Anyone know the size of the valve stem for these? I have bought them before, but can't find them now and need the size to do a search. I have plenty of the TR415's for .625 rim hole but too big.

Any auto-parts store should have the size you need.

I didn't realize until about a year or so ago that there were more than 1 size, cause the size I had fell through the hole in the rim!

TR 413's work fine, or I think the shorter one is a 412.   There is a "real short" stubby one that they sell for GTs and golf carts etc I forget the number for those, it is barely longer than the threads for the valve cap.

The ones I have are for .625 rim hole. I measured my rim holes at  11.2mm Something is not right here.

 

Edit, set the gauge to inches, I need ones that fit .445 rim holes.

Any thoughts on drilling the holes larger to fit the ones (more common .625) that I have?

That .453 valve is very common on motorcycles.  I sell them for 87 cents.  Hit up your nearest motorcycle/atv repair shop.  Not worth the trouble to drill.

the .450 is much more common,  its what all tubeless car rims take, and what your GT rims should be, the .625 is less common we used to call those ones "fat bob" valves.

The rims on my wife's Gilson are the larger .625 size.

I don't remember what rim I was working with but I bought a couple of the .625, and today I bought 4 more, "just in case"!

I also bought 4 of the smaller .453 size too!

 

Oh, I found them at an auto parts store.
