Just had Justin Prince refurb my wheels and they look awesome by the way, but I need to replace my valve stems. They are leaking and they leak down over night. I have looked and looked but I've had no luck finding any. I have a request in to Tirerack looking for some as well.

This is what I got off the wheels:
Kosei Japan
VIA-690KG, or it could be VIA-96OKG (I was reading it with a mirror)
Made in Japan

I believe the model is Kosei Seneka S5R.

Today's the day I'll find out if these work. I haven't received anything word back from TireRack and I'm pretty disappointed in them. Everyone please cross your fingers for me.... :)

I just figured that all valve stems were the same size. ^_^

I had always thought the same.... typical passenger car stems are for a .453 dia hole. These wheels were much smaller.

But the good news the ".230 valve stems" did work on these "Kosei Seneka" rems. Oh the Seneka model was also confirmed.

That was for all others, searching for the same answer on Kosei wheels. I've read so many threads that never told the end results and published the correct size.
