These can corrode and get stuck on your stems. Plastic is much better for this sort of thing.

Yup, had to replace two pressure sensors on my wheels cause the metal caps corroded on. Only use plastic from now on. I don’t understand why the metallic caps are even available for sale. Terrible product.

Don't buy these! I still have them glued onto my winter wheels.

I think I might've damaged the valve stem trying to pull 'em off!

Why even bother "upgrading" stock valve covers? I've seen some cars with green ones on their winters but I've never had issues with plastic ones, with the exception of forgetting to screw them back on the odd time.

Sillies, these aren't intended for your own use. You give these as a gift to someone you don't like, someone who won't know about the problem they create.

While we’re on this topic- some car manufacturers include metal valve stems and covers with the car at delivery. Are those different and not prone to the same corrosion/damage issues?

You might have been hosed, every TPMS i have came across screw onto the valve stem. Sometimes they can be changed out without even dismounting the entire tire.
