After a recent issue, I may get a new set of front wheels & tires and curious if many people have had metal stems break when a rubber might have just flexed out of the way? tires are 50psi max and speed when roading (very rare for me) is less than 20mph so those don't come into play. Equipment does not sit out in the sun, so that's less of an issue for me than maybe someone else.
