Video Transcript for Americana Tire Inflation and Repair - Valve Stems - AM20906 Review

Today we're going to take a look at this bolt-in metal valve stem. Now this metal valve stem is about one and a quarter inches long. It is designed to fit through .453 diameter and .625 diameter rim holes on your trailer wheels. The valve stem is going to provide an inflation point for the tire. Now it comes with all these pieces together. It comes with the two rubber grommets. One of them will fit the .453 valve hole diameter.

The larger one will fit the .625 valve hole diameter. It comes with the washer, the nut and valve cap. Now this a durable steel construction. It's a very simple bolt-in installation. The thing you do need to remember is that the valve stem should only be installed using one of these grommets.

You don't need to use both of them, only one of them for the size hole you're putting it in. Now the industry standard part number on this is a TR-416. Again we mentioned we length is one and a quarter inches. The metal valve stem is designed to hold a maximum tire pressure of 100 psi and greater. Now what I am going to do .. When you do receive this, again I just want to give you a warning, it'll usually come with the larger grommet on the bottom, and then they'll put the smaller grommet on top.

Then they'll usually have the washer on here, the nut on here to hold it all together and the valve cap. That is somewhat how you install it, but the trick is, you do not want to use two grommets. When you get it this way that doesn't mean to use one on the bottom and one on the top. What I am going to show you is I have happen to pull a couple of different wheels here so let me just zoom out a little bit. I just wanted to show you, here's a standard eight spoke trailer wheel that you'll see a lot. This happens to be a fourteen inch one.

What you want to do is I'm just going to take the valve cap off, the nut off, the washer off, and then the rubber grommets. What you want to make sure . Now the rubber grommets. What you make sure . Now the rubber grommet size, there's only two valve holes and this will cover both of them. Now the larger grommet size, the .625 is usually for larger tires and wheels like sixteen inch on up. Anything under sixteen inch you'll usually use the .453. What you want to do . Let's just zoom in a little bit here. Here's your valve stem hole. You want to make sure the area around the hole where you're going to put the metal valve into has got a very flat area because you want it to be able . On top you're going to put this washer down over it and that needs to tighten down flat, so you do want to make sure of that. What you want to do is take the smaller rubber grommet, the .453 and just push that down on the valve stem, just like that. Then what you want to do is right where the hole is, push your valve stem right up through that hole, and push that rubber grommet into that hole. It will actually be snug enough that it will usually hold that valve in place. Then what you want to do is take your washer, drop your washer on top of there until it is flat. Take your nut, put your nut and spin it all the way down and then just snug that up until that rubber grommet bulges out a little. Then you're all ready to go. Put your valve cap on that. That gives you a nice looking valve stem on your wheel and it'll be able to hold over 100 psi or more. Now what I also want to do is we're going to take this one off. I'm going to show you what you want to do to make sure this will work on your wheel, you want to make sure that you have enough, first of all that's it's going to tighten down onto a flat area. Make sure the valve hole is not on a rounded area where you won't be able to tighten it. Make sure you have room around the valve hole for the diameter of this washer. Let's take this one out of the way and I'm going to pull . Here's another type we sell. This is a black conventional wheel. This one is going to be hard to see but let me rotate it, and you'll be able to see. Probably right back here where the hole is, you can see I'm moving my finger over it, that's where your hole is. You'll do the same thing. Again this is the smaller hole. This is a fifteen inch black spoke wheel. You'll go ahead and push it through there. Again, it'll hold it in place. Go ahead and put your washer on and again, you'll see there's enough area. It's close to the edge but it's still going to give you enough to tighten down and seal it correctly. Then the last one I want to show you that we get a lot of questions on is fitting it to a aluminum wheel. Here is a sixteen inch aluminum wheel. This one, let me scoot up just a little bit, and we'll turn it around. Right here is where your valve hole is. Now on an alloy or aluminum wheel like these that have a nice, special design to them, lots of times the hole is indented in there, so there's only a little opening around there. You got to make sure this will fit. Again this is the smaller hole, so you have the .453. Push it through just like that. Then what you want to make sure is you'll take that washer, and if that washer will drop in that hole, which is does in this one, just like that, move it up a little bit, that washer does fit flat up against. Then you can put your nut on there. Go ahead and tighten that nut down. Again, the nut fits in there. Use a thin wall socket to snug that down and then put your valve cap on and you're all ready to go. It gives you a nice metal valve stem on your aluminum to give it a good look. Again, if you happen to have a tire that's going to use over 100 psi, you do want to be able to use the metal valve stems. I'm just going to unscrew that nut and then push that valve stem up and then push that washer right out. Again, just to go over this bolt-in metal valve stem. You pick the rubber grommet. Only use one of the rubber grommets. Pick the one for the size of the hole in your wheel and then go ahead and put it through the wheel, put the washer on top, the outside of the wheel, tighten your nut down. Once it's all tightened down correctly, put your valve cap on there. Simple as that. That should do it for the review on the bolt-in metal valve stem.

