    well I was on my 2nd coat when I noticed some build up/bubbling. I'm thinking I didn't wait long enough for the 1st coast to dry ( not gonna lie I might be waited 10 mins). I think where I also went wrong was goingover the same area twice in one coat. I'm also thinking taking the wheels off next time will make for easier application.

    How long do you suggest to wait for drying between coats?

    30 minutes between coats. 3-4 coats.

    Be careful of "light" coats they cause texturing. Be careful of heavy coats they are worse. Of the 2 caution on the side of light coats. First 2 coats are the most important IMO.

    I'm not a pro just going off my experiences. It's addictive

    And pre cleaning is key. A good alcohol or PDS from DYC.com is the way to go. Pressure wash if available. Take your time, set a whole day aside, do lots of thin thin coats

The Cadillac dealer told me they aren't sold separately. I may pick these up from a local Dodge dealer.
    To clear the air for everyone. Rubber TPMS have replaceable balance stems. Your valve stem does not clip onto the sensor it is screwed in the top forming a 'T' if the valve stem was to be facing down. The stem has the metal coming out the bottom, it's flat on the sides and slides into the the top of the sponsor. You can see the hole in your photos in the sensor that you put the stem into. The photo with the red box around the metal on the sensor, just above that is te hole the sensor slides into. As to why your dealers can't find part numbers for stems only, I have no answer. I work in service at a Cadillac dealer and this is all fact.

    New rims and tires after being replaced. Still looks the same but back in action.

    Thanks for the info. What is the GM part number for the stem?

    I just bought stems for a 2013 dodge dart, and they worked perfectly and looked just like to pic (clip on, no screw).
