Soo... I got a TPMS warning and went to check my tires and noticed that all 4 of my valve covers are missing... who the heck steals these things?
Went to a partsource which is close by and picked up a cheap set but they are shallower than the ones I had originally. Anyone know where I can pick up a longer set of aluminium / some kind of metal valve covers? (Ideally in canada and <=$10 prior to shipping)
Also were the OEM valve covers metal (brushed alum?) over black plastic?

I had a brand new set of craiger ss on my chevelle years ago and someone stole mine
x.x what possible reason is there to steal them.... also this never used to happen with the family Toyota sigh... Lx world problems
Yup, usually kids...
I picked up a hex shaped set with an "O" ring seal. I give 'em a bit of a twist after getting them finger tight... haven't lost any in about 5 years
We used to steal em when we were kids. It was just somethin to do.
I'll never use any type of locking or hex tool needed set again. They cemented themselves to my vales stems once. The valve stem twisted clear off getting the caps off. Instant flat tire. & being 3 of them I had to take the wheels off & use another car to drive to a shop to get them fixed. Let them take them. I can get 100's online cheap.