Wheels look great... Other parts are as expected although the cotter pins were a little smaller than the ones used on the surge controller. Only problem with my order was that the wheel caps were nested but not individually protected. One of them has some scrapes on it from rubbing inside the other and a couple of the black plastic caps have abrasions from rubbing together. 461921

One of the valve stems ordered arrived with the smaller grommet missing. Called CS and was immediately taken care of. Could not send just the missing grommet so they sent another valve stem. I was so impressed with the quality and service that I ordered 5 more for the camper. Note that this was not a high dollar order, but the service was first class. 392705

Was promptly notified when the wheels I ordered were temporarily out-of-stock and told when to expect them to be shipped. The wheels and other items arrived as soon as they were received from the supplier within the week. This is great communication and excellent customer service !! Upon getting the wheels and accessories I was very pleased with the quality of everything and the wheels look fantastic !! Keep up the good work etrailer .. I would highly recommend you to others !! Thanks for everything. 370577

Had the steel valve stems installed at a local garage in Charleston, SC. My wife and I are on a 6 week road trip of well over 2000 miles. I check the tire pressure every other day and are holding at 65 pounds on all 6 tires. These are an excellent product. 392890


Comments
I have not had to add any air to the since we increased the tire pressure to 70 psi last year. The product makes it so easy to check tire pressure. We are on a 4 week trip now and I check the 6 tires every morning. Great product, thank you!

We travel a lot in a fifth wheel trailer and have our share of bliw outs. The last one was because the business where we purcased new tires did not replace the valve stems as I had requested. So now I have these metal stems installed and should not have that problem again. They work great. And George at etrailer did a very good job getting them to me in a timely manner. Would recommemd them. And I will order from them again. THANKS GEORGE. 492878

Got my 2 custom aluminum trailer rims with tires today(4-06-17) they were delivered in only a few days-along with new chrome wheel lug nuts and new replacement studs and chrome screw on valve stems -took them to my local [service center] to have them mounted--got back home and installed them on the boat trailer I restored this past summer with the boat on it that I am also restoring--The rims look great. Thanks Katie for all your help with placing my order---I am a repeat customer and will tell all of my friends of the great service I received. Thank You. 366292

I purchased these to go with the Aluminum Hi-Spec Series 6 Trailer Wheel - 15" x 6" Rim - 6 on 5-1/2 - Black - AM22652B and the tire store I took them to for installation advised they would not work in the wheel I purchased unless they drilled out the hole. Wasted my money on these. 655330


Comments
The wheel you purchased has a .453 inch diameter valve stem hole. The valve stem you received includes two different diameter grommets, one of which is compatible with a .453 valve stem hole.

I ordered 7 Taskmaster Providers 235/85R16 G rated tires for my 44' Toy Hauler because the tires that came on it and the Goodyear Marathon tires (both E rated) I replaced those with failed. When I say failed, I mean blowouts that did severe damage to the side of my 5th Wheel trailer. It's still in the shop being repaired. After many hours of reviews everywhere I decided to try these tires. They arrived UPS in two days after I ordered and the tires look much more substantial than the Marathons or other E rated tires I've had. I ordered 7 metal valve stems too just in case the tire place didn't have stems for this 110 psi tire. Very happy with etrailer and the price was the best I found anywhere. Example...Goodyear G614 ..both made in China! I'll try to update this for the tire itself when I get some milage and confidence back on my toy hauler. 447308

