don't want the rubber stems, they dry rot over time. I found out the hard way:edit:

I can find the size if you need it, but I got mine off ebay. You can buy the exact same metal stem at almost any auto parts store though. It's a standard size stem but I don't recall the exact size of it. I use the regular straight ones but some use the 90 degree angle stems to make checking the pressure on the front easier.

Edit: Found the stems. It's not the same seller but several sell them. And they have a sleeve that lets them fit either .435 or .625 holes. I bought the two pack of them for less than $5.00.

Thanks guys. I have a second set of these that I bought for my Sabre. Since it looks like they take the same size, I think I'll use those.:bigthumbsup: Just wasn't sure if the Suzi rims took a different size.
