Tubeless Valve Stems in NAS 110 Steel Wheels

When I purchased my 110 it has pull through valve stems in the steelies and tubeless BFG's mounted. I scrapped the stems when I had the wheels refinished, but the standard valve stems that we use at the dealer seem a little loose in the tube wheel valve hole. I mounted four of the tires last night and they hold air fine, but I am concerned about the valves not being tight enough when the tires are aired down for off-road use. I would like to replace the valve stems with a bolt in style, but I can't seem to find them in the proper diameter. What has everyone else done that has switched to tubeless on the NAS 110 steelies?

Thank you.

Generally the clamp style come with two grommet sizes included, for .453" and .625" holes. I got some really short ones at NAPA that fit my Wolf wheels.

One thing to remember with some of the steel rims is that they don't have a bead retention lip to help keep the tire on the rim in case of low tire pressure - just a safety heads up.

Why are you not running tubes? Tubes are good.
