Valve stems

I was about to order metal valve stems for my TPMS sensors and figured they were all the same size. Well apparently not. Went out to see if I could measure the hole the go in and That's a no go. So I'm at a loss as to what to order. Any ideas? Thanks.

I had my local Les Schwab store do the swap for me. $15 for the labor for each tire, included balancing. Before you ask, I have no idea if balancing did anything useful yet, as I only drove it home with unbalanced wheels.

Chief, these fit both, comes with different gaskets for either size.

You should have the 0.453 size hole, the most common on car, small trailer and light truck applications.

Are you going to install them yourself? For one of my last trailers, I went to a local tire store and purchased them installed - they warranted them from leaking when they supplied the metal valve stem.

You Nailed it. I went out and found the manufacturer and looked it up. Why I didn't do that to start with I have no answer. Thanks a bunch.

No I would mess it up. I'm going to let a dealership do it along with bearings, Tires and what ever else I can think of. I like to get my own parts for them to use. That way I know exactly what into the job. One of life's lessons. Thanks.
