    Valve stem help? (TPMS model)

    I was reading through Top_Fuelís post about tpms and that our cars take the VS-90 valve stems. I bought new wheels and need new valve stems but autozone and advance auto both say that the vs-90 is incompatible with my vehicle and I need to get these Schrader stems. I have a 2017 mirage es. Any help would be appreciated.

    I just went to AutoZone's website and they flat-out have the wrong valve stem listed for the Mirage.

    Here's a pic below... You want the valve stem on the LEFT...it has a metal 'barb' on the end that the TPMS sensors clip on to.

    If you are re-using your factory TPMS sensors, these are the valve stems you want.

    The valve stem on the right (with the screw) is for Schrader branded TPMS sensors. Your OEM TPMS sensors will not attach to these stems.
