Default Black valve stem recommendations?

Anybody replace their valve stem with black ones?
What did you use?

I thought the stem is part of the TPMS sensor, no?

Yes buy the shop can swap out the valve stem with aftermarket, like this one:

I'm wondering if anyone with dark rims have done this.

All tire shops provide black rubber valve stems standard. They have nothing else.

The metal ones that are installed OEM have sensors attached to them. On the OEM toyota sensors you canít change them to black stems unless you are going to remove the sensors

I guess just replacing the nut and cap would be easier than trying to replace the stem.

Why not just get a can of black plastidip, mask off the rim, and spray?

lol my rims are currently plasti dipped Black. I plan on getting a set of rims finished in PVD Black chrome, so figured I'd change this to black while I'm at it.
