Description

These small cylindrical pieces were used on the road-going cars to protect the innertube valve stems from cuts from debris or stones on the road. My 250 Cabriolet had them and I have seen them on other cars as late as the 365 2+2s. I believe that they were supplied by Pirelli and only used on cars with Pirelli tires. These sleeves are tin-plated, the retaining knurled nuts are chrome-plated as are the valve stem caps. I have seen original pieces with several different finishes including some painted sleeves on a very original 330 2+2. The sleeve will have to be hand-fitted to the rims and the different sized innertube valve stems. Valve Stem Set, jam nuts and caps
