on all my alloys and are a great idea and easier to keep the wheel clean around the valve.

    I bought a new set for my 19's but ended up fitting TPMS instead.

    What Lee said...

    I couldn't use them on mine because I've got TPMS valves on mine.

    Won't be any good to me either, as my tyre valves have GPS units built in (for 100% accurate speed measuring).

    Lol, what makes you think I can fit a normal type valve? Tyre fitter either way.

    Are you allowed to read fax's and drive, or is that like a mobile phone thing?
    Thanks everybody for input. Wendy hates them, but she's got TPMS on her car so she can't have them anyway.
