Valve stem

Where can I buy correct size valve stems for my Airsteam tires? I have a leaky one and none of the tire shops seem to have the right size. Thanks

I thought that there were only two hole sizes. Regardless, I would replace them with metal valve stems. I purchased mine at the local NAPA store. measure the hole size first.

Most trailer wheels use valve stems that are either 0.453 inches or 0.625 inches in diameter. You might find what you need at a tire repair shop that services medium size trucks or farm equipment.

I've gotten Milton valves on rack cards at Farm and Fleet.
O'riley and Carquest also stock them.
Maybe try a Tractor Supply Store in your area.
