    Okay, so I had new tires put on by my regular mechanic. I noticed while washing the truck that there were no valve stem covers on any of the tires.

    Does anyone know of the truck originally came with caps? I can't tell from my pictures.

    Just seems weird that he would l leave all four off, but then again maybe not...

    Yes, your truck would have originally come with valve stem caps. I believe your mechanic just forgot to put them back on.

    Some Alabama fan would just go nuts after seeing that, Steve. Probably result in road rage!

    With the metal stems on your TPMS sensors, please do yourself a favor and use only plastic caps. Metal caps WILL seize on the sensor stem if you live anywhere road salt is used, and the cost of replacing a working sensor for a broken off or damaged stem is a bummer.

    Good call. Yeah I ordered 10 gray plastic ones that look like the factory ones. They have the little extra space inside. Amazon for $3.99.

    Now when that goofy mechanic does this again I have back ups. Or when I forget one in the parking lot filling my wife's tires, lol.

    Go to a bicycle shop and ask for some. They usually have dozens lying around.