Good Stuff. if you drive in snow, ice, slush, etc. you will need these. Standard rubber valve stems don't last, and will eventually cause you to have a "flat tire" because the rubber cracks, and leaks, from the ice and snow getting packed in around the rim. Then when there's too much snow, packed in your rims, and your car starts shaking on the highway because your tires are out of balance, you gotta try and scrape the snow out, without hitting, and bending the rubber valve stem, which will cause it to crack and leak. These valve stems, solve all those problems and worries. 891720

  • Deciding Between Flow-Through and Cap Style TPMS Sensors for an RV
    If you have valve stems with a metal body like the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem part # AM20906 then you will want to use flow-through sensors but if you have valve stems with a rubber body like the Americana Rubber, Snap-In Valve Stem part # AM20903 then you will want to use the cap style sensors. The TST TPMS for RVs part # TST-507-FT-4-C and part # TST-507-RV-4-C are my recommendations.

  • Should Trailer Tires Run with 10 Less psi During the Summer
    There are 2 common misconceptions about trailer tires that can definitely lead to blow outs. The first is to fill the tires to the psi listing on the trailer instead of on the sidewall of the tire, and the second is to reduce or increase the air pressure. Both of these are incorrect and can/will lead to tire failure. When filling up your trailer tires you want to make sure they are cold (after the trailer has been sitting overnight) and then fill them to the psi rating on the sidewall....

  • What Is the PSI Rating Of the HWT Aluminum Hi-Spec Series LW Trailer Wheels
    The HWT Aluminum Hi-Spec Series LW Trailer Wheels do not have a max psi rating. The reason for this is because it does not come with a valve stem and that is what dictates your psi rating. The Americana Metal Bolt-In Valve Stem part # AM20906 is what I recommend as it will allow for up to 200 psi which will work with all of the available tire sizes for the above wheel.

  • How Tight Should The Grommet On A .453” Size Valve Stem Be
    I believe what you are looking for is the inch pounds needed for the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906. If it's tight and torqued down properly (Between 25 to 45 inch-pounds technically), the nut will not loosen during travel. Included is a video resource for additional information from here.

  • How Tight to Install Nut of Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem
    There isn't a set amount of torque that you need to tighten the nut of the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 basically you'll want to watch the rubber grommet on the inside of the wheel as you tighten it and once it's nice and snug you'll see it bulge out and you'll know it's tight enough.

  • Can the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 be Installed on a Dodge Ram
    You most certainly can use the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 for your Dodge Ram. The only thing you will want to look at to make sure it will install properly is that you have a 3/4" diameter flat space around where the valve stem sits so that the washer will seal properly. I have attached a picture highlighting the washer for demonstration.

  • What Wheels Can Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 Fit
    The really great thing about the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 that you referenced is that it has the ability to fit both of the common wheel valve stem hole sizes of .453 and .625 inch. So it will fit the Viking Valhalla aluminum wheel # AX02660655BMMFL you mentioned.

  • Metal Valve Stem Compatibility with Tires Rated for 80 PSI Max
    The Trailer Valve Stem # AM20906 is rated for tires with air pressure over 100 psi, but it will work just fine with a tire rated under 100 psi max as well. It will work perfectly with your 80 psi max tires.

  • How to Find Metal Valve Stem for Lionshead Jaguar Wheel
    To find the correct valve stem for your Lionshead Jaguar wheel you only need to measure the diameter of the hole the valve stem is coming through. It is likely that the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 will work for you as it includes a pair of rubber grommets that fits the common 0.453" and 0.625" diameter rim holes on trailer wheels. This stem is rated for over 100 psi and is 1-1/4" long. I've attached a link to a video review of this stem for you to check out.

  • Are the Americana Metal Bolt-In Valve Stem Made of Stainless Steel
    The steel valve stems # AM20906 are made of a durable steel with a maximum tire pressure rating of over 100 psi. However, these stems are not manufactured in stainless steel. Unfortunately, we do not carry a valve stem that is made from stainless steel.

