Yup, any and every time you get new tires, make sure you get new valve stems for precisely this reason!

When and if I need one I think I will go that route my self.I just need more input from all as too what they say.But that site sure makes it look interesting. Says it will even fill a 1/4 hole....
I have worked with small garden type tires where we fill with material out of a bottle, and after a while when all came back we
still had to install a tube to fix it right.But this is applied by the MFG and it sure looks good On that video.
