Valve Stem & TPMS Services

To stay inflated, your vehicle’s tires need a valve stem to allow air in and out of the tire. Vehicles manufactured after 2007 have a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to monitor the pressure inside of the tires remotely. If there is an issue with either of these components, head over to Virginia Tire & Auto to receive expert service for both valve stems and TPMS.

Valve Stems

Each tire and wheel combination requires a specific valve stem that allows air to enter or leave the tire. The valve stem is a critical piece of your tire that can mean the difference between a properly inflated tire and one that loses air, putting your vehicle at risk of accidents or costly repairs. Additionally, they work with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System to alert you if your tires are underinflated. You can check these valves for cracks when you check your tire pressure. The Tire Industry Association recommends that valves be replaced whenever new tires are installed.

Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems

Vehicles manufactured after 2007 come equipped with the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). The function of this system is to alert you of significant changes to your tire pressure. While these sensors are certainly helpful if you have a hidden leak, they can trigger false alarms when the air temperature changes or if they are improperly installed. When you get new tires, Virginia Tire & Auto’s expert technicians reinstall your TPMS sensors with new valves and seals to make sure that the only false alarms you experience are when the unpredictable Northern Virginia climate springs into action.

Virginia Tire & Auto is your destination for new tires and repairs to essential tire components including valve stems and the TPMS.
