Lug Nuts and valve stems

I'm going from 15 to 16" Sendel rims on my 2017 25FC, but not sure about the lug nuts. I'm not sure what kit to buy for the nuts if someone can help with size, specs etc. also are the stock valve stems they use at pep boys, etc ok to go with? Also looks like the hub cap will work with 16" rim. Thanks

Got our lugs from Amazon

Our Alcoa wheels came with aluminum valve stems....the best option.

I put new tires on my trailer last summer. I used high pressure rubber pull thru valve stems. They have a brass core and were what my trailer came from the factory with. The held air fine for almost a year. During one trip, I found a tire totally flat. No punctures. I aired it up. It held air for days. I couldn't leave it alone, though. I went over the tire with soapy water. I found if I pushed the stem sideways it would leak....I broke all four tires down at home and put in bolt in metal valve stems after that.

Thumbs up

One thing I did learn with the aluminum valve stems....use plastic or aluminum valve caps.....AS felt that a base metal cap would do. First time I checked the AP they were frozen on, vice grips and chase the threads with new aluminum caps.

So has anyone come up with brass or stainless steel valve Stems? (The better to hold that mithical TPM sensors that actually work as promised.) )

For metal valve stems, I recommend Dill VS-902-W.

You may be able to get them from a Discount Tire store, that's where I got mine. Not listed on Amazon. Be careful of Chinese knockoffs.

What size are the lug nuts on a 25 FC 2017? How tight do I torque them? Have not picked up my baby yet. Just trying to get the tool box fitted out. Thanks everybody.

I believe it is 110lbs torque for the wheel lugs.

Def. metal valve stems in trailer use, they bolt in and have rubber grommet that seals and protects rim in and out from metal stem and nut damage. Only way to leak if not installed properly. Readily av. at auto part stores and many other places. They do not have to be aluminum . I do not trust high pressure rubber stems with metal inserts and cannot have break downs w/expensive construction and off rd. equipment and exp. AS.. Use short stems if av. as long can get knocked off, but only happened 1 time when off rd. I believe 110 pds. for aluminum rims 55 for steel but check specs with manf. and watch tire shops as they use impact wrench and some times tighten to much.
