    Question for ya mr Loom... when you change tyres you normally have new valves fitted too.. Does this mean every tyre change you'll have to purchase new ones?

    i believe you only have to replace the actual inner valve and not the
    whole unit.

    as with if they are kwik fit proof then ive lost ya ???

    Great stuff Andy, glad you're happy with them. Just the valve core needs replacing once it's been removed not the whole shabang.