  • Do Trailer Wheels Have a PSI Rating
    In regards to a trailer wheel and tire assembly, the psi rating comes from the trailer tire and valve stem. Therefore, if the psi rating of the valve stem exceeds that of the trailer tire you will not have any issues. The trailer wheel itself does not have any sort of psi rating. The highest rated valve stem we offer is the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem part # AM20906 which is rated for over 100 psi.

    We have the Americana valve stem part # AM20906 which is a metal valve stem that fits valve stem hole in trailer wheels that are either .453 and .625 inch. These two sizes basically cover all trailer wheels. The valve stem can also handle over 100 psi so in that regard it would work well for you too.

  • Does Metal Valve Stem Need to be Installed if Trailer Tire Has 90 PSI Rating
    The only time that a metal valve stem like part # AM20906 is required is when the psi rating meets or exceeds 100 psi. If you plan on using the Kenda 205/65-10 Bias Trailer Tire with 10" Galvanized Wheel # AM3H490 then you don't have to change out to a metal valve stem as this comes with the valve stem # AM20907 which is rated for up to 100 psi. With that being said, it never hurts anything to install a valve stem that has a higher psi rating so if metal valve stems will give you some...

  • How to Tell if a Wheel is Rated for 100 psi
    To use tires rated for 110 psi on your current wheels you just need to make sure they have a metal valve stem like part # AM20906. The highest rated rubber valve stem available is only rated for 100 psi which we carry as part # AM20907. Anything over 100 psi needs to have a metal valve stem.

  • Do I Have To Buy New Wheels To Accommodate A 110 PSI Tire?
    Typically the limiting factor on a trailer rim when it comes to tire pressure is the valve stem used on the wheel. Sometimes you can still find the air pressure rating printed on the rim or in the owners manual. Some trailers have a plate on the trailer frame near the coupler that has the PSI, VIN, axle capacities, as well as the trailer tire size and Load Range recommended. If you can confirm that the wheels you have on your trailer can accommodate tire pressure of 110 and G rated...

The two common sizes are .453 and .625 inch which the part # AM20906 is a confirmed fit for both so it would work for you. This can handle over 100 psi so it would work well for you in that regard as well.

  • Can 16 inch Trailer Wheel Handle over 100 PSI Rated Tires
    Yes if you 16 inch diameter trailer wheels they will easily be able to handle the psi of the tire you mentioned after upgrading the valve stems with the # AM20906. In the tire size of 235/85-16 LR G the best option is the Taskmaster # PTCG235R16 which has a weight capacity of 4,400 lbs at 110 psi.

  • Can I Determine the psi Rating of a Wheel
    Since wheels will be able to withstand the psi rating of any of the tires that are meant to fit it you will need to look at the valve stem as that is the deciding factor. If your valve stem has the rubber all the way up to the threads, like part # AM20903, then it will be rated around 65 psi. If there is some reinforcement between the rubber and the threads, like part # AM20904 or # AM20907, then your valve stem can be rated between 80 and 100 psi. The only valve stems that are rated...

  • Is a Metal Valve Stem Going to Help Prevent Valve Stem Failure
    Going to a heavier duty valve stem certainly wouldn't hurt. The best way to prevent failure though is to be sure to use the proper air pressure in the tire. You would need to know the diameter of your rim where the valve stem goes through to be able to pick out the correct one. If that dimension is .625 inch then you would want the part # AM20906. This is the only metal one we carry.

The only type of valve stem that should be avoided when using the Pressure Pro TPMS system is one that is exceptionally long as that may interfere with the effectiveness of the pressure reading.

    For trailer wheels the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 that you referenced basically fits all wheels. It fits the two most popular hole sizes for valve stems of .453 and .625 inch by swapping out the rubber grommets. Since your hole measure 5/8 inch this will work guaranteed. This can also handle up to 80 psi as well.

  • Can the Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 be Used for 110 lbs psi
    The Americana Metal, Bolt-In Valve Stem # AM20906 is actually rated for up to 200 psi. Most people who tend to ask about the metal valve stem are looking at tires rated for 110 psi though which is why you see that psi rating a lot in our answers about this valve stem. Just be sure that the included washer mounts flush against your trailer wheel and you are good to go!
