Angry Bought Prodrives PFF7's, missing valve stems

Vendor M..... Sports told me Prodrive wheels would ship with metal stems but they didnt, do performance wheels usually come with metal valve stems?
What kind should I get? rubber base with metal stem or bolt on metal?

Prodrive's don't come with stems unless the vendors provide them...I prefer the stubby black rubber stems, less prone to leaks than the metal stems

I think I may have some new metal stems laying around here. Like Opie, I prefer the black rubber ones. If you want them, PM me and I'll dig around for them. You can have them for cheap

Check with your local tire place. Mine offered them up for free when I asked.

My PFF7s didn't come with valve stems either, the place that mounted + balanced my tires on them included them for free with the mounting charge.
