Tyre valves are an essential part of your car's safety. They allow air to enter and exit, which is crucial to keeping your wheels inflated. If you're not sure what type of parts you need, we can help. We offer a wide selection of these components – from brass to plastic – so no matter what make or model your vehicle is, we’ll have the right solution for you.
These components need to be replaced regularly. If they’re faulty or damaged in any way, this can cause loss of air pressure over time. This makes it challenging to inflate your wheels and leaves them more susceptible to punctures, which can lead to significant problems down the line.
Our affordable range is available to be shipped to your door, so you can always have replacements on hand and maximise the tyre pressure on your vehicle.
This will depend on your driving habits, but typically every three to five years is enough for most people. It also depends on where you live – if you drive in an area with lots of dust or dirt, your tyres will wear out faster than for someone who lives in a cleaner environment.
It also depends on the type of wheels you have. A high-performance set might last longer than a budget set, so keep this in mind when deciding how long to wait before replacing them again.
Replacing your wheel valves regularly will help prevent flats from occurring and reduce fuel consumption by up to 10 per cent, so ensure that you periodically install new options to your vehicle.
There are two main types of valves for cars – Schrader and Presta. Schrader is the most common type for cars and bikes. It has a threaded stem that can be unscrewed to release air from the tyre, or inflated with compressed air.
Presta is used on high-performance bicycles due to its ability to withstand higher pressures without leaking. These also have a narrower opening, which makes it easier to attach an air pump nozzle.
Schrader products are used on most cars, but some prefer Presta as they’re easier to push down with less effort. In addition, Presta products have a higher pressure rating than Schrader, so they're more suitable for high-performance vehicles or those fitted with low-profile wheels.
