Actually this thread has given me a thought ..

When you have new tyres .. well when i fit them i replace the tyre valves with the same size .. there are shorter ones available if you want them .. just ask for the smaller type .. it wont cost anything extra .

Dust caps are free as long as they are black .. we dont do blue .. or pink .. or ...

Floor

Ive yet to see a Porsche with them fitted !

I think the best option is the tyres that have a rim protector .. in other words they stick out past the wheels and take the damage .. Pirelli ? not sure .

That is unless my wifes driving Surprised

Either way .. dont fit metal caps .. if you do then grease the threads .. and please .. Please dont fit caps with the stupid allen key locking device .. yea they cant get nicked .. yea i dont have a key that size , yea the customer if he has one doesnt say were it is and i cant do the tyre pressures on a service Razz

Frustrated !
