High pressure tire valves

Hi all,
I just ordered and received a new set of tires for my 2000 scsb f250 xlt. I've been searching online for high-pressure bolt-in valve stems and just getting confused about what I should be buying. The load-range E tires are rated for 80psi max, so I would think I need valves rated for more than that. I've found TR600HP listed at 80psi some places and 100psi in others. In addition, I came across a thread somewhere in which someone said you need certain valves to fit the stock alloy wheels on these trucks, which have a recess for the valve to seat.

Anyway, have any of you already gone through this? Where's the best place to get a set of the correct stems for this application, and can you give me part numbers to search for? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Den

Whoever mounts them should have them. They're just standard HP stems. I always ask to make sure they use the right ones but the sales guys always get confused, but the guy mounting them always know they use the right HP stems in them. I think they're 120 psi rated, or it could be 100psi that you found.

Just did this at Firestone this week, when the sales guy asked the guy mounting them he looked at the sales guy like, "well duh"

I just bought a set for my wheels at my local S&S Tire. They are 80psi rated. They are encased in a brass colored metal with rubber surround. The set ran me about $13 with tax.

Note: They are just the standard pull-through style, not bolt-in.

Well, after some more poking around online, I came across a few places selling these:
Vehicle Maintenance | Valves | Ford Truck Valve 16" Alcoa Aluminum | B207353 - GlobalIndustrial.com

Hope it's ok to post a link here.
Because it's advertised as a Ford Truck Valve for 16" aluminum rims, I'm assuming it's different than the standard bolt-on or snap-in stems.

Anyone know whether these are the right valves for the oem aluminum rims or are they for some special application?

My 16" OEM's got the same standard stems.

I'm not looking at the link, but I see it says Alcoa. It may be that some (DRW maybe) OEM's were made by Alcoa and take special stems.
