Different metals= seizing.... There's some fancy pants chemistry term for it that I can't remember right at this moment....
The cap will become one with the module, and when you go to remove the cap, you destroy the stem and effectively the module... Also, in case you don't know, NEVER use fix a flat or slime or similar in a tire with a TPMS module.....

Keep the rubber caps on and deal with the way they look, unless you want to fork over the $150+ per tpms module to replace them..... Not warrantied if you jack 'em up by putting on metal caps that will seize to the module.....

Rock45 You can put a piece of black heat shrink tubing (get it at any auto parts store in the wiring dept) over that valve stem and clean it right up...easy!

CRNA Use the ncikel plated 9mm shell casing caps they sell at differing vendors. $8/set. The shell is longer than most caps and will cover the brass. Not as shiny as chrome, but still silver.

Nah, that will look shitty. I need something to cover it like it should be. Never seen valve stems like this.

Valve stem caps

Yeah I know this is stupid but where can I find the right caps? I want to get the chrome caps but I can't find them anywhere. These aren't the usual type you can get in the parts store. Why do these have to be so different? I put one of my chrome caps on my wheel and this is what I got. Cant put chrome sleevs on. The brass will still show.
