You would be looking for a valve stem for an industrial tubless tire, or
a tubeless truck rim. Normal tubeless tires have valve stems that just
pull in to be installed, sort of a grommet affair. These install by
inserting from the tire side of the rim, and threading a nut down the
valve stem that protrudes through the rim, smooshing it together and
sealing the air in, and being more resisitant to getting torn off is you
