Does Taskmaster Provider ST235/85R16 Radial Tire & Wheel A16RGGMML Have Rubber Valve Stem


What type of Valve Stems are these, Rubber or Metal? I can assume they are Metal due to the high pressures. Most TPMSs will require the Valve stems to be Metal to support the extra weight. If they are not metal, can they be upgraded before shipped?

Taskmaster Provider ST235/85R16 Radial Tire with 16-Inch Viking Gray Aluminum Wheel # A16RGGMML has a rubber valve stem, not a metal one. I checked this myself in our warehouse. Although the stem is rubber, it is rated for this tire. We bring in this wheel/tire combination from the distributor already mounted and we do not mount tires here. Once they sell through the current stock the distributor will switch to a metal stem.

If you wish to order the wheel and tire as separate items you can do so. The wheel only is part # AX02665865HDGMML and the tire only is part # TTWPRG235R16. I checked the wheels we have in stock and they do include a valve stem. You can have your local tire shop supply metal stems when they mount the tires.
