Where can I find rubber wheel inserts ?

Where can I buy the black rubber plugs that fit into the "spoke openings" of the wheels and support the valve stem? I seem to have lost or misplaced one of mine. I also need about a 3" straight valve extension. I imagine any auto parts or tire shop will carry the extensions but the rubber inserts?

I think you mean Valve Stem Extension Stabilizers, if thatís what you are looking for you can get them from Alcoa Wheels.

Alcoa Wheel Products Commercial Vehicles Heavy Duty Truck Trailer Bus Motorcoach R/V

They are listed in there Catalog on page 10.

When you order the extension stabilizer be aware that they are wheel specific for both diameter and angle. Get the info off of your wheel before calling so you get the correct part.

Harold:

I picked up one from my tire shop, but the Alcoa version doesn't quite fit right. As KIX said, you will need to get one made for AccuRide wheels. Accuride Wheels

I believe Accuride Wheels is out of business or at minimum in bankruptcy...The 800 number (the only number) on thier website no longer works..If the Alcoa stabilizers don't fit properly any ideas where the stem stabilizers for the Accuride wheels can be found?

Well if you are on the west coast, WRV purchased all their wheels and tire monitoring systems from Les Schwalb Tire Centers, give the Yakama, WA store a call, I would bet they could help you, but any good truck tire shope could also fix you up.
