Black Valve Stems for OEM TPMS?

I have a set of black wheels I want to mount but the OEM stems only come in silver according to Tischer. Are there aftermarket stems in black that I can use that will hold the TPMS, or do I have to paint a set of silver ones?

Once they are in and mounted you can barely see the silver. Then just add black valve stem caps and you should be all set

Get them powder coated to match your wheels.

That's exactly what I did. And besides the black caps, I painted the stems with a black permanent marker, so everything is black. They're practically invisible, just the way I wanted. Silver nuts looked like crap .

Not to throw this thread off topic but what do you guys do about wheel weights? Do most places give the option for black weights?.

You need a incredibly high end shop to offer black wheel weights. My plan on my next setof tires is to grab some weights in advance, spray paint them black and take them in with me for the tire swap.
