    Hi guys
    Just got my Accord back from its MOT, no problems. Just a couple of advisories:- both front wheel valves are beginning to perish or words to that effect. Never had that problem before so was looking at replacing the valves with aftermarket metal ones, has anyone got any recommendations for replacements? The tyres will be up for replacement soon so could just go down the rubber version again.

    Rubber valves perish (eventually), metal ones corrode.

    Take your pick.

    as above and any good tyre garage should replace the valve as a matter of course anyway.
