Quote from "NoName" after 30sec of searching the forums:

"Rubber ones work, but yes, metal ones are the better choice. Here, the metal ones are 10 cents more but oh well. I just go to the bike shop and get all their busted tires for free if I want the rubber kind."

I use presta valves off bike tubes, because they are always metal - and come threaded, which is good.

Yeah same here,they do let in more air but at higher pressure i find they're unreliable and can't take the pressure very well.

Then you are using it wrong or have a bad valve stem. They are use on bikes for a good reason, that dont leak and are very reliable.
