View Full Version : Stupid assholes, quit stealing my valve stem covers!

wtf? The shiny metal caps that go on the valve stems on your tires cost about 2 dollars at AutoZone...it's like stealing a fucking roll of pennies or some shit, especially when you only manage to take one.

But it means dirt and other shit can find its way into my valve stems, so knock it the fuck off.

Now I gotta go and buy new, nondesript black ones because stupid bastards are tkaing my shiny ones one at a time (and I didn't put the shiny ones on there, the place that put my new tires on did it)

This may be a stupid thought, but could it be some critter perpetrating the thievery? Maybe a magpie who likes shiny things? I don't know if they're clever or limber enough to unscrew them.

Hee hee hee, when I was around 11 or 12 stealing what we called "chromed caps" was the height of bad assedness. I used to have hundreds of them, for absolutely no reason. Two pretty much covered your bike, everything after that was just extra stupid gravy. Stop with the style on your valve stems and just get some black plastic $.02 cents a dozen ones and be done with it. Otherwise you'll forever be the victim of petty, super ultra petty, thieves the rest of your days.

Same here, but we called the "metalies.

You could always do what I do now, drive round with your plastic dust caps and take your metalies to the office and trade. ;)

Yep me too, we called 'em "Chromies".

You bastards. ;)

I will go get the cheap ones for 50 cents. It's what I had before I got new tires. I thought the new ones loked nice, though, even though I knew they'd last less than a week.

Kids will be kids and all that, but if I ever catch any of them, they're going to swallow all 4 of those things (or howeever many I have left). Dry.

Just dip 'em in superglue first.

Google ads to the resuce. Locking chrome valve caps.

A drop of Loctite blue makes them unremovable without pliers. If you've opted for the nice fill through the cap style, you're good to go.

About 18 years ago, someone broke into my locked car, and stole the stereo and doorlock knobs. Really, that was all they took.

Try having to buy new wiper inserts every week because some asshat steals them from the blades. WHY??
A disadvantage to having a nice, common Toyota.
