    but they might be to short to get a tyre pressure gage on them

    It's best to get one and check but they were fine on my team dynamic wheels,just depends on the position and depth of the valve hole.

    At that price i'd buy and try 'em,try measuring your existing valve and see how it would be only 1/2 long that would give you an idea.

    That's the length from the base of the valve hole (face side),hence if the casting is very deep you'll end up with just the tip of the cap showing!,this site might help,http://www.tyre-rite.co.uk/searchres...?CategoryID=43.

    just make sure they aren't too fat. some older wheels require large diamiter base valves. Meaning the hole in the wheel for the valve is larger than normal. Those particular ones look ok though.

    Rubber valves all the way. The valve seals itself. if you start mucking around with bolt in valves you may in the future start having issues with air leaks
