Wheel grommets

When we got our coach the rear wheels had rubber grommets in them to keep the valve stem from hitting the outer surfaces due to centrifigual force. I have lost one of them and I have no idea what they are called and no idea where to get them. Most people I spoke with are clueless as to what I am taking about. Anybody help?

Hello Ted:

They can be purchased from Alcoa. They are called Valve Stem Extension Stabilizers. The link is to the Alcoa Wheel Accessory Catalog. They start on page 10.
