Help please.Having problems with a 2005 ghia x 2.5 with the tyre valves leaking.
Is it possible to change the so called auto valves for normal valves.
Are the holes in the rim standard size ?

Thanks in anticipation

Mike

if its the same type as fitted to the mondeo ST wheels then replacing them with rubber ones causes no problems, its actually quite common as the metal ones cause the wheels to corrode
