    No link expertise here... I'm saying I'll mail you the caps that those little rat bas..... (aaah, punks that is) have been stealing. I've got what you need and I'm willing to send you four of them. They won't steal these, dude....

    Let me know..

    The issue only happens in combination with metal stems (i.e. newer cars with TPMS sensors). MINI even had to change their accessory decorative caps from metal to plastic because of this.

    No. I cannot, because I do not use them on my cars. I use the fingernail polish to "glue" the cap threats to the caps, instead...remember?
