Every single car has valve stem caps, but let’s be honest—they’re all really boring. In fact, most cars come with the same black plastic caps that are designed to do a single job: protect your valve stem. If you always wanted to personalize your car but didn’t want to spend a lot of money, you’ve come to the right place.
Swapping out your valve stem caps is one of the easiest and cheapest modifications you can make to your car, and there are plenty of styles and designs to choose from that reflect your personality. Some valve stem caps are available in a variety of colors as well, which means you can get something that either matches your car’s color scheme or something that provides a bit of contrast.
There isn’t much to say about valve stem caps because it really does come down to what style fits your personality. Below, you’ll find our picks for the top 10 fun replacement valve stem caps you can get for your car.

1. Editor's Pick: Senzeal Aluminum Grenade Valve Stem Caps
Constructed with an aluminum body and a plastic head, these valve stem caps from Senzeal resemble grenades. They’re available in a variety of colors, including black, blue, rainbow, gold, gray, green, orange, pink, purple, red, silver, and sky blue. These caps are extremely popular on Amazon, so if you want something that stands out, these caps fit the bill.
2. Lucky Shot Polished 40 Caliber Bullet Valve Stem Caps
Available in nickel or brass finishes are these 40 caliber bullet valve stem caps from Lucky Shot. These valve stem caps are made in the U.S. from once-fired American-made 40 caliber rounds. Obviously they don’t have any live primers, powder, or any explosives, so they’re completely safe to use. Lucky Shot says these valve stem caps feature a patented insert that will never come out or spin off, while a lacquer coating prevents tarnishing on the finish.
3. SAVORI Handmade Crystal Rhinestone Valve Stem Caps
SAVORI has a wide assortment of handmade crystal rhinestone valve stem caps in two different styles. One style resembles your typical valve stem cap, but outfitted with crystal rhinestones, while another takes the style of a crown. The normal-looking valve stem caps are available in black, blue, red, white, and pink, while the crown-styled caps come in black, black/red, pink, silver, silver/red, white, pearl blue, pearl pink, pearl rose red, and pearl white.
These valve stem caps feature sparkling rhinestones and are made of ABS plastic, coated with polymer clay. The inside of the cap uses a rotating thread structure so it fastens tightly to the valve stem.
4. Senzeal Long Impale Spike Style Polished Aluminum Valve Stem Caps
These spike-style polished aluminum valve stem caps are also from Senzeal. These caps are available in 32mm sizes in black, red, and silver (as a 5-pack) or in 46mm length in black, blue, rainbow, green, orange, pink, purple, red, and silver. Made from aluminum, the one thing you have to keep in mind is that these valve stem caps shouldn’t be used on a vehicle if you go through automatic car washes. If you do, you’ll have to remember to remove the caps first.
5. Dsycar Black Skull Style Valve Stem Caps
For something a bit more sinister, take a look at these Dsycar black skull valve stem caps. They’re made from what Dsycar calls “antitrust copper core,” which is a corrosion resistant and durable material. The surface of these valve stem caps have been plated to avoid metal oxidization, rusting, and corrosion. Dsycar does offer a 100% money back guarantee within 60 days if you’re not happy with the quality of these valve stem caps.
6. Graphics and More Subdued American Flag Valve Stem Caps
For something a bit plainer and not as eccentric as other products on this list are these American Flag valve stem caps from Graphics and More. These caps are available in black, orange, blue, red, yellow, white, purple, pink, green, aluminum, gold, and light blue. These are made from machined aluminum and include an inserted rubber o-ring for an air tight fit. Each valve stem cap is approximately 14mm long and regardless of which color you choose, the caps sport a black and white American flag on the end.
7. Frienda Handmade Crystal Rhinestone Valve Stem Caps
For a different bling option there are these crystal rhinestone caps from Frienda. These feature sparkling rhinestones and are made of ABS plastic and coated with polymer clay. These look similar to the standard SAVORI caps but Frienda’s options are available in black, white, pink, white/blue, and white/pink. Also included is a crystal ring emblem sticker that you can stick wherever you’d like, embedded with 35 sparkling crystals. The crystal ring looks to be a good fit around your engine ignition button, if you have one.
8. TOMALL Dice Style Valve Stem Caps
