One question i got for you guys, i figured that the rubber valve stems were better due to the fact that they bend and can move out of the way. Where as the steel ones have a tendency to sheer off when hit by a rock and what not. I've seen my buddies ranger crush the stem against a rock and still hold air for over a month and that was using the rubber ones.

And nice job on the locks so far

w/o rock rings or bead locks i would run rubber ones.. if you have a ring to protect the valve stem, use the metal ones.

Thanks. I will probably wait it out a bit longer. Since I could probably find one like that here locally.
