Metal valve caps are a big issue in uk land for the salting / wet roads and washing of cars and some lazy people who take them to the local car washes who put acid on the alloys :surprise:

If yours is always stored in a garage and not let out in the rain you want have the issue of the corrosion [ provided you dont wash your alloys constantly ] :grin:

My AMG caps have an 8mm hex head. If they happen to get a bit sticky, a spanner takes care of it. Also stops little toe-rags from stealing them.
