Busted tyre valve replacement

Question

so after being on holiday and coming back to drive the celica  after a month of it being sitting around i thought i be good to check the tyre pressures. the rear driver side tyre valve was ripped badly and leaking air. so having replaced the front valves when i did my new front tyres i used the 2 remaining valves today and got them fitted on the back wheels so now all 4 wheels use the metal tyre valves:

link above is the the valves, iv had 2 on the front for well over a year and no issues. no more crappy rubber valves failing on me any more. the valves i linked to are the exact ones i bought and they fit my 17 inch standard toyota rims. should fit all standard toyota rims too.

 

just checked my emails, valves on the front 2 tyres were fitting in august 2017 so they been on for over 2 years and no issues.
