      You should go for tire valve caps with plastic or rubber insert. Cleaning agents or road salt will corrode the metal, the cap will get stuck and you risk damage the valve when trying to remove the cap.

      $200 mistake I made earlier. Valves and TPMS sensors had to be replaced on my Lexus. When trying to remove an all metal cap I ripped the top half the valve apart. It was like the cap was fused or soldered with the stem. Damn road salt...

      Check air often enough and use some wd40 or pb blaster in the cap before reinstall.

      I had nice tire valve stem caps for a BMW, but would replace with the generic rubber ones for the winter. I didn’t want the salt messing with them, as mentioned by TechCF.
