Hello, I would like to know the composition of the metal used for the threads of the Zus TPMS caps. Will it be resistant to galvanic corrosion? Most valve cores are either nickel-plated or brass valve. According to Tire Rack, “nickel-plated valve cores must be used in the aluminum valve stems of tire pressure monitoring sensors because using a standard brass valve core in an aluminum tire pressure sensor valve stem will experience galvanic corrosion and the brass valve core will eventually seize in the valve’s aluminum barrel”.
Although this is regarding iTDMS systems built into modern vehicles, the same metallurgical conditions exist if dissimilar/incompatible metals are threaded, as the Zus dTPMS caps are to the Tire stem valve. I’d like to avoid permanently mating the Zus TPMS to my tire stem valves. Please let me know if Zus has accounted for this condition, and what valve core metals I should avoid installing Zus TPMS caps onto.
